The Atmosphere of Venus Is More Terrifying Than We Imagined
- Scientists have long suspected that all planets with an atmosphere also have an electric field, generated by a layer of charged particles in the upper atmosphere called the ionosphere. But so far, on every planet where weâ€™ve looked, including our own, weâ€™ve been unable to detect it. The working theory is that these electric fields are very, very weakâ€”Earthâ€™s is thought to be in the range of one to two volts.
