New Evidence about Venus’s Magnetic Field

Venus does not generate an internal magnetic field. This makes it a rarity amongst the planets. This means that Venus does not have a magnetosphere that protects it but the Venus environment does exhibit a number of similarities with magnetic fields of planets such as Earth. Now there is new evidence for a magnetic reconnection [...]
