# What is Venus's core made of?

As we all know Venus's surface is so hot that it can probably melt lead. What would be in it's in core? Is it in the liquid or solid state? What would be it's temperature? How many cores does it have?

• Did you do any prior research? The Wikipedia article and many other search results rather clearly state that little certain information is known about Venus internal structure. Jul 22 '16 at 13:06
• yea, i actually was searching on internet about venus core . din't find any required information there. wanted to know if there is any new update or additional information i can get here. Jul 22 '16 at 13:54
• Although you say the wikipedia article wasn't helpful, you have accepted an answer which is based on it. I googled your title and found several other relevant sites. If you want the latest information, your best bet is probably the NASA website, or SkyAndTelescope, space.com, UniverseToday or AstronomyNow. Jul 25 '16 at 23:16
• can i have any particular web links ? Jul 26 '16 at 3:14
• @NaniHari, just google NASA and the NASA website will be the first thing that comes up. Same with the others. Jul 27 '16 at 14:13

Venus's Mass is roughly $.815 M_e$. So it would not be unorthodox to hypothesize that it is molten, which is supported by the volcanoes on its surface. It probably has a solid molten metal core like ours, with a smaller mantle and the solid core region, with the core being smaller in proportion to the mantle then our core to mantle ratio.
