They will explore Venus using a manta ray inspired spacecraftMarch 06, 2022
Researchers are working on a concept that could change the way we explore the intense environment of Earth’s closest planetary neighbor.
Studying Venus will help us better understand why it harbors such an extreme environment and unlock the mysteries of how planets evolve, including Earth.
A network of tensioning cables are used to actuate the pectoral and pelvic fins (equivalent to wings and horizontal stabilizers of a fixed wing aircraft, respectively). They will furnish articulated flapping flight for achieving thrust, control, stability, and additional lift.
Furthermore, the same tensioning network may be used to provide the mechanical compression required for active buoyancy control. This makes BREEZE an ideal alternate approach to the Venus.
Actually it is a bit strange that they now want to explore Venus with such a manta ray craft, since they already sent in the late 80s and 90s the Magellan spacecraft to Venus which already collected an enormous amount of images that have finally been published by NASA in which huge cities, artificial structures and all kinds of elements that seem to obey constructions appear intelligent effected by some kind of alien race that inhabited or colonized the second planet in our solar system.
