NASA is planning to launch a mission named "DAVINCI Mission". DAVINCI stands for "Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble Gases, Chemistry and Imaging Mission".
About DAVINCI Mission
This mission will fly near Venus in 2029 and explore its harsh atmosphere.
It will reach the surface of Venus by June 2031.
The mission will capture data about Venus, which scientists have been trying to measure since the early 1980s.
DAVINCI Spacecraft Chemistry Laboratory
The DAVINCI spacecraft will serve as a flight chemistry laboratory.
It can measure various aspects of Venus's atmosphere and climate.
The spacecraft's instruments will be able to map the surface of Venus as well as trace the composition of the mountain highlands of Venus.
About the planet Venus
It is the second planet in terms of distance from the Sun. Due to its structural resemblance to Earth, it is also called the twin planet of the Earth.
The atmosphere on Venus is quite dense and toxic, consisting mainly of carbon dioxide gas and sulfuric acid clouds.
Venus is one of only two planets that rotate from east to west. Only Venus and Uranus rotate like this.
On Venus, one day-night cycle is equal to 117 Earth days because Venus rotates around the Sun in the opposite direction of its orbital rotation.
