The last photo from the surface of Venus was taken 40 years ago today...

The Soviet Union's Venera-14 space probe took this photograph during its 52-minute lifespan on the surface of Venus. The probe eventually succumbed to temperatures of up to 847-degrees Fahrenheit.

52 minutes in 847 degrees is pretty good.

Bet you could make some good pizza on those rocks.

That photo is actually an artificial picture of the surface

The originals were black and white and not full panorama and broken

We can only assume thats what it looks like

Venera-7 indicated that the temperature in the landing area exceeded 450 °C, and the atmospheric pressure was 90 atmospheres — that is, as at a depth of 900 meters. These data finally buried all hopes of finding life on Venus.

But how exactly to take photos in such extreme conditions? It was clear that if the camera was placed outside the protective shell, then the enormous pressure and temperature would destroy it. Therefore, engineers placed a telephotometer inside the lander. Through a special porthole, light from the surface got to the periscope device, which then sent it to the camera.

Yeah I was gonna say the only pictures of Venus I've seen look like shitquality. Something like this would have been seen everywhere before.

Link wouldn't open for me but they may be able to accurately predict the color of the atmosphere based on its composition?

Not real. That was filmed in a St. Petersburg movie studio.

Its been around for a long time

But it is a completely artificial photo even in its black and white version

It is a best guess as you will of what they pieced together
