A Program of Mission to Venus Has Been Prepared in India

India, having launched three planetary scientific ships, already scrutinizes Venus as a new destination. Scientists and engineers of ISRO made and presented to the Indian government the plans for the orbital device Venus, reports a correspondent with the reference to

"The main goal consists in making the card of the Venusian surface and subsoil", said Nigar Shaji, an ISRO scientist.

According to the Indian scientist, the orbital device Venus Orbiter designed by ISRO, can really be made within a year. Apart from mapping of the Venus surface, the Indian space agency is going to identify the volcanic hot spots scattered across all Venus.

For now, ISRO has already defined 16 tools necessary for work on Venus. These devices will study the atmosphere and the ionosphere of the planet directly onboard the spacecraft. In particular, they will monitor clouds, identify strokes of lightnings, study air luminescence of the planet and measure the high-charged particles of plasma.

Indian scientists have already got several offers from international partners. If the government of India approves the mission, the spacecraft will be launched in June 2023. It will fly on a geosynchronous space carrier rocket ISRO. The type of carrier is the same as the one which launched the Indian Moon mission Chandrayaan 2 this summer.

For your information: ISRO is the Indian Space Research Organisation subordinated to the Indian National Committee for Space Research.
