Missing microbial poop in Venus’ clouds suggests the planet has no life

In a new study, researchers analyzed the biochemistry of the thick, sulfur-rich Venusian clouds, which have fascinated scientists for decades. They looked for “fingerprints” that any potential cloud-dwelling organisms would leave there as a result of their feeding and excretion.
