life after people

(PHOTO: image of Venus' surface)
To the left is an image of the surface of Venus taken by a Soviet spacecraft.  The blog side effects has an interesting post about Mars.  No human has ever stepped foot on Mars or Venus, yet we "know" something of the unknown.  Through images, through instruments - we capture places remote in space and time.  The Life After People series is also fantastic with respect to this idea - that of bearing witness to the unrepresented, the unknown, the unthought.
