    One thing wrong with this picture the sun ray would have made a dish of thin line of light on both side of Venus.

    The USG has a Starship in space at this moment, don't believe what the media and USG is telling you that the USG has no such starship. China and Russians are already in space exploring the stars, do you really believe they not?
