The Orbit

Venus is the second planet closest to the sun, and it has no moons. Venus takes 225 Earthen days for the planet to complete a year around the sun. Interestingly enough, Venus has the slowest day than any other planet in the solar system, Venus takes 243 Earthen days just to complete on day rotation once around! That's longer then how how it take for Venus to finish an orbit around the sun!

The Physical Structure

Venus is covered in hot spewing volcanoes that are very much active. The temperatures on Venus reach 870 degrees Fahrenheit (465 degrees Celsius), probes that are sent there by scientists can only stay working for only a few hours until they are melted by the intense heat.

The Layers


But, Venus is sometimes considered Earth's twin sister because they are so alike in size, mass, density, gravity and composition. Venus's core is consisted of a metallic iron, and the rocky molten mantle is next. Finally, the crust, it is made up of mostly basalt; a dark colored rock that is usually form by lava when it cools and hardens.

Greek History

Venus was named after the Greek goddess Aphrodite; the goddess of love and beauty. This was probably because Venus was the brightest object in the sky other than the sun or the moon.
