This is what it would look like if you were walking on the surface of Venus

Don P. Mitchell knows about Soviet era space exploration. By combining 30-year-old data sent by the Venera spacecraft and new computing techniques, Mitchell managed to reveal to us the Venusian surface anew. Instead of just looking at some stones and tiny hints at what a Venusian sky might look like, his new projections expand and show us what it would actually look like walking on the surface of Venus.

Unfortunately, the new projection images were only produced in black and white, so as a bonus Wandering Space attempted a colourization based upon colour images that were also returned from the mission. The colour interpretation is artistic and based on real data, but should not be considered as scientifically accurate.
