Raumfahrt - Neue NASA-Technologie kann viel länger in der atmosphärischen Hölle von Venus existieren


New NASA tech can survive much longer on the atmospheric hellscape that is Venus


For up to 521 hours, or 100 times longer than beforeSurviving in Venus-like conditions is near impossible, even for machinery. The surface temperature is about 860 degrees Fahrenheit and the carbon dioxide rich-air has an atmospheric pressure about 90 times that of Earth. Just moving around on Venus would feel as if you were under water and deep underground, if the heat didn’t already obliterate your equipment. NASA, however, may have found a novel solution in the form of more resistant electronics
