Venus◄ Alien Life? Robotic Object And Other Anomalies Found In NASA Vene...

The Venera series probes were developed by the Soviet Union

between 1961 and 1984 to gather data from Venus, Venera

being the Russian name for Venus. As with some of the

Soviet Union's other planetary probes,

the later versions were launched in pairs

with a second vehicle being launched soon after

the first of the pair.

Ten probes from the Venera series successfully landed on Venus

and transmitted data from the surface, including the two

program and Venera-Halley probes. In addition, thirteen Venera

probes successfully transmitted data from the atmosphere of Venus.

Venera 13 and 14

The two descent craft landed about 950 kilometres (590 mi) apart,

just east of the eastern extension of an elevated region known as

Phoebe Region. The Venera 13 lander survived for 127 minutes, and

the Venera 14 lander for 57 minutes, where the planned design life

was only 32 minutes. The Venera 14 craft had the misfortune of

ejecting the camera lens cap directly under the surface compressibility

tester arm, and returned information for the compressibility

of the lens cap rather than the surface. The descent vehicles

transmitted data to the buses, which acted as data relays as they flew by Venus.

Leonid Ksanfomaliti of the Space

Research Institute of Russia's Academy of Sciences

published research that analyzed the photos

from the Venus mission made by a Soviet

landing probe, Venus-13, in 1982.

The photos feature several objects, which

Ksanfomaliti said, resembled "a disk," "a black

flap" and "a scorpion." All of them "emerge,

fluctuate and disappear," the scientist said,

referring to their changing location on different

photos and traces on the ground.

"What if we forget about the current theories

about the nonexistence of life on Venus, let's

boldly suggest that the objects' morphological

features would allow us to say that they are

living," Solar System Research quoted Ksanfomaliti

as saying.

John Lear has been quoted as saying

"Our first

efforts were to keep the public from

learning about VENUS.

A very similar planet to Earth and

its population is very similar to us, just

technologically advanced.

We learned a lot

starting with the Russian Venera 1 and

U.S. Mariner 2.

We made Venus look like a lead-melting,

volcanic surface; spewing sulfuric acid into a

pressurized atmosphere 90 times that of

Earth. And as often the case,

we over did it and we wondered why

nobody asked how a parachute survived a

descent into 800-degree air."
