Planet Venus shares numerous characteristics with Earth. Consequently, the study of Venus could actually lead us to better comprehend our own planet. Yet the surface of our neighbor is far too hot and pressurized for human survival. So, if we’re ever to send a person toward the planet, a solution will be required. And, as it happens, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has given this a great deal of thought.

Venus’s atmosphere is largely composed of carbon dioxide, and also includes large concentrations of sulfuric acid. This environment retains energy derived from the Sun, leading the surface to warm up. As a result, Venus at ground level is among the most scorching areas of our Solar System.
