Venus could have been a paradise but turned into a hellscape. Earthlings, pay attention.
NASA/JPL 900 degrees Fahrenheit, crushing pressure, and acid clouds. Venus, what the hell happened? “Hellscape” is the most appropriate word to describe the surface of Venus, the second planet from the sun. At 900 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s the hottest planet in the solar system, thanks to an atmosphere that’s almost entirely made up of carbon dioxide. Clouds made of highly corrosive sulfuric acid are draped over a volcanic landscape of razor-sharp lava flows. Most crushingly, the pressure on the surface of Venus is about 92 times the pressure you’d feel at sea level on Earth. “It’s really almost entertainingly, comically horrible, like some sort of cosmic deity had a really really grumpy day and just went nope, I’m gonna ruin this planet,” Robin George Andrews, a science journalist and volcanologist, says. Andrews compares it to being in a pressure cooker a mile underwater. “If you stood on the surface, you would be pancaked and you would melt,” he says. Your eyes would explode due to the pressure — “which would be gross,” he adds. Yet as Andrews relays in his new book, Super Volcanoes: What They Reveal about Earth and the Worlds Beyond, some scientists suspect Venus was once much like Earth, with a liquid water ocean like the ones that support life on our planet. For Andrews, the question of what happened to ruin Venus is captivating and even existential. “Venus and Earth are planetary siblings,” he says. “They were made at the same time and made of the same stuff, yet Venus is apocalyptic and awful in every possible way. Earth is a paradise. So why do we have a paradise next to a paradise lost?” Scientists know something on Venus triggered truly catastrophic levels of climate change, causing surface temperatures to shoot up hundreds of degrees. But they don’t know exactly what. I spoke to Andrews for an episode of Unexplainable, Vox’s science podcast about unanswered questions, about what could have triggered Venus’s apocalypse and why we should care about it. Our conversation has been edited for length and clarity. The podcast episode also features a discussion with Sara Seager, an MIT planetary scientist and an expert on exoplanets, or planets outside our solar system, who raises the tantalizing question: What if, despite the cataclysm, something is still alive on Venus? The origins of Venus could tell us a lot about our place in the universe NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory-Caltech (left) and NASA (right) On the left, Venus as it is today. On the right, an artist’s interpretation of where oceans could have lain on the surface in the past. Brian Resnick You say the question of “what killed Venus” is existential. What makes it so? Robin George Andrews It really is a question about why are we here. Answering it will help us answer the question: How lonely are we? Are there other Venuses or Earths out there? If Earth is the odd one out, how lucky are we to exist? If Venus is the odd one out, then maybe we’re not so special after all. Brian Resnick So Earth and Venus started off as similar planets, and then went down different paths. You want to know what path is more common out there in the cosmos? Robin George Andrews When you hear in the news that scientists have discovered an Earth-like exoplanet, they might as well be saying, we found a Venus-like exoplanet. We don’t know if this is like a habitable world by our human, surface-dwelling standards, or if it’s gone through this sort of apocalyptic climate change like Venus. A good way to work out what may be more common in the cosmos is to study Earth and Venus, because they are siblings. “We don’t know how often it is that volcanoes decide to trash the planets they’re on” Brian Resnick How do scientists know, or suspect, Venus used to be more pleasant, habitable even? Robin George Andrews So even though Venus today looks and is apocalyptic in every meaning of the word, probes have looked at its atmosphere and found there’s a lot of “heavy water” in the atmosphere. Heavy water is exactly what it sounds like. The water we’re used to, this classic H2O, which is found commonly everywhere on Earth, is a more common type of water throughout the cosmos. Heavy water just kind of switches out that hydrogen for something called deuterium, which is like a heavier version of hydrogen. Brian Resnick What does finding heavy water mean? Robin George Andrews If you measure how much heavy water exists somewhere, you can make a reasonable guess as to how much classic water there is or was on that planet. It suggests that there once was a lot of classic water on Venus, at least an ocean’s worth of water on Venus. If that water existed in liquid form, what are the odds that Venus was habitable at some point? It’s not unlikely, even though today it looks impossible. Brian Resnick How long ago must this have been, this habitable Venus? Robin George Andrews I think there is a possibility that water was always steam, and it might have never been liquid water. But if it was, then