Hypothetical Space Mission: Venusian Observatory

Hello again space fans! Welcome back to another exciting adventure into the concepts of space mission design. I would apologize for the hiatus this blog has taken but I've had a busy time of things finishing off my undergraduate degree.

As you may recall here, I have finished my undergraduate degree, my Bachelor of Applied Sciences, Specialized Honours in Space Engineering, from York University, Toronto, and have been accepted into the Masters of Space Studies program at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France!

Obviously, I am very, very excited for this opportunity and am working toward getting everything ready. I would also like to continue my hobby of exploring various space mission concepts with you and while I hinted that my next post might be about artificial gravity, that subject will have to wait until I can focus the material enough to be suitable for a blog post.

Today, we're going to be looking at a hypothetical mission to Venus, and some of the design choices needed. This was part of an assignment for my Dynamics of Space Vehicles class so I will credit Professor John Moores, of York University.
