China recently shared information about its Venus mission.
After successful migration Marsdiscover Moon and build a Space station, China Has its eyes set on the planet Venus. According to information shared during the July 9 conference, while discussing the mission called Venus Volcano Imaging and Climate Explorer (Voice), China said it will launch the spacecraft in 2026 and it will to orbit around the solar system’s hottest and brightest planet by 2027.
The mission is targeted to study the geological evolution of Venusthermal and chemical processes occurring in the planet’s atmosphere and interactions between face and atmosphere. In addition, it will also read the possibility of a habitable environment and life on the surface of Venus using a polar orbit at 220 miles (350 km).
The instruments sent by China will include an S-band polarized synthetic aperture radar that can observe the Venusian cloud and map its surface. Furthermore, there will also be a multi-hemisphere imager that can observe Venus in ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared wavelengths.
The Voice of China mission is one of 13 candidate missions under the Third Strategic Priority Program (SPP) in Space Science led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It will compete with the electron-type asteroid sample return mission, low-Earth orbit climate and atmospheric components exploration satellite mission and Ocean Surface Multivariate Observation Mission.
Voiceovers will also include the ongoing Tianwen 1 Mars Mission and the planned Tianwen 2 near-Earth sample return missions. If selected, Voice will join NASA missions with Venus IE, Veritas and DaVinci+, and ESA’s Envision spacecraft.
Meanwhile, California-based Rocket Lab is also aiming to launch a private Venus mission in 2023, while India is also gearing up to join the league by sending Shukrayaan orbiters into space one day. the following year. Russia has also announced plans for a mission called Venera-D, scheduled to launch in 2029.
