Another in our Celestial Classics series in which we look at aspects of astronomy, usually celestial bodies but also a NASA mission in this case, and the myths that inspired their names. Today is the turn of the Goddess Artemis, the Greek mythological goddess of the hunt, of chastity, of pregnancy and childbirth, of the wilderness, hunting and those aspects of brutality to which humans must accept their place or else be doomed to destroy the very world on which they live. She is my favourite and I won’t hear a word against her!
An exploration of the seemingly inhospitable hellscape that is the planet Venus, the hottest planet in our Solar System. We delve into the reasons why Venus, the Morning Star, became associated with Satan, via the word ‘lucifer’ and we discuss the prodigious fucking, portrayal of feminine beauty and unmatched sexiness of the Goddess of Love, Venus, herself.
