Scientists find the first-ever active volcano on Venus
For the first time, scientists have found direct evidence of an active volcano on Venus. They looked into radar images taken almost three decades ago—in the 1990s—by NASA's Magellan mission. The images revealed a volcanic vent on Venus changed shape and grew significantly in size in less than a year. While over 1,300 active volcanoes have been observed on Earth, no evidence of volcanism has been found on Venus, until now.
