Venus, let's see; if you stepped out on Venus, you'd be crushed by the atmospheric pressure, burned a lot by the 990 degree heat (or melted as there is lava flowing all over the place), struck by lightning most likely from the clouds all over and burned from the sulfuric acid raindrops. You'd also choke to death since you can't breath the air. Wonderful way to die, eh??

I've always wondered if we did have long term probes on Venus or Mercury then would coummunications and electronic functions of the probes be disrupted easier by sun-spots and solar flares then something closer to earth? Does the proximity to the sun make electronics more susceptable to disturbance from sun-spots?
