For the first time, scientists have obtained a full picture of Venus’s magnificent orbital ring.
The Parker Solar Probe spacecraft has captured the first full image of Venus’s orbital dust ring for NASA.
Astronomers had long believed the ring was there, but they didn’t get a complete picture.
The new image confirms that Venus is a group of microscopic dust particles orbiting the Sun in its orbit.
The presence of the dust cloud was first observed on NASA’s Helios spacecraft in the 1970s and was seen again between 2007 and 2014.
The secret of the dust ring is unknown
Scientists still think the source of the dust is up for debate.
The new research shows that the dust band is 10 percent more concentrated than the dust in the surrounding areas.
Space dust forms the building blocks of stars and planets. (TRT News)
