Scientists have used radar waves from three antennas in the Mojave Desert to peek beneath the dense clouds of Venus and capture images that suggest that the planet has had active volcanoes in the not-too-distant past. The fuzzy images show mountains that seem to be of volcanic origin and broad lava flows up to 350 miles long, according to the scientists, Raymond F. Jurgens, Martin F. Slade and R.

Re "Greece Fiddles as Terrorists Work," editorial, June 15: Greece has every reason to rid itself of this scourge, for the main targets of the terrorists have been Greeks. The November 17 terrorist group has never proclaimed an institutional agenda; its attacks have been made exclusively on targeted individuals. That is why this group, relying on the actions of a very few members without wider connections, has been so difficult to track down.

Brig. Stephen Saunders, the British military attache in Athens, was shot to death last week, apparently by members of the November 17 group, the same terrorist organization that killed CIA station chief Richard Welch in the Greek capital in 1975 and at least 20 Greeks and other foreigners since then. Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis has vowed to hunt down the Marxist gunmen, but until he produces results his promise rings hollow in London and Washington.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but police said ballistic tests showed that the spent shells found on the scene came from a .
