Venus Exploration
Tuesday, August 3rd 2021

Anchor 1

A renaissance in in situ Venus exploration is underway with concepts for classic probe missions, aerial platforms, lander and rover missions all being actively considered. This session includes both the scientific platform technologies and the experiments that will be conducted from them. Of particular interest are innovative techniques for exploring Venus that employ methods for coping with and/or exploiting its severe environment. With the intriguing question of whether phosphine exists in the cloud layer of Venus still being debated, platforms and techniques that can explore the “cloud habitability zone” will be of great interest.
