A vacation on Venus

Venus, the second planet from the sun and closest to Earth rotates at a speed of 6.52km/h (4.05 mph) whereas Earth rotates at 1,674.4 km/h (1,040.4 mph).

You wouldn’t want to spend a 10-day vacation on Venus, even though it would last 6.6 years. The temperature on Venus can reach 867 °F (464 °C) and the average surface pressure is 93 bar (1,350 psi).
