Animation of planet Venus

Animation of planet Venus

Date: 02 December 2010
Copyright: ESA - C. Carreau

This animation shows Venus, a planet very similar to Earth in mass and size, but in reality an entirely different, exotic and inhospitable world. It is hidden below blankets of dense clouds of noxious gases, such as carbon dioxide and sulphuric acid, and presents the most dramatic greenhouse effect taking place in the Solar System. Venus Express is helping to find out how a planet apparently so similar to Earth evolved in a way so radically different.
