A lot of work and research has been done on the exploration of certain phenomena in space and the possibilities of colonization of our neighboring planets. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has developed a huge fascination with the idea of taking humans to another planet and is determined to make it happen. In addition to Mars, he also observed other planets with his later focus on Venus, which resulted in several probes being sent to investigate the planet in partnership with the Soviet Union.
Elon Musk leaked one of the probes he found on Venus. Soviet probe See if life could flourish on a planet we don’t know about Join us as we find out why Elon Musk leaked what the Soviet probe discovered on Venus, named Love and Beauty It was named after the Roman goddess.
Scientists and researchers named this planet Venus because it was the brightest of the five known to ancient astronomers. In fact it was once called Aphrodite by Ancy. Venus was considered by the Greeks of the time to be the morning to evening star, previously visible at sunset and sunrise, these stars were known as Vespa and Lucifer respectively, but were replaced by new technological devices Was. That changed with the scientists working under Elon Musk.
Venus is slightly smaller than the Earth but like the Earth the surface of Venus cannot be seen clearly due to thick clouds. But Elon Musk being a genius, he was sent a Soviet probe along with the Soviet Union to Elon Musk’s planet. was sent to send. The Soviet Union was attempting to explore Venus, so at the beginning of the Space Age, they built a series of spacecraft to explore the atmosphere of Venus, a program called the Venero program between 1961 and 1983.
The purpose of the Venera mission, organized by the Soviet Union, was to explore Venus, but 13 of the 26 spacecraft were successfully launched into the Venusian atmosphere and eight successfully landed on Venus and its surface, despite a few unsuccessful attempts to land on it. The first probe to send back data was Venera 7 with its landing in December 1970, the closest it made to entering the planet’s atmosphere before deploying parachutes to help decelerate.
Its descent towards the surface but unfortunately the parachute burst and failed during descent, a hard rumble before lending the nearest seven to freely fall at extreme speed for 29 minutes on the Venusian surface, scientist Soviet Union monitored the probe, it stopped sending signals but when it was signed off they later analyzed the recorded radio signals, finding that the probe survived the fall and continued to transmit poor signals for another 23 minutes to continue.
Scientists believe that the reason for the weak signal may be that the spacecraft turned on its side at the time of landing. As soon as the antenna stopped pointing to Earth, the lander measured a surface inclination of about 90 degrees, regardless of its position. Fahrenheit, or in simple terms as hot as a brick pizza oven, as the spacecraft touched down on Venice’s surface, its precious sensor failed and left researchers with an estimated surface pressure of around 92 bars. Being able to feel on Earth if you’re submerged in half a mile of water is something the Soviet Union spared no effort to discover.
Venus though when they came out with the Venera 9 and Venera 10. 9 and 10 landed on Venus five years later and took a 180-degree panorama of the planet’s surface. The artistic view you see was created by Ted Strick who superimposed images in a panorama taken by Lender to show what the planet would look like if an astronaut were standing on Venus orbiting it. The scene was created by interchanging individual images in a panorama to present the surface at a more natural angle.
Therefore sampling each image separately by distance from the loaner and using the data to fill in any gaps remaining after this process, the objects in the image are natural, but the arrangement is not to see more features of this planet, The Soviet Union went on to build more space probes and Venera 14 provided the Venera 14 Silvia lander with what they wanted In March 1982 the Venera 14 Silvia lander was parachuted and air-braked through the dense Venusian atmosphere.
It also took a picture of its atmosphere in the empty area. It showed flat rocks a featureless sky near the charge, but regio near the equator of Venus and the large empty area at lower left shows the spacecraft’s penetrometer as it makes scientific measurements. Is or is the light piece on the right part of an exiting lens cap. The solid Venera spacecraft, with a temperature of 450 °C and a pressure 75 times that of Earth, operated for about an hour, although data from the Venera 14 spacecraft was sent to the Solar System nearly 40 years ago.
The spacecraft’s images and digital processing are still done today and recent analysis of infrared measurements taken by ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft suggests that active volcanoes may currently exist on the planet. The theory turned out to be accurate Zella Kasturi and the Soviet Union with its mission research and tests on the atmosphere of Venus showed Venus to be the most volcanic planet in the entire S. Solar system of 1600 significant volcanoes have been detected throughout the planet.
There are still thousands more that have not yet been discovered, a large part of the planet is covered by volcanic deposits some 200 million years old and this volcanic activity played an important role in the planet’s history scientists are still debating Whether there are still active volcanoes for a number of reasons, but the planet’s dense atmosphere, led scientists to turn to radar obtained by NASA’s Magellan spacecraft to discover more about the Soviet Union’s volcanic deposits.
