    ESA's EnVision mission to Venus

    "ESA selects revolutionary Venus EnVision mission"

    EnVision will be ESA's next Venus orbiter, providing a holistic view of the planet from its inner core to upper atmosphere to determine how and why Venus and Earth evolved so differently. The mission was selected by ESA's Science Programme Committee on 10 June as the fifth medium-class mission in the Agency's Cosmic Vision plan, targeting a launch in the early 2030s.

    "NASA to collaborate on ESA's new Venus mission"

    https://www.spacedaily.com/reports/N...ssion_999.html

    On June 10, 2021, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced the selection of EnVision as its newest medium-class science mission. EnVision will make detailed observations of Venus to understand its history and especially understand the connections between the atmosphere and geologic processes. As a key partner in the mission, NASA provides the Synthetic Aperture Radar, called VenSAR, to make high resolution measurements of the planet's surface features.

    With significantly higher resolution than that of NASA's Magellan mission, which captured images of Venus in the early 1990s, VenSAR will improve our understanding of the planet's surface features.

    "Previewing EnVision: ESA’s newest mission to Venus"

    https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021...ion-esa-venus/

    On June 10, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced that they had selected their next mission to Venus — EnVision. The mission, set to operate alongside NASA’s newly announced DAVINCI+ and VERITAS missions, will study Earth’s sister planet in extreme detail.

    Selected as the agency’s fifth medium-class mission in their Cosmic Vision program, EnVision will use a suite of specially designed radars and instruments to map the surface of Venus and understand how the planet evolved so much differently from Earth. Additionally, EnVision hopes to answer questions regarding Venus’ past, present, and future geologic and tectonic activity, and how it may effect Venus’ environment.


    Led by Dr. Richard Ghail of the University of London, EnVision is currently set to launch in the early 2030s on an Ariane 6 rocket from Kourou, French Guiana.
