The Planet Venus

John Hagerty & Joseph Hatch

Why is Venus considered Earth's twin?

Venus is like Earth's twin because it is the same size, has an atmosphere, but yet is toxic. Acid rain is common, and NOTHING can live on there. Unfortunately, it is Earth's sister, not Earth's twin.

Venus' rotation and orbit

Strangely enough, Venus rotates UPSIDE DOWN!!! Did you know that Venus' year is shorter than its day? The day is about 243 Earth days, and the year is about 225 days.
