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.
