 Venera 13 and 14 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Venera 13 and Venera 14 (Russian: Венера-13, Венера-14) were a pair of identical probes in the Soviet Venera program for the exploration of Venus.
Venera 13 and 14 were identical spacecraft built to take advantage of the 1981 Venus launch opportunity and launched 5 days apart, Venera 13 on 1981-10-30 at 06:04:00 UTC and Venera 14 on 1981-11-04 at 05:31:00 UTC, both with an on-orbit dry mass of 760 kg.
Venera 14, however, ended up measuring the compressibility of the lens cap, which landed right where the probe was to measure the soil.

 Lava Compositions on Venus
Analyses obtained by the Venera 13 and 14 craft on the plains east of Phoebe Regio showed smooth surfaces and curved edged surface features, which resembled pahoehoe lava similar to that of the basalts of the Hawaiian Shields or the slab pahoehoe surfaces seen in the Snake River Plains.
The main aims of the Venera 13 and 14 missions were to study the composition, structure and properties of Venusian rocks, and their layering on the surface.
Venera 8 analyses, with a high potassium content (4%) and ten times the U and Th content of other sites, indicated an evolved, subalkaline lava equivalent to a trachyte or syenite, or a type of alkaline mafic rock such as a lamprophyre.
