Venus-Sometimes Called Earth's Twin-is very similar to our home planet. However, nobody from Earth would ever be able to survive on that planet! At a scorching 462°C, Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system-and poisonous clouds of gas surround it. How do we know all this?

Spacecraft from Earth have visited Venus. Learn about the amazing missions, the dedicated scientists who plan them, and more far-out facts about the second planet from the Sun.
