Venus hides a wealth of information that could help us better understand Earth and exoplanets, or those planets outside our solar system. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is designing mission concepts to survive the planet’s extreme temperatures and atmospheric pressure. This image is a composite of data from NASA’s Magellan spacecraft and Pioneer Venus Orbiter.

金星隐藏着丰富的信息,可以帮助我们更好地了解地球和系外行星。NASA喷气推进实验室正在设计任务概念,以在地球极端温度和大气压力下生存。这张图片是美国宇航局麦哲伦飞船和先驱金星轨道探测器的数据合成。

Venus is Earth’s nearest planetary neighbor. The two new Discovery Program missions to study our neighbor aim to understand how Venus became an inferno-like world when it has so many other characteristics similar to ours – and may have been the first habitable world in the solar system, complete with an ocean and Earth-like climate.

金星是地球最近的行星邻居。研究我们邻居的两项新的发现计划任务旨在了解金星是如何成为一个类似地狱的世界,而它有如此多的其他特征与我们相似——而且可能是太阳系中第一个宜居世界,有海洋和类似地球的气候。
