Venus Featured 14 Apr 2003 Print


Venus, artwork. This is the second planet from the Sun, the next in from Earth and around 42 million kilometres further in, an average of 108 million kilometres from the Sun. Its diameter of 12, 100 kilometres is slightly smaller than that of the Earth. Venus has a dense atmosphere of carbon dioxide and sulphuric acid clouds that obscure the rocky surface. The atmosphere traps the Sun's heat and leads to surface temperatures of over 500 degrees Celsius, the hottest planetary surface in the solar system. In addition, the atmospheric pressure on the surface is 90 times that on Earth

Artwork of explosion of Krakatau in 1883

Artwork depicting the explosion of Krakatau (or Krakatoa) in August 1883. Krakatau was an uninhabited island in the Sunda Straits between Java and Sumatra. Volcanic activity began on 20 May 1883, and continued until late August. At 10am local time on 27 August 1883, the island exploded. This was probably the loudest sound in recorded history, being heard over 4000 km away and the shock wave in the air being detected all over the globe. The ensuing tsunami waves up to 40 metres high killed 36, 380 people and destroyed 163 villages. Rocks were thrown 55 km into the air, and some ash fell on ships 6000 km away. About 24 square kilometres of the island had disappeared
