Wrong planet. Unless you suspect Martian farts can travel great distances?
Those inscrutable Martians are flanking us before the Great Invasion begins.
The team on Venus just Fart more and gave away their position.

Martian 👽 parts have made it as far as Earth 🌍, it’s just a little farther trip down the gravity well.

Venus is a “Russian planet,” the head of Russia’s state space agency said Tuesday following new research that suggests there could be life on the second planet from the sun.

The research, published in the journal Nature Astronomy on Monday, details British and American scientists’ discovery of phosphine gas in Venus’ clouds and puts forward possible theories for its origin, including that of extraterrestrial life.
>> Roscosmos also announced plans Tuesday to launch an independent Russian expedition to Venus “without involving wide international cooperation.”

Well fuck you, too.

Rogozin has become a Russian troll. Pay no attention to him. The US is about to stop paying for seats aboard the Russian Soyuz capsule, because we have our own capsule now. Our payments have been the only thing holding their space program together. This is what their Buran space shuttle looks like today. They hadn't been doing maintenance on the hangar it was stored in, and it collapsed:

Is there anything in Australia that won’t try to kill us?!

I have a cone snail shell here that my mother found on the beach on a holiday... and took back to her hotel, where one of the staff directed her attention to the venomous hook poking out the end that hadn't yet managed to tag her.

I hear most of Australia's human population tends to be pretty friendly, as well.

This article has more detail about what the phosphine gas discovery on Venus actually means. What it comes down to are the two sides of the coin - Is there any way to imagine the phosphine gas being created without life (not of known ways). Is it possible to imagine life with the only liquid being sulfuric acid, not water (seems unlikely but more likely than the other choice). Then the interesting details of thoughts about how that might be possible.
