Astronomy Science ~ For decades, landing on Mars has captured the imagination of the inhabitants of Earth as an obvious next step in space exploration after landing on the moon, but NASA is also looking for ways to send a manned mission to our neighboring planet which is more frightening - Venus.

Researchers at NASA's Langley facility has developed High Altitude Venus Operational Concept (Havoc) as a possible means to explore Venus. Havoc which is basically a balloon and filled by two astronauts on a mission for a month to float around the atmosphere of the planet Venus.

Exploring Venus is very difficult because of the sulfuric acid in the atmosphere, its surface temperature is very hot until it can melt lead and destroying the air pressure on the surface. Driving balloons not only avoid all these dangerous obstacles, but also makes a relatively simple way to explore our neighboring planet without the cost and hassle to arrange a landing, takeoff and gliding up.

According to the engineers who worked on the concept of Havoc, the astronauts will live and work in the habitat of a floating hot air balloon attached to the vehicles that are likely to be filled with helium to keep them floating high. This vehicle will be floating about 50 miles from the surface of Venus.

Team Havoc claims that Venus is an excellent environment for the vehicle to fly like a plane or a balloon over the Earth, thanks to the heavy Venusian atmosphere.

In this mission, the pilot will not bring air balloon like "zeppelins" all the way Venus-Earth. Exploration of the second planet from the sun will begin with unmanned missions to Venus's atmosphere to test the technology and study the atmosphere before sending a human.

A spacecraft would carry a manned crew to Venus will then be sent to meet with the existing orbited vehicle on Venus. One vehicle will then descend to the planet's atmosphere, deploying and inflating a hot air balloon at the proper height. Team Havoc imagine the potential of human settlements "anchored" in the atmosphere of Venus as a kind of base, unlike the International Space Station, this is even more permanent colony.

At this time, no manned missions to Venus are planned by NASA. The concept was designed by the agency Havoc Systems Analysis and Concepts Directorate, but NASA who will take the decision. Nonetheless, it is interesting to note that a manned mission to Venus at least already on the table, but it will take a long time to convince the US government to take the decision.

You can see the concept Havoc on the video below:
