NASA has announced two new missions to Venus by 2030. It will be sending two new missions to Venus, as each mission has been awarded with $500 funding. The missions will commenced between 2028 and 2030. 

Nasa administrator Bill Nelson spoke about the missions telling that it will be their second time

Visiting the Planet after 30 years. 

Magellan Orbiter was the first probe to visit the planet in 1990. 

The new mission were chosen following a peer review process and on the basis of its potential scientific value as well as the mission’s feasibility.

The upcoming sister missions will aim to map the planet’s geological history and try decoding how the planet became an inferno-like world that is capable of melting lead.

Davinci+ (Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble gases, Chemistry, and Imaging) mission will study Venus’s atmosphere and gain information on how it evolved to the present state. The mission will also aim to discover if the planet ever had an ocean. 

High resolution images returned by the Davinvi+ probe will be used by scientists to compare with Earth’s geography and also suggest if the planet has plate tectonics.

Veritas (Venus Emissivity, Radio Science, InSAR, Topography, and Spectroscopy), the second mission will map Venus’s surface helping scientist to understand how the planet developed in a much different way than the Earth. 

Radar will be used to chart the surface elevations and find out if volcanoes and earthquakes are still prevalent there.

The new missions will transform our understanding of the planet from its atmosphere all the way down to its core.
