View of the Golubkina crater on Venus

April 20, 2006
Golubkina crater on Venus is 34 kilometres in diameter. Studying the number and size of craters on Venus proves that the surface of the planet is only 500 million years old. Scientists believe that some kind of volcanic catastrophe, 500 million years ago, spilled molten lava across the entire surface of the planet destroying all the older craters.
