If the search for intelligent extra-terrestrial life marches on, and the researchers have suggested is no shortage of possible signs to look for, including carbon monoxide, dust storms, and methane.
But a new study suggests that it is possible for E. T., it is not the production of one of these, and it is the emission of a gas, toxic to humans as carbon monoxide phosphine.
It is a toxic gas that is used in the semiconductor industry, it is a colorless gas that smells like garlic or fish and it can also be seen as a unique “biosignature,” the researchers believe.

“We will carry out a wide-ranging and in-depth evaluation of phosphine as a biosignature gas in an oxygen-poor atmosphere of exo-planet,” the researchers, led by Clara Sousa-Silva wrote in a summary of a study to be presented at the annual Astrobiology Science Conference. “We have to consider not only the spectroscopic potential of the phosphine, but also the thermodynamic of false positives, biochemistry and cell viability, and atmospheric deposition to live.”
Even though it is poisonous to life on Earth, the phosphine is present in the atmosphere, it was a “trace component” of the researchers included in the abstract. The traces of gas that can be found in sewers, swamps, and the intestines of the fish, and in human infants, as well as a number of other agencies.
According to the CDC, the gas can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, and is “in direct contact with phosphine liquid may cause frostbite.” It is also highly fire-resistant, further complicating matters.
“[I]t is not the obvious choice,” Sousa-Silva, a molecular astrophysics postdoctoral associate at MIT, said in a commentary given at the conference, which shall be obtained by Live Science.
Sousa-Silva has been added, it is possible that they would be able to produce phosphine, as they do not contain oxygen. Phosphine itself is toxic, but the combination of it with oxygen, they noted.
Phosphine is not seen as a “biosignature gas for all of the previously mentioned problems with phosphine, including the intensive use of energy, but, Sousa-Silva, and others, believe that it is an important marker in the life of a low-oxygen habitats, like is produced on the basis of similar surface fluxes, which are found in anaerobic ecosystems on the planet.”
EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL LIFE, IT WOULD BE SCARCER THAN FIRST THOUGHT, SAYS STUDY
“In addition, as found in a temperate planet, or phosphine, is a very promising biosignature gas, and geochemical, the false positive rate for the phosphine generation is very unlikely to occur,” the researchers added in the abstract.
As the phosphine, it is, indeed, a by-product of a ufo, it’s one of the reasons why mankind has had to struggle with finding the traces of life so far.
Earlier this month, an extensive study is comprised of more than 3 years of age, found no evidence of the existence of extra-terrestrial life is more than 1,300 of the stars in the vicinity of the Earth.
