Scientists examined the Venusian atmosphere and found out that above the clouds the temperature is about 13oC, in contrast, at the surface of Venus the temperature gets as high as 465oC. It is believed that the principle cause of the extreme surface temperature is the consequence abundant carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. Scientists concluded that Venusian atmosphere undergoes greenhouse effect. In essence, the heat delivered from the Sun enter the atmosphere and is radiated out, then again, it does not leave the atmosphere due to its heavy clouds that impede it from such. For this reason, Venus’ surface temperature is higher than that on Mercury – higher than any other planet! – leaving no chance of life.
Mercury The planet Mercury, named after the Roman God of Thievery, has an incredible grey surface, littered with craters. Whilst it may lack an environment, pulverised dust roams across its massive stretches of grey fields, and rocky cavities form the land of mercury, resulting in a lack of any possibility of
Venus has an atmosphere of about 96.5 percent carbon dioxide. Nitrogen is present at around 3.5%. Argon, neon, helium and carbon monoxide are also present, as well as other compounds and elements. Because of this, the atmosphere of Venus has an atmospheric pressure that is much heavier than that of earth--over 90 times heavier. The atmospheric closest to the surface of the
Because of the atmosphere being so dense, it mostly consisting of carbon dioxide and small amounts of nitrogen. With the atmosphere containing large amounts of CO2, along with thick clouds of sulfur dioxide, it causes one of the strongest greenhouse effect in our solar system, making temperatures sky-rocket to at least 735 K. That's hotter than Mercury is! Studies have shown that Venus may have been like Earth and that there was substantial quantities of liquid water on the surface, but after a period of 600 million years to a billion years, the runaway greenhouse effect came to be present after the original water evaporated, generating those gases. The surface of Venus is isothermal, meaning that the temperature remains constant between day and night but also between the equator and the
Venus has a very dramatic climate, it's atmosphere contains many greenhouse gasses and is the hottest planet in our solar system, despite the fact that it is further from the sun than Mercury. The atmosphere of Venus is mostly
Not to mention that,Venus has a record of 20 successful explorations and visits. There have no reports of life found on Venus.Venus’s composition is 96% carbon dioxide 3% nitrogen and 1% smaller amounts of other gases. Venus’s appearance looks identical to the inside of a volcano; the surface is very bumpy, is covered by lava, and has several volcanoes. And like any other surface of a volcano’s area there are craters along the surface of Venus.
The surface of Mercury bares a strong resemblance to that of Earth's moon. It is a rocky, crater-filled surface, comprised of dark "pulverized dust" and rocks ranging in size from pebbles to boulders. Due to these observations, it is concluded that Mercury is a geologically inactive planet and
There are many planets in the galaxy, one of them is the planet Venus. Venus is really hot,and humid.If you were able to travel to Venus it would be really really hot. The planets acttule tempature is more than 800˚F.That's is really hot!!! It takes the sun about two hundred and 43 days to rotate around Venus. The planet Venus spins really slow whikle we spin a little faster.If you lived in Venus you be really young. Venus is covered by thick, rapidly spinning clouds that trap the surface heat. The planet Venus is the second planet closest to the sun. That must mean it is one of the hottest planet. Venus from the sun is about 108,208,930 km. The surface tempature on Venus is 730˚K. That is really cool!! The moon orbits Venus 0 times.
1993). One thing that differs from Earth is that there is no water liquid on the Venusian surface.
Paragraph 1 This book is called "Far-Out Guide To Venus", it was written by Mary Kay Carson. You can tell that the book is non-fiction because it is written based on a real planet. The book contains information about the planet Venus researched by real scientist. The book also includes pictures of Venus taken by space probes (a spacecraft designed to orbit and gather information about objects in our solar system). The author also has evidence to prove that the information they put in the book are true, like pictures of space probes that has traveled Venus, books and sites where they found the information.
The planet is likewise a slow rotator, with a 243-day long Venusian day and a circle around the sun at 225 days. Its environment is thick and contains Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Nitrogen (N). In addition, Venus has no rings or moons.
Hello this is Lainey Johnson from Belle Plaine News broadcasting about Margot, her classmates, and how hard it is to see the Sun from Venus. Margot moved to Venus from Earth only five years before. Now, for the people living on Venus, the Sun only comes up about once every seven Earth years. In their case, it has been raining for seven straight years on Venus. So when the sun came out Margot unfortunately missed the sunrise because of her classmates.
Venus choked in smog, a crushing atmosphere of carbon dioxide. Venus, shaped by volcanoes. Venus, where day and night it’s always 480 degrees Celsius yet no Sun ever penetrates these poisonous skies. Venus is a puzzle, it rotates just once in 243 days, yet clouds race around the planet in
My First Mission Log It’s my first mission, I’m leaving for the mission in one week and I’m preparing myself to go out and survive in space. Im traveling from Earth to Venus, Venus to Jupiter, Jupiter to Pluto, and lastly Pluto back to Earth. I’m packing Freeze Dried Foods, Fuel
The rest is made up of nitrogen at 3.5%, carbon monoxide, argon, helium and neon. The planet has a surface temperature of 735K (462 C or 836.6 F). This temperature is higher than what the Muggles use for sterilization. The surface of Venus could be compared to Muggle Hell. There is a thick layer of sulfur dioxide clouds around the planet. These clouds contain sulfuric acid and they also reflect 90% of sunlight. The surface of Venus is not well lit for this reason. 85 m/s winds at the top of the clouds circle the planets every 4-5 Earth days. The highest point on Venus is Maxwell Montes, which is also the coolest, at 655 K (380 C or 716
