Why I chose this planet

I chose this planet because it seemed cool and I have never really researched about this planet

Space Exploration

On March 1, 1966 the Venera 3 Soviet space probe crash-landed on Venus, becoming the first spacecraft to reach the surface of another planet. Its sister craft Venera 2 had failed due to overheating shortly before completing its flyby mission.

How many spacecrafts visited Venus

Visited over 20 times

Spacecrafts VIsited planet

NASA'sMariner 2 (in 1962)

The spacecraft made a number of discoveries about the planet and marked another first by measuring the solar wind, a constant stream of charged particles flying outward from the sun.

Pioneer Venus (in 1978)

Took pictures of Venus and overheated I believe

Venera 9 (1975)

First to land on Venus


Venus is the hottest world in the solar system. Although Venus is not the planet closest to the sun, its dense atmosphere traps heat in a runaway version of the greenhouse effect that warms Earth

Venus takes 243 Earth days to rotate on its axis, by far the slowest of any of the major planets, and because of this sluggish spin, its metal core cannot generate a magnetic field similar to Earth's.

The Venus Express spacecraft, which the European Space Agency launched in 2005, intriguingly found evidence of lightning on the planet. This lightning is unique from that found on the other planets in the solar system, in that it is not associated with water clouds. Instead, on Venus, the lightning is associated with clouds of sulfuric acid. Scientists are excited by these electrical discharges, because they can break molecules into fragments that can then combine with other fragments in unexpected ways.
