Hemispheric View of Venus
Venus is the second planet from the sun. Its named after the Roman Goddess of love and beauty. After the Moon it is the brightest natural object in the night sky. It orbits 224.7 Earth days. It has no natural satellite.
Venus is the terrestrial planet and is sometimes called “sister planet” of Earth because of their similar size, mass, proximity to the Sun and bulk composition. It is radically different from Earth in other respects.
Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system, even through mercury is closer to the sun.
Venus has the densest atmosphere of the terrestrial planets and it consist of more than 96% carbon dioxide. The atmosphere pressure on the surface of the planet is 92 times that of Earth’s. The temperature of the planet is 462C ; 863F. Venus does not seem any organic life to absorb carbon in biomass, nor it has no carbon cycle to put carbon into rocks. Venus is shrouded by an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of sulfuric acid, preventing its surface from the invisible lights. Venus’s surface is a dry desertscape interspersed with slab-like rocks and periodically refreshed by volcanism.
