Abstract

We present the results of new processing the archival telemetry data, returned from the surface of Venus by the VENERA spacecraft landers in 1975 and 1982. Reprocessing of the unique data with up-to-date techniques resulted in substantial improvement of the level of details. New analysis of the VENERA television images led to detection and identification of a dozen of hypothetical living-like objects. Many objects with a complex regular structure and presumably very slow motions (in the case of hypothetical fauna) have been found. These sizable objects may potentially indicate the existence of life on Venus with its radically different physical conditions. We call for a new special mission, much more sophisticated than the VENERA missions (1975–1982), should be urgently carried out to investigate the hypothetical life on Venus.
