Would the earth become Venus like if it moved into Venus' orbit?

We have the advantage of having a 24 hour rotational period.

Only because we are located where we are in relationship to the sun. Our day might indeed be lengthened or shortened by the gravitational forces being exerted on our planet.

That being said, I really believe it's high time for another Venus lander. We've had flybys sure, but imagine a pic of active vulcanism on Venus' surface. Space porn!

…imagine a pic of active vulcanism on Venus' surface.

Because of the high pressure at the surface wouldn't that be like undersea 'smokers' on earth?

Forgive me, so Venus is slower rotation than Earth? Because of the Suns gravity? Maybe earth would be pulled into slowing down some if it were closer.

Indeed, I do not possess the scientific acumen to determine what effects the atmosphere would have on particulates. But no matter how it looked it would be absolutely amazing. I desperately want some actual video from probes and rovers. Photos are one thing, but to see the landscape move makes it more visceral somehow.

Russian technology is obviously inferior.

Less sophisticated, but very rugged. Certainly adequate to the task.



Has the US ever put probes on Venus and taken pictures of that or higher quality?

The Pioneer Venus mission in the late '70s dropped 4 probes into the atmosphere. They were small and optimized for studying atmospheric chemistry & conditions, so they didn't have cameras. One of the probes survived all the way to the surface. The US has not sent a lander mission to Venus. They concentrated on Mars. By contrast, the USSR had several successful Venus landers, but never a successful Mars lander. Soviet probes of the era were rugged, but their more primitive electronics tended to break-down on long missions. Flight time to Venus is shorter than to Mars.



Can you also link to the source and full size pictures please.

From this page:
Camera 1
Camera 2

Note that the original images are only 211 pixels from top to bottom. See this page for the camera description.

The OP photos were modified:
"The Venera panoramas are spherical projections. They can be remapped to perspective projections and overlayed (using Adobe Photoshop CS2) to produce views that give a better subjective impression of the Venusian surface."

Wow, just wow! It always takes my breath away when I see images from other planets.

Same here!




Pity the Lunar pictures aren't as clear as this.

For a planet covered in SMOG and POISON that comes out clearer than one (the Moon) with ZERO (questionable) ATMOSPHERE is mind boggling.

Maybe NASA should use Russian Optics.

Say WHAT??!! The 2 Venera-13 images are ~211 x 1000 pixels. This page has several thousand lunar surface photographs shot by top-of-the-line Hasselblad cameras on fine-grain 70mm film. These hi-res scans are 2340 x 2369 pixels. I've seen scans of these that are ~4,000 pixels on a side. Your argument makes no sense at all.



Astronomers and astrophotographers give their left arm for Russian optics.

Citation needed.

Sure, you can look this link for some LUNA mission pictures... (1966)

mentallandscape.com...

Probably not what you would expect.... but remember, not much to see on moon either...

LOL, 1 minute late...

I would like to see a Venus probe that is actually a large dirigible that floats in the thick atmosphere slowly discharging genetically engineered bacteria that would eat away at the sulfur and CO2 and produce a mixture of nitrogen, oxygen and good old water. We can't do much about the rotational period, but maybe we could modify the atmosphere enough so it could be somewhat habitable. It would take a long time, but what's the hurry?

The problem there is what I think the same problem would be if were were to try that on Mars; a negligible magnetosphere as compared to earth. Any atmospheric chemicals we did create would be quickly swept away by solar wind.

Cool pics. Never seen them.
It looks like they were also setting a trap for a Venusian bear.

ah you must be referring to the elusive but deadly manbearpig

Incredible images... So otherworldly, I feel like joining the next probe.


eh you wouldnt last very long on venus or anywhere else for that matter.
something tells me you dont know much at all about space.

I'm not going get into it with a climate change denier. Sorry. If you want to talk planetary science I'm here but otherwise I have no interest.

You know I DID read the article that mentioned the camera has taken a few pictures before getting destroyed by the weather.

I am well aware that outer space isn't human-friendly at all.

I'm just bored of this planet in its people.

Something tells me you had a rough day and you had to let some steam out?
