What Would it Be Like If You Lived On Venus?

“Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” This is a strange, popular statement that often confounds both speakers and listeners alike. Although we’re getting closer to understanding what life on Mars might be life, it’s natural to ask the next question: what would it be like to actually live on Venus?

Venus is the second planet from the sun in our solar system, followed by our beloved home planet, Earth. Venus is often called the twin planet of Earth, because if you were to look at both the planets together, they might appear quite similar, as both are almost the same size. If you look at the internal composition of the planet, you would see that Venus also has a metallic core surrounded by a rocky crust, just like Earth. Considering these things, one might think that Venus is just as good as Earth.

But is it? The answer might surprise you…

Check this video out and after a few minutes, you’ll know exactly what it would take to live on Venus.
