NASA Selects Two Discovery Missions to Venus

NASA Selects 2 Missions to Study 'Lost Habitable' World of Venus

"NASA has selected two new missions to Venus, Earth's nearest planetary neighbor.

Part of NASA's Discovery Program, the missions aim to understand how Venus became an inferno-like world when it has so many other characteristics similar to ours - and may have been the first habitable world in the solar system, complete with an ocean and Earth-like climate.

These investigations are the final selections from four mission concepts NASA picked in February 2020 as part of the agency's Discovery 2019 competition. Following a competitive, peer-review process, the two missions were chosen based on their potential scientific value and the feasibility of their development plans. The project teams will now work to finalize their requirements, designs, and development plans."
