Still image from The Universe: Mercury and Venus, the Inner Planets

Scorched by their proximity to the sun, Mercury and Venus are hostile worlds. One is gouged with craters from cosmic collisions, and the other is a vortex of sulfur, carbon dioxide, and acid rain. Prime examples of planets gone awry, do they serve as a warning for ominous scenarios that might someday threaten Earth? Cutting-edge computer graphics are used to show what life would be on other planets and to imagine what kind of life forms might evolve in alien atmospheres.
