Sometimes, you can't go to Starbucks, so you buy their coffee beans and make it at home. You have Starbucks come to you. Well, scientists did the same thing, but with the planet Venus.
Scientists at NASA have created a testing chamber that can recreate the atmosphere of Venus. This will help them create a probe that can withstand the toxic, 855 degrees Fahrenheit, 89-times-the-pressure-of-Earth atmosphere of Venus.
The last lander sent there was Soviet Union's Venera 13, which remained intact for 127 minutes. And that was thirty years ago.
But with this chamber, scientists hope to create a rover that can last much, much longer. The chamber will simulate the temperature, pressure and corrosive gases (mostly carbon dioxide and sulfuric acid) of Venus, as well as its clouds of hydrogen fluoride gas, which can destroy metal and glass as easily as you might crumple a piece of loose leaf.
Without a probe that can withstand these conditions, sending another mission to Venus is fairly unjustifiable and probably won't happen.
NASA hopes the chamber will also allow them to recreate the conditions of the Martian equator, Saturn's moons and Jupiter's atmosphere.
