Untitled[edit]

It would be nice to combine this page with the other page "Exploration of Venus". This page is the better one, but some information from Exploration of Venus could be included.

"Exploration of Venus" contains too much of a bias toward Magellan, and glosses over all other missions. This page could use a little more information about Magel

  • Merge Exploration of Venus into this one --GW_Simulations 15:19, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge per GW Simulations. M1ss1ontomars2k4 12:19, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge. There is no reason to have 2 articles on Explorations of Venus.DavidGC 11:45, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Merge into this one per nom and GW. --BillC 00:57, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Merge done.... but it will need cleanup. Cwolfsheep 19:21, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

This article cites no sources; notice of such added. Drooling Sheep 10:12, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

why don't we add a timeline tab like the one in the mars article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by SquallLeonhart ITA (talkcontribs) 10:58, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Venera 9 panorama.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Venera 9 panorama.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The "first" to observe Venus[edit]

I don't think that the Babylonians were the first to observe Venus considering it's one of the brightest objects in the night sky. Maybe the original author meant something else. Also, the Historical observations section needs to be sourced and probably even redone. --AntigrandiosËTalk 00:56, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

I am very concerned about the use of non-free images to denote the operators of spacecraft in this article (I think it is just the JAXA logo in this article). They can easily be replaced in this manner with text indicating the agency name, and therefore their use here violates copyright, and cannot be justified as fair use. --W. D. Graham 09:09, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
