Davinci+ mission (Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble gases, Chemistry, and Imaging) will measure the planet's atmosphere to gain insight into how it formed and evolved. It will also aim to determine whether Venus ever had an ocean.
The second mission – Veritas (Venus Emissivity, Radio Science, InSAR, Topography и Spectroscopy) will map the planet's surface to understand its geologic history and investigate how it developed so differently than Earth.
These missions should start from 2028 until 2030.
“NASA chose two new missions to Venus – the closest to the Earth neighbor-planet. These two sister missions both aim to understand how Venus became an inferno-like world, capable of melting lead at the surface," NASA administrator Bill Nelson said.
As we reported, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration published the first video from the Ingenuity helicopter on Mars. The video shows that the Ingenuity helicopter was able to get off the ground and ‘hang’ above the surface of the planet for a while.
