Vênus Ribhinn Venera


Upsystem: Mercury, Downsystem: The Moon

Venus is the closest planet in the solar system to Earth's size and gravity - but the atmosphere is much heavier and hotter. The pressure on the surface is the equivalent of being 1km underwater on Earth - and the temperature is hot enough to melt lead.

So visiting features on the surface would be challenging. However, 50 km above the ground the pressure and temperature are quite nice.

Venus was often named twice by early cultures - as it would appear in the morning and evening. Names tend to be along the lines of "Bright", "Beautiful".

Venus has 1,973 named features from 188 nations/peoples.