it could have been habitable for billions of years. Maybe right up until the last billion years. Brian Resnick So that’s what we’re talking about when we say Venus used to be “alive.” What do we mean by “killed”? Robin George Andrews Death, in this case, is runaway climate change. Absolutely irreversible, world-ending climate change. The average temperature of the planet shot up by something like several hundred degrees Fahrenheit. It really sort of cooked itself to death. Suspect No. 1 for the death of Venus: The sun NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory Plasma spewing out of the surface of the sun. Brian Resnick So the question, I imagine, is how Venus cooked itself. Robin George Andrews There’s kind of two leading theories as to what killed Venus. Option No. 1 is the sun. From what we know of our sun and other stars, when they’re kind of in their teenage years, they get hyper-excitable, and they get hotter and brighter quite quickly. If the sun actually gets brighter and hotter too quickly, even though you might have that water sitting on the surface, the sun can boil it off. And that is a fate that lots of exoplanets, or planets outside our galaxy, are presumed to have gone through. Brian Resnick And once Venus’s water gets vaporized ... Robin George Andrews That steam is a greenhouse gas that would have kicked up the greenhouse gas effect. And then the carbon dioxide coming out of Venus’s embryonic volcanoes would have just sealed the deal. That could explain why we see Venus as it is today. Brian Resnick If this young, very excitable sun is what killed Venus, the Earth would have been fine, right? Robin George Andrews Yeah, the Earth would have been fine. It seems that Earth was spared the worst of it. Suspect No. 2 for the death of Venus: Tectonic plate-breaking volcanoes NASA/JPL-Caltech/Peter Rubin An artist’s depiction of a volcanically active Venus. Brian Resnick So that’s one suspect in our whodunit. What is the other suspect? Robin George Andrews The other suspect just happens to be my favorite thing: volcanoes. Brian Resnick How could your fave volcanoes kill a planet? Robin George Andrews Two hundred and fifty-two million years ago, Earth experienced its worst mass extinction, something called the Great Dying. At least 90 percent of all life was wiped out, and the primary suspects were these sort of volcanic fissures that opened up in Siberia. It produced a continent-sized flood of lava that took about two million years to erupt. So it causes giant explosions and also unleashed all these greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and it created a global warming effect that raised the temperature by like a dozen degrees [Celsius]. That caused 90 percent of all the life on Earth to die. Earth had to kind of reset itself. And the idea is, well, what if that happened on Venus, but worse? Brian Resnick That could kill the planet? Robin George Andrews If you just have one [Great Dying-scale] eruption, it might be okay, because Venus had plate tectonics. Plate tectonics is essentially a planet’s thermostat. Brian Resnick Plate tectonics — that’s how continents kind of float around and smoosh into each other. How do those act like a thermostat? Robin George Andrews Carbon dioxide can get soaked up in the ocean, and that filters down to these tectonic plates. If tectonic plates dive down beneath each other, then you’re burying carbon [and slowing the greenhouse effect]. Brian Resnick Okay, but how do you break this carbon-burying system? Robin George Andrews You have two of these epic, Great Dying-like eruptions at the same time. That will immediately trigger quite an intense period of global warming. And the oceans will just start to boil off. Now, plate tectonics could bury carbon for a while. But if you boil off your oceans, that carbon dioxide has nothing to dissolve into. And if you get rid of that water, plate tectonics itself shuts down. If you dehydrate [tectonic plates], you make them brittle — they can’t bury the carbon anymore. That’s essentially game over. If you break plate tectonics you’ve broken the world. The scientific jury is still out JAXA / ISAS / DARTS / DAMIA BOUIC Venus’s clouds captured in infared. Brian Resnick So we have our two suspects here. We have the sun and we have massive eruptions on Venus that broke Venus. Which one should we sentence here? Robin George Andrews The volcanos seem more likely because we can see how that’s happened on Earth — just to a slightly lesser extent. But if this was put into a court of law, they would both be presumed not guilty, just because there isn’t a telltale bit of evidence yet. Brian Resnick So how do we solve this mystery? Robin George Andrews There’s basically a fleet of missions that is going to unravel the geologic makeup of Venus today. If it looks bone-dry and it was always bone-dry, then maybe the sun did it, because it’s been dehydrated for a long time. But if it looks like there’s still some dehydration going on, that means you still have water somewhere. If Venus was still kind of soggy on the inside, and it’s still kind of belching water