Venera 13 Photos
December 10, 2013
Back in high school in 1982 the first and best color photos of Venus were captured by the Soviet Venera 13 lander. I was in awe. I thought to myself, "This is the surface of another world - totally alien to Earth, Wow!" Been a "Space Junky" every since.
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
