Class Description

The planet Venus is Earth's twin in terms of size, mass, and gravity, but it is very different in terms of surface conditions and atmospheric composition.  NASA learned a lot from the 1990s Magellan orbiter, but why is Venus so different?  Join Professors David Williams of ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration for a discussion of what we know about Venus, and what we will learn from NASA's two new planned missions returning to Venus, DAVINCI+ and VERITAS.
