Wikipedia – The Venera program established a number of precedents in space exploration, among them being the first human-made devices to enter the atmosphere of another planet (Venera 3 on 1 March 1966), the first to make a soft landing on another planet (Venera 7 on 15 December 1970), the first to return images from another planet’s surface (Venera 9 on 8 June 1975), and the first to perform high-resolution radar mapping scans (Venera 15 on 2 June 1983).

I’m looking forward to blogging again

I’m just not sure exactly when that’s going to happen. But I’ll tell you this, I’ve got one heck of a story to tell. Who knows, I might already have two months of material ready to publish at the touch of a button.

But then again, there are so many cobwebs around this empty bag of nothing there’s no reason to believe anyone has stopped by this place in quite a while.

(Hmmm… Let’s see if I can figure out how to leave the comments on.) Oh, and I’ve lost 52-pounds.

Maybe I’ve done nothing but work on an animal action movie?
