The leading NASA announced its intention to send two missions for exploring Venus after identifying evidence of alive creatures on its surface, Sputnik reported on Thursday.
The two missions: “VERITAS” and “DAVINCI+” will cost $ 500 million for each and both are part of Nasa’s new plan for discovering the Earth’s twin. In addition, both will be launched between 2028 and 2030.
Nasa Chief Bill Nelson said: “These two sister missions both aim to understand how Venus became an inferno-like world, capable of melting lead at the surface.”
The Davinci+ (Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble gases, Chemistry, and Imaging) will take the responsibility for detecting the presence of past oceans on the surface of the planet and the history of its atmosphere.
On the other hand, Veritas (Venus Emissivity, Radio Science, InSAR, Topography, and Spectroscopy), will study the planet’s surface to determine its geological history and development especially earthquakes and volcanos.
