Ozone layer on planet Venus?
« on: October 08, 2011, 02:26:57 PM »
Researchers tracking the European Space Agency's (ESA) Venus Express craft found something they did not expect. The planet apparently has an ozone layer. Don't plan to go there and take any deep breaths yet, though. The layer is a lot less dense than that of Earth.

From the article:
Speaking of the international team's find, Hakan Svedhem, ESA project scientist for the Venus Express mission, said: "This ozone detection tells us a lot about the circulation and the chemistry of Venus's atmosphere.

"Beyond that, it is yet more evidence of the fundamental similarity between the rocky planets, and shows the importance of studying Venus to understand them all." Warning: stories have mature content.
