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