A climate simulation to determine the temperature at the surface of Venus during its early life was done, using data from a space probe (Magellan), orbital parameters and hypothesis like athmospheric composition, solar spectral irradiance, ocean volume,… It concludes that Venus could have had moderate/habitable surface temperatures – an average of 11°C to 56°C – during its early life, up to 715 million years after its formation.
