THE SECOND PLANET
IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the second planet in the solar system?

When you’re trying to decide the order of the planets in the solar system, one goes by how close they are to the surface of the Sun. Mercury is the first planet in the solar system, as it’s closest to the Sun. But what’s the second planet in the solar system? That title belongs to Venus.

Venus and Earth are almost identical when it comes to their size. But that’s about the only way the two are alike. Venus’ atmosphere is made up almost entirely of carbon dioxide and thick sulfuric clouds are present on its entire surface. This is one reason why people could never land on Venus, they simply wouldn’t survive. In addition to that, the temperature on Venus is about 430 degrees Celsius, which also makes it impossible for inhabitation. There is also extreme atmospheric pressure on Venus, which is about 92 times greater than the pressure found on Earth.

No one has even attempted to land on Venus. One reason for that is because it’s so close to the Sun, but another reason is because the environment is simply too harsh for a human to survive any more than a few minutes, if they could even survive that long. There have been some electronic probes and robotics that have landed on the second planet in the solar system but even these robots have only lasted for a few hours before being melted.

Venus is also the planet that’s closest to the Earth, which is the third planet in the solar system.
