Not limited to any other region of the world, Russia now claims on Venus that it is a “Russian planet”.
This week, Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space corporation Roscommon, revealed that he plans to send his own mission to Venice in addition to the planned joint mission “Venera-D” with the United States, Russia’s state news agency TASS reported.
Rogozin was speaking to reporters at the Moscow Helicopter International Expo Helicopter 2020 exhibition.
“Friday’s re-investigation is on our agenda,” he told reporters on Tuesday.
“We think Venus is a planet in Russia, so we shouldn’t lag behind,” he said.
“The Venice mission projects are included in Russia’s joint government space exploration program for 2021-2030.”
The statement came days after scientists revealed that a gas called phosphine was also trapped in Earth’s atmosphere.
Venus is similar in size to the planet and is a neighbor of our nearest planet, but it spins backwards compared to other planets.
The study, written by Cardiff University professor Jane Graves and her colleagues, was published in the journal Nature Astronomy on Monday.
Cigar said the discovery of phosphine on Venus elevated our solar system to areas of interest such as Mars as well as Enceladus and the “water world” of Europe as well as the moon.
“The impact of our expectations on the planetary science community is research on the possibilities of life in the atmosphere of Venus, even focusing on finding life or even signs of life in the atmosphere of Venus, even on space missions,” Cigar said.
According to the European Space Agency, the Russians have a significant experience when it comes to Venus.
Its website states: “Venetian research in Russia from 1967-18464 was at the top of international research on the planet.
“Since then, Russia still preserves its unique expertise in the design and development of landing crafts for Venus and continues to define scientific works for that craft.”
