Wind on Earth, Wind on Venus
Wind plays an important role in keeping the temperature of our earth comfortable. On neighboring planet Venus the temperature of the surface reaches up to 460 deg. C and a wind called 'super-rotation' blows at a speed of 100m/s. The Venus-explorer PLANET-C, scheduled to launch in 2010, will enhance our understanding of planetary climate systems including Venus.
