BSL Astronomy Glossary - Venus - definition

Definition: The second closest planet to the sun, Venus is one of the rocky planets in our solar system. It has an extremely thick, gaseous atmosphere of carbon dioxide (CO2), which densely surrounds the planet. This creates a heavy atmospheric pressure on the planet, indicated in the BSL sign by puffing out the cheeks.
