Summary

Summary

Space technology has made it possible to view Venus through its cloudy veil. What seemed to be similar to Earth was revealed to be a planet deadly to human life. Venus is full of volcanic activity, it rains sulfuric acid and has a much heavier atmospheric pressure than Earth. However, the history written on the surface of this planet could provide a key to Earth's warmer future.
