Venus PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Venus free pdf The surface of Venus is the most hellish place in the solar system. The ground is hot enough to melt aluminum. The air pressure crushes spacecraft like tin cans. The sky is perpetually covered with clouds of sulfuric acid. The atmosphere is a choking mixture of poisonous gases.

This is where Van Humphries must go. Or die trying.

His older brother perished in the first attempt to land a man on Venus, years before, and his father has always hated him for surviving when his brother died. Now his father has offered ten billion dollars to the first person to land on Venus and return his oldest son's remains.

To everyone's surprise, Van takes up the offer. But what Van Humphries will find on Venus will change everything -- our understanding of Venus and of Earth, and Van's own knowledge of who he is.
