A NASA mission, according to foreign media, is trying to boldly explore a place that has not been thoroughly explored by previous spacecraft--the surface of Venus. Wired earlier on Wednesday reported this Long-Lived In-situ Solar System Explorer (LLISSE) that will be used for Venus tasks.
It is reported that the probe is scheduled to be built and tested in 2023 to enable it to explore the dangerous conditions on the surface of Venus for up to 60 days in the future, including extremely high temperatures, tornado winds and high pressure.
According to wired, each part of llisse will be designed to survive the harsh conditions on the surface of Venus, compared with the last spacecraft launched in 1966, which only lasted a few hours. The new spacecraft will be designed as a very small cube less than 10 inches long on each side, but it will contain the tools needed to test Venus' atmosphere and geology.
In an interview with Wired, Tibor Kremic, director of the Space Science Program Office at the Glenn Research Center in Ohio, said LLISSE was founded on the Venera-D mission. It is reported that Venera-D is a joint project of NASA and the Russian Space Agency, which will include a Venus orbiter and two landers. However, the mission, originally scheduled for 2013, has now been postponed to 2026 or later.
