The comet Venus and its missing craters

the-comet-venus-and-its-missing-craters

Since the dawn of the Space Age, the planet Venus has been a proving ground for competing hypotheses in planetary science.

From the 1950s to 1970s, Venus was at the center of a blazing scientific controversy. In 1950, in the bestselling book Worlds in Collision, the scientific heretic Immanuel Velikovsky proposed that the planet Venus is a very recent addition to the inner solar system, and threatened the Earth as a terrifying comet.

In this episode of Space News, we explore why Venus' recent cometary origins explains at least one enduring mystery of the planet – its stunning absence of craters.

  1. In Response to Promoted Content: “The Secret Plan To Destroy Trump’s Administration” ? Really! There is no secret plan. Trump is the sole contributor, and by his tweets, the sole author of his own eminent destruction. He traffics in deception, purposely misleads, undermines free speech, seeks to mute the press and insults, or obstructs even those that seek truth. The only reason this fool has remained in office this long is due to a complicit Republican Party and those constituents that prefer to nourish hate and promote greed. One only needs to read every Trump tweet and take the time to fact check what he tweets or says to understand that this president serves only himself. Believe me, this man will throw you, this nation and even this beautiful planet under the bus with not so much as a wink and a tip of the hat.
