New 3D model reveals Venus’ volcanoes are actually still active

The volcanoes of Venus are still active today, with at least 37 areas showing recent activity, a new 3D model reveals. This simulation from the University of Maryland and the Institute of Geophysics at ETH Zurich shows the surface of Venus as being geologically alive. These Venusian volcanoes form in clusters, potentially revealing details of activity taking place beneath the surface of our neighboring world. “This is the first time we are able to point to specific structures and say ‘Look, this is not an ancient volcano but one that is active today, dormant perhaps, but not dead.
