NASA climate model: Venus was once habitable
New York (UPI) Aug 11, 2016
Venus was likely once habitable, according to the projections of a new NASA climate model. Scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies developed a model to explore Venus' past using tools and algorithms similar to those employed by climate scientists. The model was designed to determine whether or not Venus, with its hot, water-less surface and CO2-chocked atmosphere, might have once hosted Earth-like conditions. Scientists have previously suggested that Venus' slow r ... read more
