The YSS topic for August is Windy Worlds. Many of the planets in our solar system have significant atmospheres, but none are breathable to us except our own Earth’s. These windy worlds do have some commonalities with our home planet. Like Earth, they have jet streams that can direct the flow of clouds and circulate the atmosphere. The weather systems on other planets can help us to better understand our own world.
