Title: Cheap Astronomy – Dear Cheap Astro #63: Hot Air

Organization: Cheap Astronomy

Links: http://cheapastro.com

Description: An uplifting episode about balloon missions

Is there a new Venus mission coming?

Yes, although not before 2026 and quite possibly not before 2030. It’s currently called Venera-D.

What do you make of balloon missions in the Solar System?

A balloon is an encapsulated space that has less density than the surrounding medium. Hence in a gravity field it will rise upwards, displaced by denser air pulled downwards by the gravity field.
