Trivia

When the Venera probes first sent back their images from the surface of Venus, there was wide speculation that there was life on the planet due to irregularities in the images noted as "black flaps" and "scorpions". It wasn't until later confirmed that the anomalies in the images were simply artifacts due to image processing. The surface of Venus is essentially the temperature of the inside of a burning house.

Fascinating
24 June 2019 | by godsnamesSee all my reviews

It is bold, it is ambitious, it is utterly spectacular but also, it is smart. I've heard explanations I'd never heard before about our Solar System. Frankly, I've never known (them) despite watching documentaries about space for decades. It gives you a unique perspective. Also, Brian is a 15 out of 10 presenter, engaging and as simple as a friend. All in all, it's going to be one of the best science series of the year.
