How is Venus different to earth?

Question asked by: knowitall

Venus is different to planet earth in quite profound ways.

We focus, being alive, on the fact that Venus could surely not support life. This focusses us in on some massive differences between the two planets.

First up, Venus rotates extremely slowly compared to earth.

Venus is a planet almost unique in having no moons at all - why is this? We're not quite sure.

It also has a magnetic field that is almost non existent - not good for life! Of course the temperature means it is so dry and there is hardly any water.

There is extreme pressure on the surface and temperature, and the atmosphere is very dense with a run away greenhouse effect.
