Callejas 3 explains why the two are referenced as sister planets. As Jupiter is similar to the size of the Sun and is often compared to the big star in the sky. When people first think of Jupiter the first thing that comes to mind is it’s moons. Jupiter has approximately 63 moons while Venus does not have any. Jupiter also has a very layered core but it is known for it’s thick and dense atmosphere which runs for hundred of miles long until you reach the actual planet. NASA has visited both planets on various different missions launched from Earth. Although the two planets can somewhat be called “sister planets” they share and uphold many similarities and differences. Both worlds are covered with a thick atmosphere and look alike from the naked eye, they both reflect a strong ray of sunlight which makes them so bright. When thinking of the two planets I imagined them as the symbol of Yin and Yang, one upholds the light when it is dawn or sunset and the other can be seen through the darkness of the night. Both are mysterious but hold such an important role in our enormous galaxy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
