There’s a reason why we’re focused on colonizing Mars rather than Venus: the latter is absolutely inhospitable. Its atmosphere is 96 percent carbon dioxide and in terms of pressure, 92 times stronger than Earth’s. That’s not counting the fact that the planet is the hottest in our solar system.

But NASA scientists might have cracked how to make  what it takes to keep electronics functioning on the sulfuric planet.Needless to say, getting a computer to Venus  work on Venus’ surface is a challenge.

Scientists from NASA’s Glenn Research how to make  Center tossed an electronics  oscillator into the Glenn Extreme Environments Rig,Prior to this, Venus any such equipment would require “pressure vessels and/or cooling systems” to keep sensitive electronics safe.

How’d it fare? Pretty how to make  well cranked the machine up to Venus-levels of heat and pressure and waited to see electronics what happened.  . withstood the Venus harsh elements with aplomb. Some 521 hours later, the oscillator was removed.The interconnect wires, when combined with silicon how to make   carbide chips and protected by ceramics,

All told, this should dramatically increase the amount of data we can glean about the planet’s caustic When you consider the previous record how to electronics  make  of Venus survival on Venus’ surface was two hours and seven minutes on the Soviet craft Venera 13 in 1982, this is even more impressive. how to make   environment, and help supplementelectronics  NASA’s plan for airship Venus cities floating above Venus.
