Life on upper layers of atmosphere on Venus

  1. Dec 15, 2011 #1
    I heard that on Venus at a height where atmosphere pressure meets earths ground level pressure, the temperatures also meets earths temperatures.

    1. Can someone approve this?

    Since Venus atmosphere is almost entirely CO2 and the rest is water vapor, it means that not only bacteria, but also plants and maybe even some animals could live there, and water should be available in liquid form. well Venus day is some 243 earth days, (which is ruffly the same as Venus year, so it is Christmas every day on Venus) which means it is hot and bright for 120 days and cold and dark for 120 days which is unpleasently extreme for plants, But still.

    2. Can plants exist in upper layers of Venus atmosphere (On top of a balloon for e.g.)?
