Caption: Surface of Venus. Computer illustration of a view across the rocky surface of the planet Venus, showing clouds of sulphuric acid obscuring the Sun. Venus lies around 108 million kilometres from the Sun, around two-thirds of the Earth-Sun distance, and is slightly smaller than Earth. It has the hottest planetary surface in the solar system, with temperatures of nearly 500 degrees Celsius since its dense carbon dioxide atmosphere traps the Sun's heat. The surface atmospheric pressure is around 90 times that on Earth.
