The probe eventually succumbed to temperatures of up to 847-degrees Fahrenheit.


Not to mention the atmospheric pressure is 92 times of Earth’s at sea level.

wind speeds are 200-300 miles per hour as well

That's in the upper atmosphere about 50 mi above the surface. The strong winds are very effective in transfer of heat from one hemisphere to the other, so the entire planet has a universal temperature of ~ 450°C, which doesn't vary from day to night.

It's speculated that the scorching surface winds are gentle, no more than about 6 mph.

Venera 14 had two color cameras on it dude. This is commonly known and well documented.

Where are the visible light pictures than

Post them

The OP and pictures like it are completely not real

I already posted a link to the photos but you ignored it because you think you know every fricking thing. Here it is again.
quote:

This color 170 degree panorama was produced using dark blue, green and red filters



In case it's not obvious to you, blue, green, and red are colors in the visible light spectrum, and using filters in these colors results in b&w images which are then colorized and assembled into a full color image. That is the same principle by which digital cameras produce color images today, they filter rgb, collect the data as intensity values, colorize and assemble. Film processing is similar, except it uses chemistry and layers sensitive to the primary colors.

quote:

The OP and pictures like it are completely not real
So to your first claim about the original photos being "black and white", that's just how photography is done. That's how it has to be done. That's the only way we know how to do it, by assembling layers of intensity values (which correspond to black->white) and then colorizing and assembling them.

To your second claim of images being "pieced together" and therefore "not real", what fricking difference does that make? Does an image have to be captured in one full frame for it to be "real"? That's absurd. You mentioned it wasn't "full panorama" and was "broken". What's that got to do with anything?

Why are the photos "completely not real"? The one in the OP, which has been assembled from several images and corrected for lens distortion and color imbalances... what's not real about it? I guarantee that every single image taken today which you consider "real" has been automatically corrected for lens distortion and color corrected. 100% of them. Lenses introduce distortion, and projecting the 3D world onto a 2D film or sensor surface introduces distortion. And the raw light intensity values are corrected to produce an image similar to what our eyes might see. What difference does it make if these corrections are done automatically by the camera, or after the fact in post processing?

And to your other claim that there are "no visible light photos from any Venera mission", that is just patently false.

That photo is actually an artificial picture of the surface

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



The probe had color cameras on it.
