Reworked images reveal hot Venus

venus > retroactive > exploration
"Computer researcher Don Mitchell used original digital data from two Soviet Venera probes that landed in 1975.
His reprocessed and recalibrated images provide a much clearer view of the Venusian surface which is hotter even than the inside of a household oven."
Don Mitchell's site has much info on the Venera missions and the Soviet exploration of Venus(although the recalibrated images are not available yet).
Venus, will be coming closer next year (hopefully) when Venus Express starts orbiting the planet.
