        Surprisingly little water has escaped to space from Venus

        Kiruna, Sweden (SPX) Nov 12, 2020
        On 13 November Moa Persson, Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) and Umea University, will defend her doctoral thesis. Her thesis shows that only a small part of the historical water content on Venus has been lost to space over the past 4 billion years. This is much less than researchers previously thought. The thesis is built on analyses of how the solar wind, a stream of charged particles from the Sun, affects the Venusian atmosphere and causes atmospheric particles to escape to space.

        The Venus 'ring of fire'

        Zurich, Switzerland (SPX) Jul 23, 2020
        Years ago, planetary researchers discovered unusual circular structures on the surface of Venus when observing high-resolution images from NASA's Magellan mission. Such structures are known as coronae (from the Latin meaning "crowns"; singular: corona). A few years ago, a team of ETH researchers led by Taras Gerya, Professor of Geophysics at the Department of Earth Sciences, used computer models to investigate how these structures may have formed. Most researchers assume that these odd circu ... read more
