Hawkwind - Who's Gonna Win The War...

Atmosphere (Joy Division) - August (US) September 80 (UK)...
Venus is the second planet from the Sun, orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days.. It has no natural satellite.. It is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. After the Moon, it is the brightest natural object in the night sky, reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6, bright enough to cast shadows.. Because Venus is an inferior planet from Earth, it never appears to venture far from the Sun: its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8°..Venus is a terrestrial planet and is sometimes called Earth's "sister planet" because of their similar size, mass, proximity to the Sun and bulk composition..Venus has an extremely dense atmosphere, which consists mainly of carbon dioxide and a small amount of nitrogen. The atmospheric mass is 93 times that of Earth's atmosphere, whereas the pressure at the planet's surface is about 92 times that at Earth's surface—a pressure equivalent to that at a depth of nearly 1 kilometre under Earth's oceans. This makes the Venusian surface hotter than Mercury's, which has a minimum surface temperature of 55 K (−220 °C) and maximum surface temperature of 695 K (420 °C), even though Venus is nearly twice Mercury's distance from the Sun and thus receives only 25% of Mercury's solar irradiance.. The surface of Venus is often described as hellish.. This temperature is higher than temperatures used to achieve sterilization..

The surface of Venus is effectively isothermal; it retains a constant temperature not only between day and night but between the equator and the poles.. The planet's minute axial tilt—less than 3°, compared to 23° on Earth—also minimizes seasonal temperature variation..During the Soviet Venera program, the Venera 11 and Venera 12 probes detected a constant stream of lightning, and Venera 12 recorded a powerful clap of thunder soon after it landed..All the planets of the Solar System orbit the Sun in an anti-clockwise direction as viewed from above Earth's north pole.. Most planets also rotate on their axes in an anti-clockwise direction, but Venus rotates clockwise (called "retrograde" rotation) once every 243 Earth days—the slowest rotation period of any planet. Because its rotation is so slow, it is highly spherical.. A Venusian sidereal day thus lasts longer than a Venusian year (243 versus 224.7 Earth days)..The transit of Venus was first observed in 1032 by the Persian astronomer Avicenna, who concluded Venus is closer to Earth than the Sun, and established Venus was, at least sometimes, below the Sun..Venera 1965A 23 November 65 Fly-by (launch failure)..

Carbon dioxide (chemical formula CO2) is a naturally occurring chemical compound composed of 2 oxygen atoms each covalently double bonded to a single carbon atom..It is also a major source of ocean acidification since it dissolves in water to form carbonic acid..Carbon dioxide was one of the first gases to be described as a substance distinct from air..Carbon dioxide was first liquefied (at elevated pressures) in 1823 by Humphry Davy and Michael Faraday..The normal result of a bicarbonate blood test depends on the age of the individual. For adults, a normal bicarbonate level falls between 23–29 millimoles per liter (mmol/L)\August 19 – A fire breaks out in the aft cargo compartment of Saudia Flight 163, a Lockheed L-1011-200 TriStar, a few minutes after takeoff from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.. By the time airport emergency personnel get one of the plane '​s doors open 23 minutes after engine shutdown, all 301 people on board have died/23- Charlie Finley sells A's for $127M to Haas (owners of Levi Strauss)\September 23 - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad opens- Bob Marley's last concert at Stanley Theatre Pittsburgh– Iraqi aircraft attack Iranian airfields at Tabriz (twice), Dezful (twice), Shahroki, Kermanshah, Al-Ahwaz, and Sanandaj, but again make little impact on Iranian air capabilities.. Iranian aircraft fly 100 sorties on September 23 despite the attacks, prompting Iraq ro disperse many of its aircraft into other Arab countries for the next week to 10 days/24 – 34-year-old Singapore born doctor Upadhya Bandara is attacked and injured in Headingley, Leeds; the Yorkshire Ripper is believed to have been responsible..Heading-ley is first mentioned in the Domesday Book as Hedingelei or Hedingeleia in 1086 where it is recorded that Ilbert de Lacy held 7 carucates (about 840 acres) of land...

The A523 is a road in Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, England running from a junction with the A52 north west of Ashbourne to the A6 in Hazel Grove, passing through Leek, Macclesfield and Poynton..Ian Kevin (23) Curtis (15 July 56 – 18 May 80) was an English musician and singer-songwriter...77 Barton Street, Macclesfield..Stroszek is a 77 film by German director Werner Herzog..The Idiot was the first of 2 LPs released in 77..While Samantha Morton (born 13 May 77) plays his wife, Deborah (A character in the Charlie and Lola franchise)...According to Honoré in a 2010(777) interview, her relationship with Ian Curtis was entirely platonic..She worked as a civil servant, more specifically as a secretary in the Research and Innovation department of the European Commission in Brussels..Die Herzogstraße ist eine Straße im Wuppertaler Stadtteil Elberfeld...The film had its debut at the Cannes Film Festival on 17 May 2007 to great acclaim..Polished copper has been used for mirrors from antiquity, and the symbol for Venus has sometimes been understood to stand for the mirror of the goddess..The parent tree at the Morton Arboretum is noted for the resemblance of its habit to the American Elm Ulmus americana..., let me explain something to you.. Whenever you come in here and interrupt me,you're breaking my concentration..You're distracting me.. And it will then take me time to get back to where I was.. You understand?..Now,we're going to make a new rule..When you come in here and you hear me...
