Currently Venus is a glaringly bright "star" good to see in the early evening sky. In the moment you can see its calm, white gloss over the western horizon, dominating the twilight.
Knowledge about Venus are particularly interesting because this planet is similar to our earth, especially in the size. Nevertheless, it has mostly completely different properties that are not solely due to the lower sun distance. So what happened, that this in principle very similar worlds developed so far apart?
