Gary Gilligan sent this link in and it seems the atmosphere of Venus contains a million times as much sulphur dioxide as that of the Earth. It is stuck below the dense clouds that engulf the planet and much speculation has been made about its origins – volcanoes or elsewhere. Sunlight is unable to penetrate the clouds and this is thought to be the reason why the sulphur dioxide has not been dispersed. The Venus Express spacecraft has been observing the planet for 6 years and NASA is now beginning to think active volcanoes might well exist below those clouds.
