Venus is having mood swings. Or is it gravity waves? https://www.wired.com/2017/01/gravity-waves-might-lighting-venus-upper-atmosphere/
Nothing else about the planet's atmosphere makes sense, so sure, why not?

When searching for another orb to call home, avoid the garnet planets. They won't welcome you in peace. http://www.space.com/35284-garnet-exoplanets-hostile-for-life.html
Earth's element ratio is part of what makes the planet just right for life. Not so with so-called "garnet planets."

In 2005 Cassini dropped off Huygens as it swung into orbit around Saturn. And what amazing things we've seen since. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/01/saturn-moon-titan-nasa-huygens-cassini-space-science/
When it landed on Saturn’s hazy moon Titan in 2005, the Huygens probe revealed a surprising world of lakes, rain, winds, and wonder.

Scientists think the universe's energy isn't fixed. And that may explain how dark energy "stretches" space. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/01/simple-explanation-mysterious-space-stretching-dark-energy
Could the stuff that's blowing up the cosmos arise because energy is not conserved?

We have 97% of our CHNOPS in common with the galaxy. So we are made of stardust, after all. http://www.space.com/35276-humans-made-of-stardust-galaxy-life-elements.html
For decades, science popularizers have said humans are made of stardust, and now, a new survey of 150,000 stars shows just how true that is.