out, the volcanoes probably killed Venus. Brian Resnick Could the Earth pull a Venus one day? Robin George Andrews [Laughs.] Yeah, it could. Let’s not panic — I mean, these sorts of eruptions are like millions of years in timescales. So it’s not like no one would see this coming and we’d instantly be doomed. But it could happen. And the question is: Is it normal for a planet to have just one of these really epic, game-changer eruptions at one time? Or is it just a fluke? The fact that no one knows the answer to this is weirdly, perversely exciting to me. We don’t know how often it is that volcanoes decide to trash the planets they’re on. Brian Resnick People sometimes bring up Venus in the context of climate change. It’s an example of how bad a planet can become when greenhouse gases start to accumulate in an atmosphere. Could we humans potentially be the volcano? Robin George Andrews The pace in which we’re putting carbon dioxide into the sky is worse than what was happening during the Great Dying, in terms of the amount of carbon per year. Brian Resnick But we would need to keep this up for millions of years to match, right? Robin George Andrews Right. Brian Resnick This is weirdly reassuring that humans are unlikely to break the Earth completely. Robin George Andrews Yeah. I think it would be a terrible idea to pay homage to what happened to Venus.

Welcome to Work in Progress
Sign up for Derek’s newsletter here.I’ve been writing for The Atlantic for more than 13 years about economics, technology, politics, and culture. My newsletter, Work in Progress, is about all those things, with a special focus on the future of work—how the changing nature of our jobs is shaping life, politics, and society—and the future of progress: How we solve the most important problems in America and on the rest of the planet.I can’t promise I’m going to get everything right. But I promise that I’ll try to put evidence over ideology in every piece. And I promise to approach every subject with a 9 a.m. mindset. Let me tell you what I mean.When I wrote my first article for The Atlantic, in 2009, I truly had no idea what I was doing. I had been an intern in our communications department for several months when an editor of the website asked me if I wanted to try writing about economics. To this day, I don’t know why he asked me. I wanted to tell him: Absolutely not. I was generally averse to anything that looked like math. I thought economics was turgid, complicated, awful stuff, and I let them know. I went on to overshare that when I read The Washington Post, the only section I regularly tossed aside was Business. To write for The Atlantic was a dream. To write about economics felt mildly nightmarish. I took the job anyway.The typical day was something like this. I would wake up in the morning in a state of mild panic, knowing bupkis about my beat. My head was filled embarrassingly big dumb questions. Why did recessions happen? How do you create a job? How do economies grow and shrink? What did the unemployment rate even mean?Every day, I’d arrive at work at 9 a.m., desperately curious and unfathomably ignorant about some topic in the news—say, subprime loans. For several frantic hours, I’d read articles, call people, read articles, call more people. Then in the afternoon, I’d write for an audience of one: me, from 9 a.m. I wrote to explain the world to my (barely) past self. To my astonishment, people read what I wrote. They liked the stupid analogies, the movie and sports metaphors, and my habit of giving things names. I became a business editor, then a columnist, and finally a staff writer.I’ve learned a few things over the past 13 years. When something doesn’t make sense to you, it probably doesn’t make sense to a million readers. When something seems kind of interesting to you, it’s probably kind of interesting to a million readers. The big dumb questions hanging around in our heads aren’t actually dumb. Those questions are the seeds for the best journalism. Most people wander through life feeling quietly curious and confused about the state of things. I’m very lucky. My job is to notice when I’m curious, and to notice when I’m confused, and to turn those noticings into words, and to hope that people enjoy reading the crystallization of a quietly shared curiosity.This newsletter is about mysteries in the news. When I think about the articles I’m most proud of, they all ask a version of the same question: Why are things happening the way they’re happening, and what does it mean for the future? I especially plan to focus on two words in this newsletter’s title—the future of work; and human progress in science, technology, happiness, and beyond. Nobody really knows what the future of work is. Nobody really knows how to accelerate human progress. I’m not interested in these topics because I’m confident I have the answers. I’m interested in them because they’re important mysteries.Thanks for reading. But please don’t just read. Respond, and disagree, and point out my confusions, and add clarity, and help me make sense of the world. Work in Progress is, well, just that.

