A Venus-bound mission from NASA will carry a tiny sensor built by students to the planet’s hellish surface

NASA’s DAVINCI mission to Venus will carry a dime-sized, student-built sensor to study the planet’s near-surface environment.

The DAVINCI (Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble gasses, Chemistry, and Imaging) mission, which is slated to launch in 2029, aims to investigate Venus’ atmosphere-climate system and shed new light on the scorching planet’s potentially habitable past. It is the first Venus mission that will use both spacecraft flybys and a descent probe.
