A few days after NASA decided to send two missions to the mysterious twin Venus, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced its own habitable probe. EnVision will be the next orbiter to orbit Venus, providing an overall view of Venus. As NASA’s DAVINCI+ and VERITAS probes penetrate the atmosphere of Venice, EnVision will determine how and why Venus and Earth evolved so differently, even in the habitable zone of the sun.
The goal is to start in 2030, similar to the timetable. Two NASA probes. “A new era is waiting for us to explore the nearest but completely different solar system neighbors. Coupled with the recently announced Venus mission led by NASA, we will carry out an extremely extensive scientific program on this mysterious planet. Until next time. Venus is the nearest neighbor in the interior of the earth.
Although the solar system is similar in size and composition, its nearest neighbor on Earth, Venus, has undergone major climate changes, forming a toxic atmosphere in a thick sulfuric acid cloud. EnVision will look for the answer to the question: “What history did Venus go through to reach this state? Will it still face a catastrophic greenhouse effect?” ESA said.
The agency added that they will try to understand if Venus is still geologically active and whether it could hold the ocean or even support life one day. The spectrometer will track traces of gas in the atmosphere and analyze the composition of the surface, looking for changes that may be related to signs of active volcanic activity,” ESA said.
The spacecraft will also conduct radio science experiments to examine internal structures and gravitational fields, and ” Study the structure and composition of the atmosphere. The first opportunity to launch an orbiter will appear in 2031 after the launch window appears. It will open in 2032 and 2033. The spacecraft will be launched on the Ariane 6 rocket and will reach the orbit of Venus in 15 months, and will use aerodynamic braking to enter a circular orbit in 16 months.
