The evidence of currently active volcanoes on Venus It was announced earlier this year in the inexplicable heat of regions believed to contain only ancient volcanoes.

Although large-scale images of Venus have been taken with radar, the dense clouds of sulfuric acid would inhibit taking optical views with light. However, NASA has submitted a artistic reconstruction of an erupting Venus volcano, according to the conditions of this planet.

Volcanoes could play an important rolein a life cycle on Venus, as they could push chemical foods into the colder upper atmosphere, where hungry microbes could float, according to NASA.

In the image, the column of an erupting volcano rises upwards, while a vast lava field covers part of the hot and cracked surface of the superheated twin of the Earth.
