Venus is made up of a central iron core and a rocky mantle, similar to the composition of Earth. Its atmosphere is mainly made up of carbon dioxide (96%) and nitrogen (3%), with small amounts of other gases.

The air on Venus is the kind of air that humans cannot breathe because there is no oxygen mixed into the air.

The average temperature of Venus at night is as Summer as the day time temperature ( 460 degrees Celsius ) , this is because of the dense Venus atmosphere , Venus is covered by thick clouds that prevent heat from escaping into space . Venus is truly a runaway greenhouse Planet.
