Life on Venus

Looks like Bowie got it wrong.  It’s to be announced today that they have found phosphine in the atmosphere of Venus.

Have any P&Brs ever discovered microbial life in a distant planet?  Or been to Venus?

I remember reading old science fiction books where they reckoned Venus was probably a hot swampy jungle and the best bet elsewhere in the solar system for life - then the Russians sent a couple of probes and found it was more like a medieval depiction of hell.

I still don't think we've ever sent anything there that's lasted any great amount of time before ceasing transmission thanks to the temperature (7-800 degrees?) atmospheric pressure...oh aye...and sulphuric acid clouds!

This was not only in science fiction.

No less than Carl Sagan himself was theorising on the possibility of terraforming Venus in the early 1960s
