NASA-Funded Research Suggests Venus is Geologically Alive

  • Categoría Astronomía
  • For the first time, scientists have detected clear signs of recent lava flows on the surface of Venus.
    The observations reveal that volcanoes on Venus appeared to erupt between a few hundred years to 2.5 million years ago. This suggests the planet may still be geologically active, making Venus one of the few worlds in our solar system that has been volcanically active within the last 3 million years.
