Boffins link ALIEN STRUCTURE ON VENUS to Solar System's biggest ever grav wave


Re: Click baity headline is click bait

By that definition, anything extra-terrestrial would be alien, making the term redundant in this context. The whole planet Venus is alien. The word "Alien" in the clickbait headline is capitalised making it into a noun suggestive of "living aliens" rather than an entity.
