Venus - Venera 14 Lander

Venera 14 Lander black and white images of the surface of Venus

Venera 14 Lander images of the surface of Venus at 13 S, 310 E on 5 March 1982. The lander survived for 60 minutes. Both images show part of the lander at the bottom. This area is composed of flat basalt-like rocks, but little soil or fine-grained material as was seen at other Venera Lander sites. Near the center of the top image is a lens cover, and the bottom image shows a test arm. (Venera 14 Lander, YG06848, Russian Space Agency, not necessarily in the public domain)
