ISRO beats NASA on Venus mission; will send spacecraft to twin Earth
ISRO is set to beat NASA in sending a spacecraft to Venus. Both space agencies aim to reach Venus as soon as possible, but ISRO president S. Somanath announced that a plan is in place for a near-real-looking approach to Earth.
The Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO) is planning another big mission and this time it will be on Venus, the Earth looks the same. And what makes this mission even more exciting is that ISRO has the potential to beat NASA, which is planning similar missions to Venus. The two space agencies have recently been caught up in another battle, with ISRO also looking to beat NASA in landing a rover on the far side of the Moon. But unlike the Moon mission, the Venus expedition will measure India’s ability to carry out a mission to any planet in our solar system.
As reported by India Today, the main goal of the mission will be to study the atmosphere of Venus. The planet’s atmosphere is quite toxic as it is corrosive and toxic, along with clouds of sulfuric acid that cover the entire planet. ISRO President S Somanath had been planning this mission for many years now, but finally the mission was ready and the necessary funds for exploration and exploration were seamlessly provided. This mission inspired the people of the United States to go on a mission to Venus and try to understand how the planet became a hell.
ISRO vs NASA: Race to Venus
On the global stage, India has emerged as one of the leading contributors to the facilitation of cheaper interplanetary missions. Therefore, Venus is next on the country’s list, which includes future asteroid exploration plans. The aforementioned one-day conference, organized by ISRO, became the platform to discuss the various goals of the orbiter mission and consider any observations that would be made that would not be made. scale in the past.
The ISRO President believes that the mission will only be commended if it turns out to be unique, similar to what happened in the Mangalyaan and Chandrayaan missions. “The goal was to see what unique additional knowledge observations could be made and see that we are not repeating what has all been done. It is not a crime to repeat some of them, but if we bring uniqueness, it will have a global impact. S. Somnath says it will only be praised if it is unique, like Chandrayaan and the Mars mission.
NASA is planning similar missions to Venus. Spending nearly $1 billion, the US space agency has initiated two projects, DAVINCI+ and VERITAS, that will see a spacecraft head towards Venus between 2028 and 2030. The mission will explore how. Venus becomes a hell-like world when it has many of the same characteristics. to Earth.
