Although dense clouds shroud Earth's closest neighbor from direct view, the recent Magellan mission has brought back fascinating detailed photographs to illuminate data gathered on previous voyages. Atlas of Venus presents more than 100 maps and illustrations showing the planet's dramatic beauty and dynamic volcanism. The text gives the historical background of our perception of the planet, clearly explaining why Venus has been the goal of so many missions by both Russian and American space programs.
