Venus : the planet second in order from the sun — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary, Urban Dictionary

Encyclopedia

Venus is the second planet from the Sun, orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days. The planet is named after Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty. After the Moon, it is the brightest natural object in the night sky, reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6, bright enough to cast shadows. Because Venus is an inferior planet from Earth, it never appears to venture far from the Sun: its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8°. Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, for which reason it has been known as the Morning Star or Evening Star. Venus is classified as a terrestrial planet and it is sometimes called Earth’s “sister planet” due to the similar size, gravity, and bulk composition. — Wikipedia

  • Looking for pieces of Venus? Try the moon
    on October 7, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    A growing body of research suggests the planet Venus may have had an Earth-like environment billions of years ago, with water and a thin atmosphere.

  • Venus might be habitable today, if not for Jupiter
    on September 30, 2020 at 12:51 pm

    Venus might not be a sweltering, waterless hellscape today, if Jupiter hadn't altered its orbit around the sun, according to new research.

  • Venus' ancient layered, folded rocks point to...
    on September 17, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Researchers has found that some of the oldest terrain on Venus, known as tesserae, have layering that seems consistent with volcanic activity. The finding could provide insights into the enigmatic planet's geological history.

  • Scientists discover volcanoes on Venus are still...
    on July 20, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    A new study identified 37 recently active volcanic structures on Venus. The study provides some of the best evidence yet that Venus is still a geologically active planet.

  • Atmospheric tidal waves maintain Venus'...
    on April 23, 2020 at 6:30 pm

    An international research team has revealed that the 'super-rotation' on Venus is maintained near the equator by atmospheric tidal waves formed from solar heating on the planet's dayside and cooling on its nightside.

  • Surprisingly little water has escaped to space...
    on November 13, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    On 13 November Moa Persson, Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) and Umeå University, will defend her doctoral thesis. Her thesis shows that only a small part of the historical water content on Venus has been lost to space over the past 4 billion years. This is much less than researchers previously thought.

  • A cosmic amethyst in a dying star
    on November 12, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    On Earth, amethysts can form when gas bubbles in lava cool under the right conditions. In space, a dying star with a mass similar to the Sun is capable of producing a structure on par with the appeal of these beautiful gems.

  • To survive asteroid impact, algae learned to hunt
    on October 30, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    Tiny, seemingly harmless ocean plants survived the darkness of the asteroid strike that killed the dinosaurs by learning a ghoulish behavior—eating other living creatures.

  • The implications of signs of life on Venus?
    on October 22, 2020 at 1:10 pm

    The planet Venus has arguably remained less captivating than, say, the legendary tennis star or, for that matter, the women's razor blade company—both of those Venuses have at least enjoyed ample airtime on cable TV.

  • NASA probe OSIRIS-REx 'boops' asteroid Bennu in...
    on October 21, 2020 at 8:24 am

    After a four-year journey, NASA's robotic spacecraft OSIRIS-REx briefly touched down on asteroid Bennu's boulder-strewn surface on Tuesday to collect rock and dust samples in a precision operation 200 million miles (330 million kilometers) from Earth.
