Pioneering Venus; A Planet Unveiled. Richard O. Fimmel, Lawrence Colin, Eric Burgess.
Washington DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Ames Research Center, 1995. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. xi, [1], 358, [2] pages. Illustrations (many in color). Appendices. Glossary. Bibliography. Acronyms. Index. Format is 9 inches by 11.5 inches. Cover has some wear and soiling. Richard O. Fimmel was the Manager of Pioneer Missions at the Ames Research Center. In the early 1980s, Ames presented to NASA Headquarters concepts for Pioneer-class missions to the outer and inner planets, under the leadership of Dr. Larry Colin, chief of the Space Science Division at Ames Research. Eric Burgess (1920 – March 2005) was an English journalist, who wrote about the Pioneer program missions since the first tests in 1957. He was the science correspondent of the Christian Science Monitor for many of the planetary probe launches, and was often the senior science reporter present at those events. Burgess is credited with the original idea that the Pioneer probes should carry a message for extraterrestrial intelligences. He approached Carl Sagan, which eventually resulted in the Pioneer plaque.
