Venus has Ozone Layer

Venus has surprised us all with the presence of a massive Ozone Layer.

Yep, the discovery was done by few scientist who were trying to observe other galaxies. The light from the other stars were fainter than expected. Further research proved the reason behind the so-called faint light is due to the ozone layer of Venus which was obviously absorbing some UV lights.

The discovery has ignited the scientist as well as sky watchers because like Earth and Mars, now Venus have a confirmed Ozone layer.

They suspect life might have been possible in Venus once upon a time as they believe with MARS.

The thin layer, which is hundred of times less dense than the Earth’s, was discovered by the European Space Agency’s Venus Express craft, researchers report in the journal Icarus.

The paper’s lead author Franck Montmessin, of the LATMOS atmospheric research centre in France, explained that Venus’ ozone layer sits 100km up; about three times the height of our own.

The ozone – a molecule containing three oxygen atoms – formed when sunlight broke down carbon dioxide in the Venusian atmosphere to form oxygen molecules.

On Earth, ozone, which absorbs much of the Sun’s harmful UV-rays preventing them reaching the surface, is formed in a similar way.

However, this process is supplemented by oxygen released by carbon dioxide-munching microbes.

Scientist believe the new finding will help them in observing and refine the scenarios for the detection of life on other worlds.
