Venusian Volcanoes

A new study using data from the ESA's Venus Express spacecraft presents strong evidence that volcanoes on Venus are still erupting.  Localized, discreet hotspots-- even hotter than normal on Venus-- strongly suggests ash is being blown into the air and lava is running on the surface.

A Venus that is still internally active would be a major plus for planetary science.
