The widely-publicized detection of phosphine gas on Venus – a possible "biosignature" suggesting the hellish planet could have living microbes in its clouds – was probably caused by sulfur gas.
A new study identified 37 recently active volcanic structures on Venus. The study provides some of the best evidence yet that Venus is still a geologically active planet.
According to new study by a team of NASA scientists, Venus would have been able to maintain stable temperatures – from a low of 20 °C (68 °F) to a high of 50 °C (122 °F) – for about three billion years.
A new study presents the first physical evidence that the Venus’ and Jupiter’s gravity can cause shifts in Earth’s orbit—and swings in its climate—every 405,000 years.
Japanese researchers recently conducted a study of the night side of Venus. In addition to being the first of its kind, this study also revealed that the atmosphere behaves differently on the night side, which was unexpected.
Once deployed, the mission will determine the composition, chemistry, dynamics, and radioactive transfer of Venus’ atmosphere.
Over the last few years electronics based on the semiconductor silicon carbide (SiC) have started to mature. Those properties make it a very suitable candidate for computing on Venus.
Using the Akatsuki spacecraft, Japanese scientists have detected a large, bow-shaped anomaly in the upper atmosphere of Venus. Strangely, the 6,200-mile-long structure is refusing to budge despite the 225 mile-per-hour winds that surround it.
Astronomers have found a rocky planet orbiting a small star that is within easy telescope views from Earth.
