ADS BY GOOGLE


Venus is the planet closest to the Sun after mercury and, at the same time, the nearest to the land of those who are between it and the Sun. Venus is one of the smaller planets in the solar system, with a diameter of more than 12 thousand kilometers, just a little less than the Earth (having Jupiter, the largest of all almost 143 thousand kilometers in diameter). Venus is named for the Roman goddess representing love. Normally, Venus and Mars are the only two planets that can be easily viewed from Earth on a clear night and no clouds.
Some interesting facts about the Venus planet tell us that its orbital period, i.e., which on earth takes about 365 days and which is commonly known as a year, is more than 583 days, by which the year of Venus is almost twice as long as the Earth. In addition, a distinctive feature of Venus is that all orbits that make up the solar system, this planet is that more resembles a perfect circumference. Also, because of this particular move, Veus is the planet coming closer to Earth at some point of the movement of translation of both. Finally, to this we must add the fact that only Venus and Uranus are the planets that revolve, in the solar system, in the sense of the clock or the needles to West makes the rest in the opposite direction.
The atmosphere of Venus is that the development of any kind of life as we know it impossible. This is so since it consists almost in its entirety by carbon with a small presence of nitrogen dioxide. This makes the temperature of this planet is much higher than the Earth, easily reaching more than 400 degrees Celsius. This happens from the known greenhouse that we know today for our planet and which makes that different gases do not escape abroad if not which are retained in the interior of the atmosphere thus increasing the temperature. Pressure is also far superior to the Earth, more specifically 90 times higher.
