Weather on Venus

On Venus the weather is very, very hot & dry. You could boil an egg on the suface of Venus but it would burn up . There is also acid rain made of sulphuric acid, chorine, & fluorine. But the acid rain evaporates before it hits the ground. That's how hot it is on Venus.

Exploration to Venus

There was alot of explorations on Venus. They are: The Mariner 2, The Pioneer Venus, The Soviet Verna 7, The Vernera 9, The Magellan, The Mariner 10, & the Venus Express.

Human Colony on Venus

I don't think a human colony would survive on Venus because there is no oxygen. But not only it has no oxygen, it is way to hot for us to live. If Venus could burn up an egg, just imagine what it could do to us humans.
