Hello Venusians!


The Aerial Platforms SAW of VEXAG is hosting a lecture next week and anyone who is interested is welcome to attend.  Please register at the link below, or use the QR code at the bottom of the email.



Details (also available on the webpage)

Speaker: Maxim de Jong, Thin Red Line Aerospace

Talk title: Mechanical Compression Altitude Control and Elevated Temperature Balloon Technology for Venus

Time: November 16, 2023, 2pm Pacific

Abstract: The Venus science community desires aerobot access to below the Venus cloud deck. However, access to 40 km altitude, for example, presents numerous significant hurdles for vehicle design, most notably a high 145°C operational environment. This seminar describes Thin Red Line’s most recent advances in enabling sub-cloud layer access on Venus through development of several aerial vehicle technologies such as altitude control through mechanical compression and extreme temperature flexible and impermeable gas barrier membranes.
