Venus By: Mackenzie maxwell

Venus is very close in size to the Earth, just slightly smaller.

Size Comparison
Venus is considered Earths sister Planet

Venus possesses of very unusual orbitation. All of the other planets rotate counter clockwise, but Venus rotates clockwise.

Venus is the second planet from the sun and our closest planetary neighbor.

A day on Venus will last 243 Earth days

The everyday temperature on Venus is 864 degrees Fahrenheit. Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system.

Venus' surface includes many craters, volcanoes, mountains, and big lava plains.

Surface of Venus

You definitely don't want to be on the surface of Venus, because the temperature is so hot it can melt lead, and the atmosphere is so thick it will crush you.

Venus and the rest of the planets all formed at the same time from the same nebula 4.6 million years ago.

Venus broken down

Most astronomers feel that life is impossible to exist on Venus. Today, Venus is very hot, and the atmosphere is very thick. Venus' atmosphere is made up mostly of carbon dioxide.

Atmosphere

Venus is partially protected by a small and weak magnetic field, which blocks out the solar wind from the sun.

More than 20 missions to Venus have been successful.

High up in Venus' atmosphere, the air pressure and temperatures are at the point that they are very similiar to Earth.

Some scientists believe that their may be microbial life high up in the atmosphere of Venus.

Microbial life

Since the Sun's solar wind is constantly blowing on Venus, and Earth is "downwind" from Venus, it is very possible that microbial life is being blown from Venus to Earth, which may mean that Earth got its start from Venus.

For our legacy we used a microphone.

The microphone represents how our generation isn't afraid to speak out.
