The atmosphere of Venus (about 60 miles up iirc) is about the same temperature and pressure as Earth atmosphere at our sea level.
Unfortunately (for us) it has sulphuric acid clouds which limits the possibilities of life (for them and us).

Otherwise, The atmosphere of Venus is made up mainly of carbon dioxide.

I'd love to see Saturn explored next. Well, Titan, really. So we can understand more about its bodies of liquid!

If we could handle Jupiter's massive gravity effects, I think we should explore there next, especially some of the Jovian moons like Europa. Europa has large subsurface water oceans that might be conducive for the development of life.

Yet again, thanks to our partnership with The Space Store, one lucky winner will be walking away with:
  • (1) NASA JPL Perseverance Exploration Program Mission Patch
  • (1) NASA Mars Perseverance Landing Coin




To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is:

I'd love to see Neptune next. So much mystery, Why is it so dense?
Google gives:
"Just to give you some comparison, the density of water is 1 g/sm3. In other words, if you had a bathtub big enough, Neptune would sink into it. This is different for Saturn which has a density of less than 1. While Neptune sinks, Saturn would float."

The outer planets contain a lot of very light hydrogen and helium, therefore the density is lower than the terrestrial planets. However, they may also have heavy (dense) cores which would increase the average density. So it is a balance: how much light hydrogen v how much heavy core.
(OK slight simplification).
