Sound recording from Venera 14


Post by Chich »

Just found this recording of sound on Venus from the Venera 14 lander. There is a low wind (or maybe some static?) and you can hear the lens cap popping off, the drill working and the soil sample dropping into the test chamber. The lander survived for almost an hour which is quite respectable considering the surface conditions were 470 Celsius with a pressure of 93.5 Earth atmospheres.

I love thing like this. Recordings from another world :)
