Recent research has found more volcanic activity on Venus than was previously known. Scientists used radar images from NASA’s Magellan spacecraft (1990-1992) to study the planet. They discovered eruptions at two new sites on Venus, challenging previous ideas about its volcanoes and suggesting they might be more active than once thought. The study, led by Davide Sulcanese from Italy’s d’Annunzio University and published in Nature Astronomy, revealed large lava flows in Venus’ northern hemisphere, similar in scale to Earth’s volcanic activity. Two new volcanoes were found on Venus: Sif Mons in Eistla Regio and a large volcanic plain in Niobe Planitia. These areas have shield volcanoes with gentle slopes made by flowing lava. Near Sif Mons, lava covered about 12 square miles (30 square km), and in Niobe Planitia, it covered 17 square miles (45 square km). Radar scans showed the lava flows followed the terrain’s slopes. Using advanced technology, this study analyzed data from Magellan, which mapped Venus extensively. Future NASA and European Space Agency missions could reveal more about Venus and Earth’s geological differences. Studying Venus’ volcanoes also helps understand planetary heat, surface changes, and atmospheric effects, which are crucial for grasping its extreme environment.
