 An early animation test of the main character.

 

In the middle of the film, the Soviet Venera 13 lander craft makes an appearance. This spacecraft landed on Venus on March 1, 1982 and lasted 2 1/2 hours before succumbing to the heat and pressure of the Venusian atmosphere. It returned the only color photographs of the surface of Venus in existence. This CGI version was modeled from rare photos of the lander.
