I think that Venus is a very interesting planet. Something I learned that is really interesting about Venus is that it has a very large and dense atmosphere. It has many different gasses that build up a lot of pressure and hold the heat in. Venus is hotter than Mercury. But Mercury is closer to the Sun? Why would Venus be hotter? Well, it is because Mercury has no atmosphere but Venus has the most dense or thickest atmosphere. So, with such a large and dense atmosphere when heat goes in, it never comes out. So Venus is making a greenhouse effect similar to ours except it is a lot more intense.
