Explains the impact of extreme atmospheric pressure on temperature and how greenhouse gasses have created hellish conditions on Venus.
Mars has an extremely low atmospheric pressure leading to dust storms that cover the entire planet for months - and 'dust devils' that are a kilometre high.
Jupiter's 'great red spot' is a huge storm that has raged for hundreds of years, while the usually calm Saturn can suddenly erupt in storms more violent than anything in the solar system.
The extreme pressure and temperatures in Saturn's lower atmosphere means the surface is bombarded by a type of rain formed of diamonds.
A whole new field of astronomy uses physics to help identify the size and composition of planets far beyond our solar system.
