Average temperature is well above 1500 Fahrenheit. Whatever would live there cant be carbon based. Atmosphere is primarily Co2. Our hypothetical scorpion would have to resist high temperatures and breathe the way trees breathe.

There are stars, a sun, and a moon. That's it. No planets. Go look at NASA's own photos of "planets." Only a willful fool would believe those are real. You are deceived.

Has anyone been able to track down any research or studies published by Leonid Ksanfomaliti yet?

It's funny how you never see some kind of attempt at colour rendering with the Venus pictures. Okay everything got baked and was in flux as it baked, but there are visible the artifacts lying around from the lander in high contrast, of which the orginal colour would be known, the lander itself, and its known colours??

We could really do with someone fluent in Russian to come forward, and relay to us the latest developments. What I find most odd, is this should be huge news, but nothing in mainstream press. Even in Russia, this news seem's to have dried up. What is going on? Press been silenced?
Leonid Ksanfomaliti, an astronomer based at the Space Research Institute of Russia’s Academy of Sciences, analyzed photographs taken by a Russian landing probe during a 1982 during a mission to explore the heavily acid-clouded planet.
But in his article, published in the magazine Solar System Research, Ksanfomaliti says the Russian photographs depict objects resembling a “disk,” a “black flap” and a “scorpion.”
