NASA will send two new missions to Venus to learn more about how the planet’s hellish atmosphere turned so hostile over its history.The world’s first commercial astronomy mission, Twinkle, is gaining traction among exoplanet researchers as it takes steps toward launch in 2024 with funding secured to commence satellite construction early next year.

The announcement came on Wednesday (June 2) during NASA administrator Bill Nelson’s livestreamed State of NASA speech. The two missions, called DAVINCI+ and VERITAS were selected from NASA’s shortlist of four spacecraft for the next round of Discovery missions; the other two contenders would have visited Jupiter’s volcanic moon Io and Neptune’s largest moon Triton.
