NEW DELHI, NOVEMBER 12: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) invites foreign experiments for the upcoming 2023 Venus mission. The space agency made an offer for the international space community to present its scientific burdens.
In the mid-2023 'Mission Venus & # 39; ISRO, which is marked as temporary to be called, invited international offers on the rocket for scientific loads that would initiate an orbit of Venus.
Orbiter will have 12 instruments including a thermal imager, mass spectrometer and cloud monitoring camera. The spaceship will be able to carry approximately 100 kg and will be 500W according to the ISRO.
The mission of the Venus will be planted in a steep slope around the planet and will allow it to come closer within a few months. In an elliptical orbit, it will eventually be 60,000 km away from Venus at its far end, and the closest one is 500 km away, and in 2013 is similar to the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).
The task will focus on studying the surface of the planet, its atmospheric chemistry and its impact on solar radiation.
In the statement published on its website, ISRO said, "From the international scientific community, suggestions were made for new space based experiments to investigate specific areas of science interest in Venus.
This AO has a specific goal of defining important science experiments that reinforce / complement general science from the preselected package of offers from India in ISRO's Venus mission.
The proposals are expected to develop experiments in the field of science research and field testing based on field research studies, as well as providing access to relevant facilities for testing and device calibration.
The ISRO said that bids by midnight on December 20, 2018 will be accepted.
ISRO, in Venus, determined the broad research interests of the planet, including researching surface / sub-surface properties and resurfacing processes; atmospheric chemistry, dynamics and composition variations; and interact with solar radiation / solar wind.
In September 2014, MOM created history in space when Mars successfully entered its orbit, thus becoming the fourth space agency to enter Mars & # 39;
The ISRO's Manganese 2 & # 39; The next Mars mission can be between 2018-2020. Along with a larger scientific load on Mars, the mission will probably consist of a land and a Mars cruise.
