for the first time in a a hundred and twenty two years, Earth and venus will be in a direct line with the Sun.. so from our perspective, venus will be crawling across the sun's face, directly in front of it, looking like a little circular black dot, like a large sun spot...
(TRACK)

You weren't around the last time Venus and the sun line danced like this. But fortunately astronomer David Peck Todd was. It was 1882 - when he captured the the transit from - his perch in California. It's safe to say the planetary paparazzi will be poised - and prevalent - this time - Sky and Telescope's Kelly Beatty among those most escited about the last 20 minutes of the six hour event: there's something called the Black Drop, where venus and the sun's edge seem to merge into kind of a teardrop shape, and we're really looking forward to seeing that.
(TRACK)

After months of Mars-mania - a lot of scientists will be happy to focus on our neighbor on the other side of the street - who we don't know so well. Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system - the victim of a runaway greenhouse effect. Many astrobiologists believe when the sun was young - and cooler - Venus was a lot like earth - but when the sun cranked up the theromstat - literally all hell broke loose. The oceans boiled away - and acid clouds enshrouded the planet - sending temperatures past 900 Farenheit. Not the kind of place you would find life, right? Well Venus may still be kicking - with active volcanoes and earthquakes. If NASA is from Mars - scientist David Grinspoon is from Venus:
(GRINSPOON SOT)

Mars is mostly long dead, and Mercury, the moon, they're all dead. Earth is the living planet in terms of geology. Venus we think still might also be a living planet, and it would be really neat to have another one so close by, that is still geologically active, with volcanoes, and Venus quakes, and other kinds of...you know, where you're not just studying the past...
(TRACK)

Studying Venus is fraught with peril - the Soviets managed to land 4 probes named Venera on the rocks in starting the mid 70s - The plucky robots manged to send back a few fleeting images before they burned to a crisp.

(GRINSPOON SOT)

And at night, the rocks would actually glow, faintly, because it is so hot. It's red hot on the surface. and you know, it would be a very bizarre, alien place.

Alien, indeed. Grinspoon thinks it's even possible that acid-loving organisms called extremophiles could live in the cloud layer. transitory By the way - if you miss this Venesian transit this time - you Miles O'Brien, CNN, Atlanta. ))
