The DAVINCI Mission is on its way to study Venus, the second planet from the Sun. IT will start in 2029 and its goal will be to understand the chemical composition and whether humans can inhabit it.
The Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble gases, Chemistry, and Imaging (DAVINCI) mission from the American space agency NASA will dive through Venus’ atmosphere and consume the different atmospheric gases at various altitudes before landing.
It hopes to measure the amount of oxygen present near the surface of the plant. As well as detecting Venus’ temperature and take a few photos.
“Understanding how much oxygen is contained in Venus’ atmosphere will be important in preparation for characterizing Venus-like worlds beyond our solar system with the JWST and future observatories. How much oxygen Venus has in its deepest atmosphere will help scientists study these remote worlds,” NASA said in a statement.
