Mr Red BS: Life in Venus' Atmosphere (22) RE: BS: Life in Venus' Atmosphere 16 Sep 20

If life forms on earth can live in specific depths of water, I see no reason for life forms having an ability to inhabit specific layers of the atmosphere of Venus.

Eminently possible for some form life to survive, but I might question its ability to get started.

There is a conceit for people to assume that life has to be carbon based like it is on Earth. The problemo arises from the telescope effect, we only see what we can see. We are carbon based, and see carbon bases. Our science is sophisticated, based on carbon bases. We have no other bases as a basis. Basically.

Having said that, there is a well researched theoretical system of DNA based on 6 nucleotides not 4 that does not trouble our understanding of DNA (so far). Alien to us but within range of our telescope.
