Venus is ‘alive’: Scientists find evidence of volcanic eruptions on the planet

Scientists have found the most direct evidence of volcanic eruptions on Venus, suggesting that the hot, lifeless planet shrouded in sulfuric acid fumes is still geologically “alive.”


This evidence comes from NASA’s Magellan probe to Venus. Scientists compared photos taken by Magellan eight months apart and found that the caldera of a volcano grew dramatically during a sudden collapse. This collapse is usually caused by the eruption of magma. Scientists believe this is the strongest evidence yet of active magma volcanoes on Venus.

The discovery makes Venus the third known planetary body in the solar system to host active magma volcanoes, after Earth and Jupiter’s moon Io. (Source: IT House)
