The Wildest Weather in the Galaxy

5 posts in this topic

For decades, astronomers have been using telescopes to decipher atmospheric conditions on distant worlds. From 1,500-mph winds on Neptune to scorching heat waves on Venus and even worse weather on huge worlds beyond our solar system, you'll be glad you live on Earth.

Hot Crush

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 Sun’s radiation penetrates the cloudy atmosphere, the heat can’t escape back out to space. That’s no place for love. And with pressures that are 90 times that on Earth, any visitors would surely be crushed.
