TSU scientists refine the map of Venus for Roscosmos and NASA


Specialists of the TSU Faculty of Geology and Geography and colleagues from Carleton University (Canada) are compiling detailed maps of fragments of the surface of Venus. This will help to choose the future landing site for the orbiter with a sampling probe in the Venera-D research mission.

Venera-D is a joint project of Roscosmos and NASA to send an orbiter and lander to Venus to determine the composition of the material of surface structures and understand the geological processes that formed the surface of this planet. The flight is scheduled for the period between 2026 and 2033.
