Standing on Venus with Venera 10
On October 25, 1975, Venera 10 landed on the surface of Venus and acquired a 180-degree panorama of the surface. Ted Stryk used the images in the panorama to create this artistic view of what the scene would look like if one were standing on the surface. This view was created by rectifying the individual images in the panorama to show the surface at a more natural angle, sampling each image at different distances from the lander and using image data to fill any gaps remaining after this process. The objects in the image are real, though the arrangement is not.
