Venus: Hottest planet in the solar system.

One would wonder how possible it is for the closest planet to the sun in the solar system is not the hottest planet. Well, science, nature and geography has its own ideas when it comes to that.


Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system, its thick atmosphere is full of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide which traps heat, making it feel like a furnace on the surface and its clouds full of sulfuric acid.


Venus is the second planet from the sun and is the closest one to Earth. It is one of the four inner, terrestrial/rocky planets and is often called Earth’s twin because of its similarities in size and density.


Surface temperatures on Venus are about 900 degrees Fahrenheit (475 degrees Celsius) which is hot enough to melt lead.


A major difference about Venus from other planets is that Venus rotates on its axis backward compared to every other planet in the solar system meaning that the sun rises in the west and sets in the east, opposite to what we experience on Earth.
