A new study of Ovda flactus lava flows on Venus has been pointed out by scientists, which has been found in the study to be composed of basaltic lava. And this finding undermines the notion that Venus may have once had liquid water like the Earth, its oceans may have been like the Earth.
In previous studies by scientists, it was suggested that Venus was once warm in the early days And was wet, it must have been based on the chemistry of its atmosphere and the presence of the highlands. Their highlands would be made of granular rock, just like the continents of the Earth, because oceans needed water to form.
Scientists at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI), including Northland College undergraduate student intern Wroblowski, found in their study that a volcanic flow on the Ovada Regio Highlands Plateau of Venus is made up of basalt lava, as soon as liquid water Like Earth with an ancient ocean. The Ovida Flextus lava flow of the planet Earth is again called by LPI team And mapped using data. Scientists study found that this flow is not granular, as expected from its location, but Venus is more likely to be made of basalt rock than it can form with or without water.
A new map and results of the planet Venus have been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets.We know very little about the surface of the common Tor Venus, the team member Dr.Alan Triman, a University Space Research Association (USRA) scientist, says at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI), that if Ovada Regio Highlands is composed of basaltic rock, it might have been squeezed to its current heights by internal forces, Possibly just like mountains that originate from plate tectonics on Earth.
