A problem of determining attainable landing sites on the surface of Venus is an essential part of the Venera-D project aimed to explore the planet using a lander.

If not for the soupy, fast-moving atmosphere on Venus, Earth's sister planet would likely not rotate.

Despite being close to Earth and having nearly the same size, Venus is another world.

On a flyby of Venus, NASA's Parker Solar Probe captured the first visible light images of the cloudy planet's surface from space, a new study reports.

Venus hides a wealth of information that could help us better understand Earth and exoplanets, or those planets outside our solar system.

New modeling suggests large, high-speed impacts during Venus' early history could reconcile the differences between Venus and its rocky sister planet, Earth.

Ten Mysteries of Venus

The surface of Venus is completely inhospitable for life: barren, dry, crushed under an atmosphere about 90 times the pressure of Earth's and roasted by temperatures two times hotter than an oven. But was it always that way?

On Aug. 9, 2021, ESA/NASA's Solar Orbiter spacecraft passed within 4,967 miles (7,995 kilometers) of the surface of planet Venus.

The joint European-Japanese BepiColombo mission captured this view of Venus on 10 August 2021 as the spacecraft passed the planet for a gravity assist manoeuvre.

New data analysis techniques allow evidence of recent volcanism to be found in old Magellan spacecraft data.

ESA Gets Ready For Double Venus Flyby

The two spacecraft need the gravitational swingby to help them lose a little orbital energy in order to reach their destinations towards the centre of the Solar System.

The Weather Forecast For Venus

Little is known about the weather at night on Venus as the absence of sunlight makes imaging difficult.

Traces of the gas phosphine point to volcanic activity on Venus, according to new research from Cornell University.

A new analysis of Venus' surface shows evidence of tectonic motion in the form of crustal blocks that have jostled against each other like broken chunks of pack ice.

Although Earth and Venus are similar in size and location, they are very different worlds today. While Earth has oceans of water and abundant life, Venus is dry and fiercely inhospitable.

During a brief swing by Venus, NASA's Parker Solar Probe detected a natural radio signal that revealed the spacecraft had flown through the planet's upper atmosphere.

How Long Is A Day On Venus?

Venus is an enigma. It's the planet next door and yet reveals little about itself.

Fundamental properties of the planet Venus, such as its internal mass distribution and variations in length of day, have remained unknown.

NASA's Parker Solar Probe captured stunning views of Venus during its close flyby of the planet in July 2020.

At some point between 300 million and 1 billion years ago, a large cosmic object smashed into the planet Venus, leaving a crater more than 170 miles in diameter.
