    Successful Venus missions

    "Here's every successful Venus mission humanity has ever launched"

    Did not realize USSR had an active Venus focus.

    The planet Venus used to be thought of as a "twin planet" to Earth, with potential lush jungles lurking underneath the clouds. Telescopes and spacecraft instead revealed a hellish, volcanic environment with a dense atmosphere that can crush unprotected machines in moments. But we are learning much about Venus over the years.

    This slideshow shows every successful Venus mission in history, according to NASA, skipping over those spacecraft that missed the target, lost communication before arriving or otherwise failed. Descriptions of each mission are drawn from the NASA website, with all dates given in GMT.

    And now "Russia" is claiming it

    Russia has some strong feelings about the planet Venus. Dmitry Rogozin, the chief of Roscosmos, Russia's space agency, spoke at the 2020 HeliRussia exhibition and declared that Venus is a "Russian planet," according to the Russian news agency TASS. (It's not.)

    This comes after the groundbreaking announcement on Monday that researchers have spotted potential evidence of life high in the clouds of Venus. The scientists found chemical signatures of a molecule called phosphine, which is only produced by living things or in places where there's high heat and pressure. Since Venus isn't subjected to high heat or high pressure, life might have just found a way.
