NASA’S Strategic Return to Venus

NASA’s has successfully built a Strategic plan to return to Venus, expressing new interest in space exploration launching two spacecraft to study the fluctuations in the environment which once posed Earth-like, and favorable.

The NASA’s had allocated an initial grant of $1 billion for sending the first U.S. probes to be launched into Venus in about 30 years, enabling the study indicating the causes for the change in Earth’s nearest neighbor into an inhospitable environment for life to sustain.The two spacecraft to be sent are built by Lockheed Martin Corp. selected by to understand the planet’s geology and the runaway greenhouse effect shaping the atmosphere.

Studies conducted have concluded that the planet’s environment has become hotter, resulting in tremendous ocean evaporation. This new development further has increased the temperature so much that metals like lead could melt.The interests in space exploration have led to countries like Japan, and India and private entrepreneurs, to optimize missions to Venus. NASA’s meanwhile is dedicating two spacecraft later in the decade in exploring the geology and hospitability with any chances of life sustenance on Venus.

The plan established by Lockheed Martin to launch spacecraft by the end of the decade falls under the public-private partnership model of NASA’s, parallel to the program resuming returning astronauts to the moon. A similar goal-associated plan witnessed the building of spacecraft by a company’s predecessor used on Magellan mission in 1989 to map Venus.
