The volcanoes of Venus are still active today, with at least 37 areas showing recent activity, a new 3D model reveals. This simulation from the University of Maryland and the Institute of Geophysics at ETH Zurich shows the surface of Venus as being geologically alive.

These Venusian volcanoes form in clusters, potentially revealing details of activity taking place beneath the surface of our neighboring world.
