About the same size as Earth, Venus is a planet covered with extensive plains featuring high volcanic mountains and vast ridged plateaus. While the surface rotates slowly, the winds blow at hurricane force, sending clouds completely around the planet every five days. Venus' extreme temperatures and acidic clouds make it an unlikely place for life as we know it.
