NASA to send 2 missions to Venus by 2030

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced on Wednesday it plans to launch two new missions to Venus between 2028 and 2030, with the development’s total cost estimated at around $1 billion.

According to the statement, the main goal of the mission will be to “understand how Venus became an inferno-like world when it has so many other characteristics similar to ours – and may have been the first habitable world in the solar system, complete with an ocean and Earth-like climate.”

DAVINCI+ mission intends to find out if Venus ever had an ocean, while VERITAS mission should determine the planet’s geologic history. The first NASA’s successful mission to Venus took place in 1962, while the last trip was organized in the 1990s.
