Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Venus isn’t habitable — and it could be all Jupiter’s fault
Despite the romantic name, which was named after goddess of love and in Roman mythology, Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system with mean surface temperatures reaching 464 degrees Celsius, hot enough to vaporize lead. The planet orbits the sun in 225 days at around 72% of the sun-to-earth’s distance. It was born about the same time as Earth, 4.5 billion years ago. It is thought that the planet was orbiting the sun in an oval shape at a farther distance from the sun now. But about a billion years ago when the largest and most gravitationally influential planet in our solar system Jupiter moved closer to the sun, it also pushed Venus closer to the sun and also changed the orbit to almost circular, which made the planet too hot for any lifeforms to inhabit. So, Jupiter is to blame to make Venus unhabitable, according to a new study.
Enjoy reading the article and learn about our inner-neighbor planet.
