Venus Exploration Strategy Document

We seek community input for the Venus Exploration Strategy Document discussed and revised at the 2023 VEXAG meeting.  The draft white paper is now available for community review at this link. Lend your voice and support to support the Decades of Venus!  The final update of the document will be presented at LPSC 2024.




VEXAG seeking new Steering Committee members


The VEXAG steering committee is composed of 14-20 volunteer community members (depending on year and workload) plus Chair and Deputy Chair along with the Prior Chair. This small group seeks to be representative of the full spectrum of the Venus community. Applicants are required to send a current CV, and short ~1-page statement of interest, goals, and experience to the Steering Committee (e-mailed to Chair). Nominees may select a preferred Jan or July start time and that will be taken into consideration.  Review and voting on new SC members takes place in the December SC meeting.  More information can be found at the following link:




VEXAG seeking new Scribe


The Scribe is a non-voting (and generally non-participating) note-taker for monthly VEXAG Steering Committee meetings, and also the annual meeting and town halls as needed.  VEXAG is looking for a new Scribe to start after the annual meeting on October 30-31.  Please nominate yourself by contacting the VEXAG Chair at to express your interest.
