Time to start whipping up a batch of borscht. Russia or at least the chief of its space agency has declared that Venus is a Russian planet and that it will send its own mission to the second planet from the sun.
This declaration comes after a recent scientific study found hints that life could exist on Venus, which is famously known for its hellish atmosphere.

In the era of Artificial Intelligence and supercomputers, it’s at least peculiar not to be able to go to another planet. Despite the fact that distances…
Asteroid samples escaping from jammed NASA spacecraft – Sydney Morning Herald
The sample container on the end of the robot arm penetrated so deeply into the asteroid and with such force that rocks became wedged around the rim of the lid.
We’re almost a victim of our own success here, Lauretta said at a hastily arranged news conference.
Lauretta said there is nothing flight controllers can do to clear the obstructions and prevent more bits of Bennu from escaping, other than to get the samples into their return capsule as soon as possible.
