Venus in the Sky

11 Apr 2010

At www.physorg.com/print189959182.html is an article to warm the cockles of old time SIS stalwarts. It has the title, 'Venus is Alive - geologically speaking' and refers to images sent back from the Venus Express spacecraft that show young lava flows on the surface of the planet. There is also a video that can be clicked on with a visual insight of the discovery - refuting some scientists who claim it is geologically inactive because the surface of the planet is too smooth.

The same story pops up on Daily Galaxy April 9th and adds that although now recognising volcanic activity is happening on the planet scientists remain puzzled by the apparent youthful nature of the surface.
