Japanese Scientists Have Discovered A Strange And Unique Pattern Formed Within The Clouds Of Venus

Solar System - Venus

A research group working in Japan have discovered a unique pattern that has formed within the clouds of the planet Venus after an analysis was performed on this massive structure from the spacecraft Akatsuki. The new study on Venus’s clouds was headed up by Project Assistant Professor Hiroki Kashimura from Kobe University and demonstrated how these clouds came into being after climate simulations were performed.

As Phys.org report, the skies of Venus are normally flooded with massive clouds of sulfuric acid which hover above the planet at a range of between 27 to 45 miles. These clouds make it extremely cumbersome to observe the surface of Venus through telescopes here on Earth or even from orbiters close to Venus. And with temperatures on the planet itself observed to be in the range of 460 degrees Celsius (860 degrees Fahrenheit), sending probes to visit the surface of the planet is also problematic too.
