Venera 13 lasted around 2 hours on the surface of Venus before the heat and pressure destroyed it. Not the hero we deserve, but the hero we need.


How has Material science developed from then? Would we beable to make a probe that could survive a few days/months, now?


How incredible if life is found on Venus in our lifetime!


Is the “color” pic true color (as in what the camera saw) or is that rendered to what we would see?


One of the scientists that worked on that mission believes that they photographed life forms on the surface, but that they were so unusual nobody noticed.
