Joint project of Roscosmos and NASA for Venus research

21
According to the Internet portal mixednews.ru, Roscosmos and NASA are planning to join forces for a joint study of Venus. As part of the Venus-D mission, a long-lived artificial satellite (3 of the year of operation) and a descent module (designed for several hours of operation) will be sent to the planet. Budget constraints do not allow to increase the location of the apparatus on the planet. It is supposed to detect the microbial form of life and more thoroughly analyze the organisms that, according to one theory, live in the atmosphere of Venus. The last successful landing on the surface of the planet was made by the Soviet apparatus Vega-2 back in 1985 year.



Russia proposed this project three years ago, its discussion has been going on for two years now. In October, 2016, NASA Deputy Director Dave Newman announced NASA's interest in participating in the Venera-D program. The leading role will be assigned to Russia, its task is to develop a launch system, descent vehicle and an artificial satellite. NASA requires scientific instruments and other assistance. The final report on the preparation of the mission will be presented in February. The launch of the mission is scheduled for the second half of 2020.

NASA has previously approved two missions to Venus - VERITAS and DAVINCHI, designed primarily to study the surface and atmosphere of the planet.

    Found ... analyzed further what? Is it so vital now. what
    We’ll spend a lot of money on germs ... but in the country there are a lot of big problems requiring investment ... maybe all the same now we need to pay more attention to this.
    However, whoever will ask us ... taxes will increase, the Ministry of Finance will lower the ruble below the baseboard, and then microbes on other planets urgently need to be studied ...
    soar in alien worlds ... but we can’t bring our own to mind.

      It is necessary to maintain technical capabilities. The USSR sent descent vehicles there. Venus is much more interesting than the "dead Mars". The United States specifically engaged in Mars. There is practically no atmosphere and it’s much easier to lower the device. Political success, etc. .. But Venus and Mercury are "living planets" - in terms of science they are more interesting. Eruptions (the planet is close to the star, therefore, when passing in orbit, the planet shrinks at a minimum distance from the Sun, then “swells” at maximum - hence volcanic activity - there is such a version), an acidic atmosphere that does not allow the device to live long . Gravity there more than a hundred times, carbon dioxide, greenhouse effect, acid atmosphere, etc. .. The only successful descent allowed the device to remove the surface of Venus, but worked for minutes. I also managed to establish what I wrote above. It was a great success - the Yankees didn’t take such a “political" risk, the probability of failure is huge, those. difficulties on the descent - that's what they chose dead Mars for success. hi
      I think when the sun begins to produce the remnants of "fuel", then we will have to "push" the nearest planet into the sun to feed matter for "synthesis".

        What more? In relation to the Earth, the force of gravity on Venus is less but not by much and the size of the planet is not much different.

        Come on ! laughing It's just that we in the USSR were not lucky with the Martian program. And on Venus, albeit with costs, they worked quite well.

        Is it so vital now.

        It is not only interesting to know the venar conditions, but also useful in terms of the development of the space industry and all its attendant. Without ambitious projects, the industry will bend on the stamping of chemical missiles.

        Well, that is a given . They will remove the remaining foam from us, as with a rover, and will spread around the world about their technological superiority. Today, a medical fact is that with the availability of money, they have stagnated in the development of space.

      We’ll spend a lot of money on microbes ... but there are a lot of big problems in the country now

      We climb down a tree, walk on two legs along the savannah, and then what? Is it so vital now? And there are enough problems on the tree!

      Suggest sitting on a branch?

      When the Americans needed something, they wanted to spit on the sanctions that they themselves had imposed. Your interest is more expensive than politics.

    The indestructible union of the USA and the USSR is growing stronger laughing , since the long-lived Venus-D project is Soviet project.

    True, in USSR developed a landing machine designed for 24 hours work on Venus (the goal is to study seismic), and advanced Russia can overpower only a few hours.

    I don’t goof without a dupe - the old Soviet devices of the Venus series were on the planet longer! fool Already these technologies and development profoucans? crying

    Hurried.) Not gravity but atmospheric pressure there about 100 atm. Let's be fair, the most accurate sensors are made by the USA, and unfortunately for now we have to cooperate with them. Critics of Soviet superiority will only say that the life of the device is limited to these sensors. Amer’s sensors = low survivability. I hope our designers will spy on what is needed and we will still see our radiation-protected microchips. hi

    You can develop anything you want. The main thing is that this has not been implemented. And by the way, if you master several hours of work on the surface - it will be a huge leap in the reliability of the device

    And who was on the planet longer. maximum operating time of the descent vehicle - 127 minutes

    "The leading role will be assigned to Russia, its task is to develop a launch system, a descent vehicle and an artificial satellite."
    We have been assigned the "leading" role of the cabman ...... "We pass on the fare!".