Welcome to The Good Word
Sign up for Caleb’s newsletter here.I’ve been writing and editing crossword puzzles since I was a teenager, for publications ranging from BuzzFeed to The New York Times. I worked at the Oxford English Dictionary for three summers. Placed in a few spelling bees here and there. I promise I’m not sharing this to bait you into going back in time and bullying me. It may come as no surprise that I love the English language very much. And now I’ll be proselytizing my love weekly with this newsletter, taking one answer from the previous week of Atlantic crossword puzzles and unpacking what makes it so fascinating to me.At its best, a crossword puzzle is a snapshot of language as it’s currently being used—a linguistic freeze-frame of what people are talking about and how they’re talking about it.Of course, in the real world, people don’t go around saying “oreo” or “ere” quite as often as they do within the puzzle grid. But as anyone who has tried to make a crossword can attest, you gotta glue the good stuff together with something, and to me, oreo is common enough, especially in Double Stuft, frozen, or milk-dipped form (but not those new novelty flavors, like cheesecake or whatever). But that’s a whole other story.The point is: People who make puzzles call words like oreo and ere “fill”—the stuff you use to glue together the cool answers—the words or phrases you, as a constructor, have always wanted to see in a puzzle for some reason. These Cool Answers, we crossword constructors call a “seed entry,” or just “seed.”So every week I’ll rant about a seed: what it means, where it comes from, how it got here … whatever drew me to enshrine this bit of language in the grid. Despite my chichi credentials, I am no language expert. Dial your expectations back from Expert to Fanboy. This will be more love letter than term paper. That means if I’m wrong about something, which I’m sure I will be, you can’t get mad, because … I just said so. But I do encourage you to write to me and explain why I’m wrong and/or stupid (and challenge you to do it with the fewest expletives possible). That way, I learn something new, and the situation doesn’t boil over into violence. Everyone wins.I expect the subject matter to be as elastic as the contents of the puzzles themselves, but I do have certain proclivities when it comes to filling a grid that I imagine will dominate the discourse. If the internet has given us anything besides brain disease, it’s the ability to communicate in more ways than ever, and with a record of that communication. I love watching language evolve, and I love the crossword’s ability to capture that evolution on a small scale. Since the crossword is so ephemeral (The Atlantic’s puzzle gets bigger and more difficult every weekday), I can use it to respond to the fascinating, ever-fluctuating lexicon of virtual communication. When I worked at the OED, part of my job was reading through new publications and highlighting new words and phrases, and new usages of old words and phrases. I imagine this newsletter will mostly hover around that theme.[Play the Atlantic Crossword]Finally: I will also probably write here and there about the process of making a crossword puzzle, which will be convenient for the dozens of you who have dreamed of making your own. The even better news is that the Atlantic Sunday puzzle is sourced from freelance contributors. Anyone with an idea for a puzzle can submit it, and I love working with first-time constructors. If you have any specific questions about how to make a puzzle, I’d be happy to address those as well. Who knows? Stick with me and you, too, could see your name immortalized in the bright, shiny pixels of the Atlantic crossword byline!In the meantime, look out for The Good Word every Monday morning, timed perfectly to be the icing on the cruciverbal cake after you finish the previous week of puzzles.
