Caption: Greenhouse effect on Venus. Computer artwork of the surface of Venus, showing how the heat from the Sun is trapped in the planet's atmosphere. Venus has a thick, acidic atmosphere, which traps the heat of the Sun (a runaway greenhouse effect). This makes Venus the hottest planet in the solar system, with surface temperatures reaching over 400 degrees Celsius.
