"...was a Soviet uncrewed space mission to.."

Uncrewed? Is that what we call robotic missions now?

It is a replacement for unmanned and for better or for worse has been the standard for yeats now.

Should I give to Wikipedia? I'd like to but I've read Jimmy Wales is a dick and possibly grifting.

The fact that the pressure on Venus is so high that it destroys everything blows my mond.

Blows it so much I can't even spell anymore

I read about this s couple years ago when I fell down a Wikipedia hole.  Easily one of the coolest things humanity has ever done.

There are color pictures from a later mission and if there is a hell, it's Venus.

Venus is a pretty neat place. I wonder if it'd ever be possible to reverse the global warming on that planet and see how it turns out. just for shiats and giggles.

Sure. Just hit it with enough comets to add water to the lithosphere... and enough to melt it to give a chance for the altered chemistry to maybe start tectonic plates working. Then the atmosphere might be able to become more interesting.

So not quite a year before the Vikings arrived on Mars? Neat.

For some reason I thought no probes were able to penetrate the Venus atmosphere. Crazy farkin Russians.
