    It might have something to do with the fact that Venus is 30,000,000 miles closer to the sun. There. I have just saved Europe countless millions of wasted Euros. Can I get a thank you?

    Then again...I'll bet that sonofabitch KKKarl Rove and his pet TEH BU$HITLER secretly flew a squadron of SUVs and Halliburton probes to Venus! Those f***ing Neocon BASTARDS!!!!!!!

    If this has an interest for science, not bad.

    Mercure : nearest planet from the Sun, but : temperature from 430 °C (celsius)maximum to -170 °C (celsius) minimum : so, your so birght theory "it's near the Sun" is quite destroyed here : Mercure has far far lower temperatures than Earth, and is all the same far far near the Sun than Earth.

    So, Venus can be hotter than Earth with other reasons than your theory.

    ;)

    Hey Padish,
    How about that landing craft Europe sent to Mars in a hurry to beat the U.S. Have you guys found it yet? I remember a lot of boasting about how Europe beat the U.S. to Mars. Are you sure it was sent to the correct planet?

    The U.S. has received incredible photos taken by the 2 NASA rovers that successfully made it to the surface of Mars.

    WTF , Why do you change and avoid the topic ?

    Europe already launch space sondes. (Cassini-Huygens, example).

    If you believe that's our goal in the life is to beat USA even on Moon and mars, good for you.

    The Polish just announced a mission to the Sun.
    In the press conference the question, “Won’t the vehicle burn up before it arrives” was ask. The Polish spokesmen’s reply was, “No, we have that all figured out. Our scheduled launch is set so that the vehicle arrives at night”.

    I really never thought Venus was hot. Or Serena as far as that goes.

    Actually since it has zero atmosphere (it is very small, and has no magnetic feild, so the solar wind blasted it off), the half that is facing away from the sun is directly exposed to the Abosulute Zero temperature of space, making it really damn cold.

    American probes have charted much of the surface of Venus with radar. There's no evidence that anything ever existed there except rock and poisonous gas.
