Magellan, the spacecraft sent to map the surface of our sister planet, Venus, has returned an unprecedented amount of data in a successful effort far beyond NASA's original goals. Magellan Project Scientist Steve Saunders and Deputy Project Scientist Ellen Stofan have captured the best of these results in Magellan Highlights of Venus. Informative image captions describe both the features themselves and the methods scientists have used to analyze them, and include discussions of Venusian impact craters, mountains, tessera terrain, coronae, arachnoids, volcanoes, channels, and dunes.
