NASA will launch 2 new Venus missions by 2030 to return to Earth’s hellish twin

NASA will send two new missions to Venus to learn more about how the planet’s hellish atmosphere became so hostile because of its history.

The announcement was made Wednesday (June 2) during a live broadcast of NASA Administrator Bill Nelson’s speech on the state of NASA. The two missions, named DAVINCI + and VERITAS, were selected from NASA’s shortlist of four spacecraft for next round of Discovery missions; two other contenders have visited Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io and Neptune’s largest moon Triton.
