Joaquina giuliano -venus

  1. 1.  VENUS, the second planet from the sun, is often referred to as one of the “ inner planets”.  It’s one of the first FOUR planets closest to the sun.
  2. 2.  In astronomy mythology, Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty.  In Greek, her name was Aphrodite.
  3. 3.  Like the Earth, Venus has an Atmosphere.  It is far thicker than that of the Earth, making it difficult for modern science to penetrate.
  4. 4.  Venus is in many ways Earth's sister planet. It is almost identical in size, chemistry, gravity and density as the Earth.  Venus has volcanoes, mountains and sand, just like Earth.
  5. 5.  Venus does not have an ozone layer. The ultraviolet radiation from the Sun finds ITS way directly into Venus' atmosphere. Over many years a billion of this radiation has slowly broken down water molecules into Hydrogen and Oxygen.
  6. 6.  Instead of the Sun rising in the east and setting in the west, the Sun on Venus would appear to rise in the west and set in the east.  Moons: Venus has no moon.
