Upper Elementary Science - II
3.3 Planet Venus - An Inner Planet

In mythology, Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty. In Greek, her name was Aphrodite.

How much would you weigh on Venus? Because Venus and the Earth are about the same size, you would weigh almost the same on either planet. If you weighed 70 pounds on Earth you would weigh 63 pounds on Venus.

Venus is a hostile planet. Its thick cloud cover makes it impossible to see the surface, and traps much of the Sun's heat. This extra heat gives Venus the hottest average temperature of all the planets.

In many ways, Venus is similar to the Earth. It has active volcanoes, "venusquakes", mountains, and valleys. The major difference is that the atmosphere of Venus makes the planet far too hot for life. Venus has no moons.
