Venus sulfur clouds mystery solved by computer model

Scientists using new computational methods have come up with a new insight into the potential workings of the complex atmosphere of Venus.

Venus is shrouded in thick clouds made up mostly of sulfuric acid. These clouds reflect most of the sunlight shining on the planet, making it the brightest object in the sky after the sun and moon. However, spacecraft and Earth-based observations have also detected an unknown absorber of ultraviolet light present in the atmosphere.
