Last month, a new sense of hope arrived in the form of a study, that is, Venus may have been habitable, and it was the home of the “liquid water” is between 2 to 3 billion years old.

Now, those hopes have seemingly been dashed, and the water is replaced by lava, according to a new study.

In the new study, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, suggesting that it is the second planet in the solar system was filled with lava. It is only after she is carried out of Venus’ Ovda Region of the highland plateau, which is what they are thinking is that it is made out of basaltic lava.

“We know so little about Venus’ surface,” said study co-author, Allan Treiman, in a statement. “If, in the Ovda Region of the highlands are made up of basalt rock on the shore of Venus, it was probably pressed up to their present heights due to the internal forces, if any, as the mountains, which are a result of tectonic movement of the Earth.”

The team found that the current, as seen in the Ovda Region of the highland plateau, it was “not of granite, as was to be expected from the location, to increase the likelihood that it was made of basalt.

“The high-altitude region of the Ovda Fluctus is continuous with the lower portions of: the change in radar characteristics is not to represent different flows,” the study abstract states. “The contours of the Ovda Fluctus-flow lobes have fractal dimensions are consistent with a basaltic pahoehoe lavas. The margin of Ovda Fluctus at a substantially higher elevation than the centre, which is a characteristic as seen in a basalt flow on the Earth, but not in the more silica‐rich flows.”

Skip to the day of Venus, which is called “Earth’s evil twin,” it has a very harsh climate, with a surface temperature of 864 degrees Fahrenheit.

In the new study, Treiman and other researchers to follow, which was presented at the European Planetary Science Congress last month. In this study, indicated Venus could have had the “liquid water” is between 2 to 3 billion years, a “dramatic transformation,” it started to happen more than 700 million years ago, which completely reformed the planet and it plunged about 80 per cent of it.

The dramatic transformation that has led to a mass explosion of carbon dioxide emissions on the planet are between 700 million and 750 million years ago, an event in which researchers say may be linked to the volcanic activity on the planet.
