Venera 13 Photos
December 10, 2013
These best color photos from the Soviet Venera 13 lander in 1982 really made me think of worlds beyond our own, way back in high school. I thought to myself after seeing those images for the first time, "This is a real place but not on Earth - totally alien." Been a space and planetary junky every since!
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
