In the succession of distinguished visitors from Earth to Venus, the Magellan spacecraft has been the most recent. The visitors through the years have consisted of an armada of spacecraft - flybys, orbiters, and landers. Each managed to pierce a small hole in the veil of mystery that has surrounded Venus since the discovery of the telescope. This manuscript offers but a peek at the treasures to be found in the Magellan dataset - and a glimpse into the volumes that have been and will continue to be written regarding the geology of Venus. As the reader looks throughout this book, he will be led one-by-one through the treasures Magellan has gathered - in a manner neither stilted nor oversimplified - and the reader will gain an appreciation of Venus that spans several disciplines and several realms.
