Suddenly, a mission to investigate whether Venus might be hospitable to life after all doesn't seem quite so outlandish.
Venus, second planet from the sun, is the brightest planet in our solar system.
Rocket Lab's life-hunting Venus mission in 2023 will be just the beginning, if all goes according to the company's plan.
The main goals involve investigating the case for life on Venus and figuring out the best ways to hunt it down, if it is indeed there.
A chemical you've likely never heard of has burst into the news thanks to scientists' announcement that they have detected phosphine, which they say may be a sign of life, in the clouds of Venus.
Discovering life beyond Earth may well start with a sniff, a whiff of some chemical that scientists struggle to explain without invoking a strange, shadowy microbe.
The moon and Venus will form a triangle with the Beehive star cluster in the predawn sky on Monday (Sept. 14).

In many ways, Venus shows us an Earth that could have been; the twin that grew up in a different environment.
In the depths of Venus' hellish atmosphere, a layer of mysterious haze could be home to life, a new study finds.
Rocket Lab, which gives small spacecraft dedicated rides to Earth orbit, plans to go interplanetary soon with an astrobiology mission to the second rock from the sun.
Lurking just below the atmosphere of Venus is a wall of acid clouds that whip around the planet at speeds close to that of a commercial air jet on Earth.
Researchers have identified 37 features on Venus that were likely created by volcanism recently, potentially reshaping our understanding of the hellishly hot planet.
A daring sun-grazing NASA spacecraft turns its focus to Venus today (July 10) with a critical flyby that will pass through the planet's weird "tail."
After putting on a great show in our evening sky during the first half of this year, dazzling Venus puts on a spectacular showing for early morning risers for the balance of 2020.
