ISRO plans mission to Venus in 2024
Feel free to discuss about India's future mission to Venus, aka the Shukrayaan (lit. 'Venus craft') program.After successfully sending missions to the Moon and Mars, the ISRO is now readying a spacecraft to orbit Venus to study what lies below the surface of the solar system's hottest planet, and also unravel the mysteries under the sulfuric acid clouds enveloping it. Addressing a day-long meeting on Venusian science, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman S Somnath said the Venus mission has been conceived, a project report made and "money identified".
Sidenote: It is a weird coincidence that I came to know about this Venus mission in Shukravar (Friday; lit. 'Venus day').
