The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said on the air of the Solovyov LIVE program that Russia and the United States had approved plans to send a joint mission to Venus.
Rogozin said that the joint mission has already been agreed with the US government.
It was the Soviet apparatus that landed there. But now we are going to put a mission there, it is called “Venera-D” – a joint Russian-American mission
According to Rogozin, partner work in this direction will help simplify the mission in terms of economics, technology and science. “Here it is easier to solve such issues jointly, together, crossing the talents of our scientists, and at the same time it will be economically simpler, and more reliable in terms of the operation of technology, and so on. Therefore, the Americans are also interested in this ”– explained the head of Roskosmos.
