The nefarious moniker is revealed to be, in a way, an apt description of why astronomers will be investigating Venus this decade.

Scientists and engineers from NASA and the European Space Agency are gearing up to send three new missions to the second rock from the sun.

There is NASA's DAVINCI, short for Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble Gases, Chemistry and Imaging, which includes two major components.

First and foremost is a spacecraft that will fly by Venus, capturing data about the planet's clouds and its terrain, in addition to acting as a telecommunications hub for the mission.

Second is a special descent probe, which will drop down through Venus' thick atmosphere and collect data as it journeys through the perilous environment.

Specifically, it will study Venus' hostile atmosphere and its inner core to see how both planets could form in the same part of the solar system and with the same stuff, yet yield wildly different realities.
