Venera 9?

Just flinging metaphorical darts at the metaphorical dartboard and seeing what sticks.

An attempt at googling (which thinks mares is meant to be mars) brings up stuff about horses, the goddess venus, and some other wierd stuff.

That's gotta be it. From that Wikipedia page the Mission Duration for Venera 9 was 200 days.

So there's that and as said earlier the spacecraft was designated 4V-1 No. 660.

MY wild guess is that if you add a 't' to mares you get "martes", which is tuesday in spanish, so release next week?

Oh hey, this:

"A system of circulating fluid was used to distribute the heat load. This system, plus pre-cooling prior to entry, permitted operation of the lander for 53 minutes after landing"

Coincidence? That's how long the lander lasted before succumbing to the heat.

Let's continue the Venera 9 thought. Afair 1.0 will have a new temperature/heat system. Could that hint that the atmosphere of Eve will be hotter in 1.0? Dangerously hot?

What's 291 degrees E in KSPs coordinate system? The latitude looks close.

Though it may be on the opposite side of the planet from our view.

Lasted 200 days.

Designation 660.

Inclination 29.5 degrees

Eccentricity 0.89002

Anyone able to get a screen cap of an Orbit like that around Eve?

Do we have to find them all? It's Venera 9

There's also two debris craft, the launcher was a Proton-K/D, which had three stages, presumably the second and third stages made it to orbit to become debris?

We don't have to, it would just be cool if we found them all.

Ok, well if you add that EnVision is another proposed Venus mission. That's 7, so you have 1 1/2 left to go.

MARES is a muscular atrophy device. Not sure how that ties in.
