Studies found the availability of water in the clouds of Venus is too low to support life. It had been suggested microbes might be living in the clouds of Venus because of the presence of a gas called Phosphene, which is largely only produced by living organisms. Jonathan Amos has more It's an audacious idea the notion that microorganisms could be floating through the atmosphere of Venus. It would be extremely challenging, of course, because we know the planet's clouds are dominated by corrosive sulfuric acid, but the presence of phosphene needs to be explained. This is a gas that on Earth is associated with life with microbes living in the guts of some animals such as penguins. This new study, however, finds that whatever the source of phosphene, it's highly unlikely to be microorganisms because there simply isn't enough water in the clouds to support them.

When the US filed us request extra Jelena's song from Britain last month. He was facing a single charge of hacking into government computer crime, with a maximum five-year prison term on how the American Justice department has added seventeen new counts to indictment linked to Mr Assange is alleged role in what it called one of the largest compromises of classified information in US history. The WikiLeaks founder who spent seven years in hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London is currently serving eight fifty week prison sentence here for jumping bail Sweden. Also wants to extradite him over a rape allegation. Critics say the new American charges against you in a song J mounts when attack on press freedom. I had more from Chris. Buckley, in Washington, eight already been charged on one kind of hockey no or conspiring to hack alongside. Chelsea Manning, the former US army intelligence analyst, and I was getting hundreds of thousands of pieces of documents of US intelligence. Details and documents. But these new charges all seventeen of them are alleged breaches of America's espionage. The Justice department says the founder of WikiLeaks published classified material that they say, put the lives of sources in grave danger including people who provided information to the US military to the US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. And they say it was genuine risk to life, not as why he's being charged. So why then is this being seen as an assault on the press? Well, it depends as you look at Julian Assange himself, from the US point of view. He has a criminal who stole unpublished information that was pretty lives in danger to others. He is a campaigner. He is a journalist, Dave Yuma, someone who was really essentially acting as a whistle blower, and providing information that was showing in some cases. There are questions about higher America was operating. So it comes down to the serious question of how you view Julian Assange. And the truth is, as people see him very, very differently because the prosecutor was saying he's not a journalist, what's been the reaction from WikiLeaks and also from the US media say the New York Times has been writing about this. Yeah. The WikiLeaks themselves feel that this prosecution is an attack on America's first amendment as a constitutional rights to freedom for the press, of course, also freedom of speech in a tweet. They said, it's the end of national security journalism on the first amendment, it gives you a sense of how strongly, they feel they're hubbing criticism in the past of Julian Assange in some of the US media, he is a figure who does a tract, just as much score as he does, I suppose some kind of, love from those who follow unbeliev, he has been wrongly treated, but actually there are many in the US media here, concerned about this, because in the past whenever information has been leaked. It has tended to be that the thirties have gone for those that have leaked the information in this case, they're going for someone who's published information. And they believe that could be a precedent for things to come, particularly with an administration that at times is not favorable towards the press and believes they're involved in fake news. Chris Berklee in Washington. After nearly three years battling to secure an agreement on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union time appears to have run out for two reason, may the British Prime minister is now facing huge pressure to set a date for her own departure. If she's going, then we need to get a leadership election resolved really the lettuce, by the middle of to lie. Otherwise, we're, we're creating even more kale's. She will be inconsiderable turmoil. She'll be considering her position. And I think that she will have to set out a timetable for Graham tomorrow to conservative MP's Jeffrey robot, Clifton, Brown. Dominic grieve, highlighting, the loss of authority of Mrs Maes latest botched attempt to win parliamentary support for Brexit. Dale senior cabinet ministers have told the BBC she should announce a timetable fire departure later today. So what do we know for sure political correspondent Jonathan Blake? Well, there's no clear plan emerging for two reason may, too. Announce the departure from Downing Street, but there has been growing pressure on her to name a date for her resignation because her latest revised plan for Brexit has gone down, so badly among her own MP's and many of her cabinet toy leagues that really those in her own party. See no alternative now than to force her out one way or another. So at some point on Friday, we expect the prime minister to meet the chairman of what's called the nineteen twenty two committee with which is the committee of backbench conservative MP's, and he will expect her, I think, to name a date for her departure to set a timetable for the contest to replace her, and it's looking like the likely timing for that will be the tenth of June, and that is because it gives her time to get the state, visit by US President Donald Trump done and dusted. Also a by-election in one part of the UK to choose a new member of parliament. But at this stage, it looks like really Theresa May's. As only reason for being in office, which is to push through the latest revised version of her. Brexit plan is dead in the water because the opposition to that has been so overwhelming from not only her own party, but all sides here in Westminster that she really has no alternative now. But to say exactly when she plans to go, and if it is the tenth of June when will the UK have a new prime minister and what will the process be the contest can take probably a minimum of six weeks, so we're looking at I would say, the earliest sort of the end of July time could stretch on into the autumn. But the process in simple terms allows conservative members of parliaments to whittle the candidates down to two and then the conservative party membership, as a whole across the United Kingdom will then votes between those two to choose their new leader. And with that the new prime minister, and what does all this mean for Brexit, because. There's some suggestion in the newspapers that she'll still try to pass some legislation regarding the EU withdrawal. Well, the deadline for Britain to leave the EU is, as it stands the thirty first of October, this year after an extension to the article fifty process was agreed between the UK and the EU the legal default if no legislation is passed in that time. And no deal is agreed is the UK leaves the EU without a deal. Now, we know that MP's here in Westminster will do all they can to stop that. But frankly, to do that they need some form of process to be happening in parliament. And if the proposal that the prime minister has put forward has no, no chance of preceding. Then there isn't going to be anything for the MP's to do to prevent no deal. So it's really unclear as to even if Theresa May gone. Get anything through what her successor will be able to do in the time available to take the UK out of the EU with a deal in place. Jonathan Blake in Westminster.

Not the fact that was lifted led a number of Republicans to come forward and say that they weren't sure that was the right decision. Asking the administration, at some cases, even before that not to do it. So I think what you're seeing is a move backed by congress to try and say, listen, you need to pay more attention to Russia.
