Hi all. Does anyone know when the English edition of 'Lune' by Olivier De Goursac is to be published? Amazon UK had a release date of June 30 2012, but that came and went and now they say they don't know when it will become available. sad.gif

Many thanks Ted. I can remember as a teenager in the 80s reading about the tantalising 'partial image' from Mars 3. I must have trawled through half the libraries in London to actually see it for myself - without success. I think what your images succinctly articulate is that all too human frailty of seeing what we want to see - transforming a little strip of noise into the first fleeting glimpse of another world. All I can say is thank goodness the Viking landers succeeded not too long afterwards. Can you imagine how iconic this 'image' might have become amongst the conspiracy theorists? The one and only probe to successfully make it to the surface suddenly and mysteriously falls silent. What is it that 'they' do not want us to see? And who are 'they'? Those that built the mighty Face on Mars of course!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Tedstryk. I'd be really grateful if you could re-post your images from the start of this thread as the links seem to have expired - I'm totally intrigued !!!

Hi all. I guess like everyone else I was totally dumbstruck when I saw Don Mitchell's perspective renderings of the Venera 13 and 14 sites for the first time. From what I understand there is some colour information buried in the original dataset but there are various problems and challenges in extracting it to give a true idea of surface conditions as the human eye might see them. In the meantime I was wondering whether any of you image wizards out there might consider producing 'best guess' colour versions of these fantastic views based on the information already out there - and maybe the Venera 9 and 10 sets as well ? I know this is a big ask - particularly from a 'newbie' - and you are all busy people. But I for one would be really grateful and it is nearly my birthday. In two and a half months. Well more like three actually. Al.

Many thanks for the warm welcome and info John. My insomnia is currently being fuelled by thoughts of what the August flyby will reveal and the Pluto Kodak moment !!!!!!!Al.

Hello everyone. This is my first post so I hope I'm not starting with a dumb question - are there more images to be released from this flyby? Congratulations to all involved with this site. Just awe inspiring. Al.
