Venus is planet number two in our solar system, counted from the sun. Venus is often described as a sister planet to Earth due to the fact that the two planets roughly have the same size and mass. There are, however, also distinct differences between the two planets. The average temperature on Venus (surface) is 453 degrees celcius and the atmospheric pressure is 90 times higher than on Earth, factors making the planet uninhabitable for man.
