It will also sample its chemistry, temperature, pressure, and winds. Moreover, it will also be taking high-resolution images of Alpha Regio which is an ancient highland.
The probe will be launched in 2030. It will conduct two flybys to study and map the surface composition of Venus for a period of two years. The DAVINCI+ probe will then enter Venus’ atmosphere during a descent that will last about an hour before landing at Alpha Regio.
