Soviet Space Probes on Venus. The Venera and Vega Programmes

10.30–12.00

The achievements of the Soviet civilian space programme in the time after Yuri Gagarin’s flight are not well known in the West. Nevertheless, the Soviet engineers constructed a large number of space probes with many destinations, chief among them Venus. Ultimately the surface of Venus was photographed in situ in spite of its 90 atmospheres of pressure and sulfuric acid rain.
