Okay, this is Venus. It's an image taken by the Magellan space probe.
Why is it here now? Well, I found this simulation you might want to try.
When I was younger, and before SimCity, there was SimEarth. The goal was to establish sentient life on a planet you controlled. You could adjust terrain and the like. Well, it turns out NASA has a new simulator with much much better graphics. It's called Extreme Planet Makeover. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
