ESA planned to head Venus with the EnVision mission

The European Space Agency (ESA) has planned to head to Venus with its mission EnVision which will study the history, climate, and geological activity of Venus. Europe’s science head says missions will keep researchers “at the forefront” of their field.

Carole Mundell, head of science at ESA, said these ground-breaking missions will take them to the next level in exciting areas of space science and keep European researchers at the top of their fields.

Thomas Voirin is the study manager for the EnVision mission at ESA. According to Thomas, the ESA chose a mission in 2021. They have gone from having broad science goals to having a detailed mission plan.

Furthermore, Thomas stated they are excited to take the next step. EnVision will investigate long-standing questions about Venus, one of the least known planets in their solar system.

The Envision Venus mission will be launched on ESA’s new Ariane 6 rocket launcher. However, the rocket has been under development for almost ten years and will be ready for use this year.

The Envision project of ESA will be Europe’s second planned trip to head Venus. It will begin in 2031. This will study the planet in more detail than ever before and its entirety from its inner core to its upper atmosphere. However, the previous Venus Express project looked at the planet’s surface from 2005 to 2014.

Venus is Earth’s nearest friend, much closer than Mars. In terms of mass and size, Venus has more similarities to Earth. However, it is not an easy plan to visit like Earth is. Because it has the densest atmosphere of all rocky worlds in the solar system. It is covered in thick clouds, mostly made of sulfuric acid.

Hence, Sulfuric acid is a highly resistant chemical to humans. It may cause serious breathing problems and even damage the stomach. However, Its most common side effect is skin burns.
