Some scientists think that the surface of the moon may be covered with rocks from Venus, and if this is proven, it may facilitate the study of the hot planet, and astronomers at Yale University assume that asteroids and comets that collided with Venus may have caused parts of its surface to fly out and spread them in various directions billions of years ago. And, perhaps some of these meteorites have reached the Earth or the Moon, providing scientists with samples of Venus, which a recent study showed the possibility of a life form being present on it, according to CNET.
The study was published in the Planetarian Science Journal, and its authors confirmed that it is based largely on hypotheses, but two astronomers from the research team emphasized the importance of the research, as it may be possible for us to obtain materials from Venus without having to travel to it..
“The moon may be a suitable place to preserve these ancient rocks, and we think that any fragments that arrived from Venus to Earth will be buried deep, due to geological activity, and these rocks will be better preserved on the moon,” Samuel Cabot, co-author of the study, said in a statement. .
The predictions of this study are not entirely dependent on luck, as scientists believe that the gravitational pull of the Earth and the Moon is sufficient to attract meteorites from Venus..
Gregory Laughlin, co-author of the study, said in the statement: Any ancient sample of Venus will be a wealth of information, and the history of Venus is closely linked to important topics in planetary science, including the flow of asteroids and comets in ancient times, the history of the atmosphere of planets near the sun and abundance Liquid water.“