Scientists have developed a new method that could help solve the mysteries of volcanic activity on Venus. The approach includes geologic mapping of cooled lava flows from prior eruptions, along with additional radar data from the Magellan mission, it relies on measurements of the planet’s radar emissions that measure how its surface is exposed to microwave radiation from many parts of Venus’s Sun. The surface has shown a variety of emissions that match the properties of different rocks that give clues about their formation. This type of weathering occurs over weeks or months in the Venusian atmosphere, so it can help identify emissions.
Fresh Lava Floats Researchers from the Soviet Union combined radar penetration measurements with geological mapping to compare three Venusian volcanoes, Mart Mons Osmond and Sapasmont. Probe Venus’ volcanoes The methodology may also be needed for future Venus missions that will supply high-resolution radar emission measurements, including those of the European Space Agencies on the Sight mission and NASA’s Venous Emission Radiology in the SAR Topography and Spectroscopy mission.
Although more research was done under supervision, with this method Elon Musk’s scientists and researchers analyzed it and created a Venusian volcanic peak about 2.5 km high and 200 km wide, a volcano-rich highlands region in southern Venus. Based in IM de Reggio, the results of their research seem to suggest that there is a recent act of volcanism that scientists have observed, given the number of craters seen on other rocky planets in the Solar System. The conclusions drawn in the investigation of the Soviet Union.
That suggests the planet has fewer craters from cosmic impacts. suggest that lava from these active volcanoes may be a factor that keeps the surface of Venus clear. A better understanding of volcanic activity on Venus may help shed more light on the recent discovery of phosphine gas, which some researchers Bizarrely suggested that it may be associated with life. Possible phosphine in the atmosphere of the hellish planet Venus may be related to a recent volcanic event or one that is currently underway on the planet.
This is why finding sites of potentially active volcanic material on Venus is important in 2010. The European Space Agency’s Venus Express spacecraft was on this mission in collaboration with Elon Musk and the former Soviet Union. discovered infrared irregularities in the top and eastern parts, the discovery of this anomaly suggested the presence of fresh volcanic deposits on the planet, it is also believed that the region experienced active volcanism in the last million years, this scientists spacecraft The process of observations was traced.
They combined this data with laboratory studies of how volcanic rock changes when exposed to high surface temperatures and corrosive sulfurous carbon dioxide, for any signs of recent activity. Venus Express and NASA’s Magellan spacecraft and they confirmed the presence of recent lava flows in the hidden months Scientists analyzed atmospheric data from Venus Express They found that winds are slower than expected in the lower atmosphere in the inner region Soviet The researchers of the association proposed that it could be due to the heat.
The researchers also discovered surface fractures from recent or ongoing lava flows, which they suggested were traces of tectonic activity occurring alongside volcanic activity, which many considered a strange anomaly. What seemed like good news for Elon Musk is how a Venus-like planet that scientists confirmed does not have tectonic plates exhibits tectonic activity.
Elon Musk’s mission in collaboration with ESA’s Venus Express has proved scientists wrong by finding a number of tectonic structures from a planet that had no tectonic plates, which suddenly became a mystery to know that there were many. How and when the structures formed is important because finding out this event on Venus is essential to understanding the process that probably occurred early in Earth’s history and the evolution of other rocky planets. Venus is a planet that has been studied for a long time.
But as active volcanoes were recently detected on the planet, it has brought new questions to the debate about the surprising geology of Venus, with traces of tectonic and volcanic activity prominent ring-shaped features on the surface of Venus. also stand as evidence of ongoing change in Venus’s coronas. There are large ring-shaped features on the surface of Venus with evidence of tectonic and volcanic activity. They are characterized by unique shapes with enormous dimensions ranging from 60 to over a thousand kilometers wide, unlike any volcanoes we see here on Earth.
These large ring-shaped coronas have formed where hot magma from the depths of the planet forced its way up. Its composition results in hot material rising up through its mantle and crust to erode patches of the planet’s surface and form peculiar Corona can build structures, the head of which was signed. The vast array of shapes and structures and the purpose behind this diversity remained unclear, scientists in the Soviet Union didn’t want to give up, so they ran some simulations, the simulations showed that a Cronus shape depended on the thickness and strength of the crust.
Where the magma hits it. All simulations also show how these shapes are directly related to ac. The column of magma below the surface occurs when the computer simulates the shape of the corona changing rapidly as time goes by. Hot rising magma slows down. -slowly cools and solidifies, leading researchers to look for telltale signs of whether an area is geologically active or not. Known through signs where deep trenches and external protuberances show activity, whereas a raised rim with an internal depression indicates inactivity with the result of these conditions.
More than a hundred large coronae on Venus were classified into two groups, which formed over an active region of magma. Which is currently growing and carrying molten material or which has already cooled has become dormant, this assessment was carried out using topography data obtained from NASA’s Magellan mission in collaboration with Elon Musk on the core of the corona. The size was checked. Most of the planet was located in a belt in the southern hemisphere of Venus, the results also serve as new clues to recent widespread geological activity on the surface of Venus but about craters on the planet There are also craters on Venus but in the Solar System There are almost no empty ones now but less than a billion years ago there were still many.
