Most technology would not last a day on our planet’s evil twin. By creating Venus’s surface and atmospheric conditions here on Earth, a team of engineers is designing spacecraft technology that will last for months.
Climate simulations of Venus’s history could provide insights into the habitability of Earth and of exoplanets.
New research suggests that the surface of Venus is busy, but it may take new missions to our “sibling” planet to confirm this.
Researchers apply a radio holographic method to standard Venusian atmospheric data, resulting in outputs with finer vertical resolution and revealing small-scale atmospheric structures.
If present, microbes could explain evolving patterns in the planet’s atmosphere when observed in ultraviolet light.
Catastrophic lithospheric recycling is unlikely to be the cause of Venus’s young surface from mantle convection models constrained by offset between the center of mass and center of shape of planet.
Enigmatic surface features on Venus called coronae are important for how Venus loses heat, and measurement of surface flexing around these features indicates higher heat flows than on Earth.
A packed session entitled "Unveiling Venus" at the recent Lunar and Planetary Science Conference shows renewed interest in our sister planet.
How energetic would lightning on Venus have to be to be detected by sensors? A new model sheds light.
New research shows that an electric field surrounding Venus is stripping its atmosphere of water—and the same phenomenon may plague exoplanets scientists hope might be habitable.
