- Farewell Fantastic Venus Original
Tells the story of Earth's sister planet Venus, from early sightings and fantasies to the present day. In particular, the findings of American and Soviet space probes in the 60s and 70s are examined. The Magellan space probe burned up in 1994 after a decade in orbit around the planet. Extraordinary images of the surface of Venus were produced but scientists have been left with a mass of geological puzzles that threaten to overturn 100 years of dogma about how planets work.
