Magnetosphere

Even tho venus is similar in size to the Earth and has a similarly-sized iron core, Venus' magnetic field is much weaker than the Earth's due to Venus' slow rotation. ​

Venus

Venus

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

Similar in structure and size to Earth, Venus spins slowly in the opposite direction from most planets. 

Its thick atmosphere traps heat in a runaway greenhouse effect, making it the hottest planet in our sol...

Size and distance

Size and distance

With a radius of 3,760 miles (6,052 kilometers), Venus is roughly the same size as Earth — just slightly smaller.

From an average distance of 67 million miles (108 million kilometers), Venus is 0.7 astronomical units away from the Sun. One astronomical unit (abbreviated as AU), is the dista...

Surface

Surface

Froms space, Venus is bright white because it is covered with clouds that reflect and scatter sunlight. At the surface, the rocks are different shades of grey, like rocks on Earth, but the thick atmosphere filters the sunlight so that everything would look orange if you were standing on Venus.

Formation

Formation

When the solar system settled into its current layout about 4.5 billion years ago, Venus formed when gravity pulled swirling gas and dust together to form the second planet from the Sun. 

Like its fellow terrestrial planets, Venus has a central core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

Orbit and rotation

Orbit and rotation

Venus rotation and orbit are unusual in several ways, Venus is one of just two planets that rotate from east to west.

 Only Venus and Uranus have this "backwards" rotation. It completes one rotation in 243 Earth days — the longest day of any planet in our solar system, even longer than a wh...

Atmosphere

Atmosphere

Venus atmosphere consists mainly of carbon dioxide, with clouds of sulfuric acid droplets

The thick atmosphere traps the Sun's heat, resulting in surface temperatures higher than 880 degrees Fahrenheit (470 degrees Celsius). The atmosphere has many layers with different temperatures. At the...

Structure

Venus is in many ways similar to earth in its structure. 

It has an iron core that is approximately 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) in radius. Above that is a mantle made of hot rock slowly churning due to the planet's interior heat. 

The surface is a thin crust of rock that bulges and...

Potential for life

Potential for life

No human has ever visited venus, but the spacecrafts taht have been sent to the surface of Venus do not last very long there. Venus' high surface temperatures overheat electronics in spacecraft in a short time, so it seems unlikely that a person could survive for long on the Venusian surface.

Magnetosphere

The main axix of Neptune's magnetic field is tipped over by about 47 degrees compared with the planet's rotation axis.

Like Uranus, whose magnetic axis is tilted about 60 degrees from the axis of rotation, Neptune's magnetosphere undergoes wild variations during each rotation because of thi...
