Venus will obtain double the additional interest. NASA’s Solar Orbiter, in collaboration with the European Area Firm (ESA), will certainly focus in on Venus on Aug. 9, however it will not be alone for long. An additional ESA spacecraft, BepiColombo (a collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Expedition Firm, JAXA) will zip the world simply someday later on. 

The spacecraft are both headed towards the internal planetary system. Solar Orbiter released in 2020 with a goal to research study the sun, while BepiColombo released in 2018 and also has actually been en course to Mercury since.
