    Balmy Venus Before Its Climate Changed

    NASA’s new climate model of ancient Venus shows a picture of a habitable world

NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies] calculated that the average surface temperature 2.9 billion years ago was about 50 degrees Fahrenheit…Old Venus would have orbited a sun about 30 percent dimmer…[but would have] baked in unearthly amounts of sunlight…Exactly when Venus overheated remains a mystery. Despite how hot and dry our solar system twin is today — Venus is about the same size as Earth, and possibly within the ‘Goldilocks zone’ of habitable worlds — the odds seem increasingly good that it may have had the right conditions for life…” click here for more
