“Flat-Venus Society” organizes

Abstract

This is a call for the formation of a Flat-Venus Society. In the face of a media blitz that conveys the impression that Venus is characterized by soaring mountains and deep canyons, a dedicated group is needed to promote the fact that our sister planet is mostly flat, rolling plains.

The beautiful and widely publicized “three-dimensional images” and video “flyovers” of Venus released by NASA and the Magellan Project at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory all have a vertical exaggeration of 23:1. This distortion greatly exceeds that normally used even by geologists.
