A few days ago Science Times said that there was possible that there was life on Venus. Which would be pretty cool since they are our neighbors. And you know aliens would be a pretty cool idea to have around the solar system. Even though Venus seems like not a place I want to visit with acid rain and things like that. But anways. Russia decided that they would “claim” Venus a Russian planet..
After indications that it may harbour life, the head of Russia's space agency has explained that Venus may be a ‘living hell,’ but it’s a ‘Russian planet’. Dmitry Rogozin points out that the USSR was the only country that managed to land on it https://t.co/K9E9o8oP4Q

Science Times – Recently, scientists have found evidence of biosignature in the atmosphere of Venus, which may indicate the presence of life in some form on the planet. Shortly after, Russia’s space chief claims that Venus is a ‘Russian planet’ because it has been sending probes on the planet.
Since 1970, Russia has been landing probes on Venus and has been planning for a new mission to continue exploring the planet.
The new mission is still in its planning stage and is likely to be conducted with NASA. However, Dmitry Rogozin, Roscosmos’ boss, said that they are also planning a separate Venus mission that is likely to be conducted without any help from any country.
Rogozin said that the exploration of Venus is now one of their agenda. They are currently preparing the Venera-D project in cooperation with NASA, but they are also considering their own mission.
“We think that Venus is a Russian planet, so we shouldn’t lag behind,” Rogozin said. The exploration of Venus is part of the space missions by the Russians for 2021-2030, included in the united government program.
“Our country was the first and only on Venus. Our equipment was there, and it conducted research. In general, it is a living hell,” Rogozin said.
The Russian state-owned news agency TASS reported that Lev Zeleny of the Russian Space Research Institute said that Russia is already planning at least three research vehicles sent to Venus. However, it is still unclear what type of research vehicles that will be.
Yeah.. no. Look Russia you can’t just go claiming Venus yours. We aren’t little kids where you can just decide that “oh Russia is mine, I called it first”. There are rules here. The Moon is American because we actually landed there. You can’t just send a drone and decide that it is yours.You send someone to Venus and you can claim it. Until then it’s not Russian. Sorry Putin, I am calling you out. And plus you can’t mess with the USA we got the Space Force. Somewhere the Venusians are probably getting ready for war.
