Named after the goddess of love and beauty, Venus has a steamy demeanor. Boasting lead-melting temperatures of 890 degrees Fahrenheit (750 degrees Kelvin), Venus is considered the hottest planet in the solar system. Scientists attribute the high heat index to an extreme greenhouse effect. The atmosphere is composed of mainly carbon dioxide with clouds of sulfuric acid. So once the Sunís radiation penetrates the cloudy atmosphere, the heat canít escape back out to space. Thatís no place for love. And with pressures that are 90 times that on Earth, any visitors would surely be crushed.
