Summary:
Discover an uncharted world with the Magellan space probe. Although it's Earth's closest neighbor, Venus was an enigma until the Magellan space probe pierced the thick clouds shrouding its surface, exposing a strange, alien landscape that still stirs controversy and scientific debate. Magellan's four-year tour revealed an astonishing planet with bizarre topography, crushing atmospheric pressure, and surface temperatures of 900 degrees. Through unprecedented access to NASA, expert interviews, and rare footage, NOVA takes you on a unique voyage to explore a world no one had ever seen before. Get a fascinating up-close look as Magellan transports you to the uncharted surface of our sister planet. See the astounding first images from the Magellan that shattered many scientific predictions. Trace the dramatic history of previous exploration attempts, including disastrous early Russian missions. See how the new data sparked conflicting theories about the planet's evolution and current state. And discover how future missions to Venus could further deepen understanding of our solar system.
