Shades of cerulean blue, cream, gold and silver are accurate to the original.

Magellan was named for the famed Portugese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. It was responsible for mapping the surface of Venus with radar, revealing key information about the planet’s volcanism, gravity field, and plate movement. These marvelous discoveries continue to inform our understanding of Venus today, and make Magellan an emblem of true intrepidity.