These objects crashed into planets and moons after the formation of the Solar System, and this occurred during what scientists refer to as the Late Heavy Bombardment Period, a period during which Mercury and the Moon had many Craters were surprisingly made by Venus. No record of the heavy bombardment period may show that it was not hit which is a thin spell or it may be that some process resurfaced the planet removing all traces of impact craters.
The resurfacing process stopped at a specific time in the more recent history of Venus, which leads scientists to believe that the craters visible on the surface of Venus are relatively young craters on Venus that are exceptional from other craters. The dense atmosphere of the former planet Venus prevents smaller objects from reaching the planet’s surface as they would burn up in the hostile environment.
About 1,000 craters have been observed on the surface of Venus, Crater Mead is the largest of them, named after the American anthropologist Margaret Mead, the crater is 280 kilometers in diameter and has several concentric rings that could have been larger but Scientists are yet to confirm whether the planet was not affected by the bombardment or there is a process that refined the planet’s surface but the detection of corona-like geological activity on the planet’s surface will raise the next question of whether there is life on Venus. , a team of astronomers reported a recent event related to this question and stated that life forms on Venus were discovered when they found traces of Venusian microbes.
They try to observe these marks using powerful telescopes and it is here that they discover a chemical in the dense Venusian atmosphere known as phosphate. We can’t know how extraordinary it is without going back to Venus, even Sarah Stuart Johnson, a planetary scientist and head of the Johnson Bio Signature Lab at Georgetown University, has said. were not included, referring to the recent discovery of life on worlds orbiting other stars, regarding phosphine as a biosignature gas for exoplanets.
How Good to Find It on Venus As a result of the Phosphine Gas Discovery, a privately funded mission was created to observe the atmosphere of Venus, the mission aims to find out if there is actual phosphine on the planet. And to see if this could be habitable courtesy of Elon Musk, despite being a privately funded mission, it was not only Musk who was handling the project with the tech billionaire also leading the mission. It is being carried out by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Elon Musk Foundation and the Breakthrough Foundation in collaboration with SpaceX Spo. It says the principal investigators behind the project are Jewish American scientists Sarah Seager and Elon Musk, who have named the Venus Life Finder mission.
The series of projects will be based on probes sent to Venus to find out if the planet has life forms, the brainstorming started in September 2020. When a team of scientists including Sega found phosphine gas in the atmosphere of Venus, this form of gas is not life, as it is just gas, although phosphine is produced by anaerobic bacteria living in oxygen-starved environments, Due to which this discovery proved to be a matter of happiness for some people. That life though bacterial life was present on other planet but how is it possible in the scorching heat of the planet and overall unfavorable conditions, we all know that the surface of Venus is not habitable.
The cloud deck, located about 50 kilometers above the surface, is similar to the lower part of the Earth. atmosphere and could theoretically support some microbial life although there is still some disbelief in the theory as r examining the data course some scientists proposed that the theory was misinterpreted and that the molecule sulfur dioxide is a There may be gas which is very common in the clouds of Venus in science, researchers have to be sure of a particular phenomenon before acting on it to send one. The probe was required to collect samples from the cloud deck.
The mission cannot be carried out on an interstellar scale, but in the case of Venus which is closer to Earth, the mission looks more promising, with their first mission arranged to kick off in 2023 on an Electron rocket designed by California-based Rocketdyne. The rocket the lab will build in collaboration with Elon Musk’s private space agency will launch Greatness as it sends the probe on a five-month journey through the clouds for just three minutes to get the best results. Equipped with a specially designed laser instrument that defines the complex chemistry in the clouds.
If such impurities or fluorescence are detected, it is an indication that there is more to the atmosphere of Venus than we know. Scientists have already developed general theories about the atmosphere and anomalies of Venus’ clouds. Chemicals and elements are present even including some particles of unknown composition however if there is any form of life on Venus it must be microbial as the clouds are the only habitable part of the whole planet compared to other parts despite being there are part.
The planet is likely to face some challenges on a mission to Venus and one such challenge is the absolute concentration of sulfuric acid while taking samples during observation of clouds which is hundreds of times that of Earth and if these challenges are true then what are life The possibility of Venusian clouds to harbor forms and how it hosts life. SEGA has mapped out some of the answers for us, starting with these bacteria producing sulfuric acid to suppress ammonia. Although it still It is quite possible that life could exist in some way.
Completely strange to us with a form of biochemistry that favors sulfuric acid, it’s also something other scientists have thought defined what the Russians do with the Breakthrough Initiative, a program founded by Israeli billionaire Yuri Milner. Nobody knows S Life, said executive director Pete Warden, who helped finance Sega’s research. What the space probe would find on the mission Plans were already underway for a follow-up mission in 2026.
