The World of Social Dragonflies

Astronomers recently found phosphine in Venus’ atmosphere, which indicates that there MIGHT be life there. Obviously, I couldn’t stop myself from imagining what that life could be like, and then this episode happened.

HOSTED by Moiya McTier (@GoAstroMo), astrophysicist and folklorist
