>>10903497>Venus mobile explorer proposed doing that.>It lands does some science and inflates a metallic hell balloon to go up 8-16 km, blows with the wind and goes down.
leaving it that low is fucking retarded, it won't last and they will end up exposing the damn probe to the worst of venus.>Ends up lasting marginally longer than the Venera probes.
of course, nothing would last there longer than a few hours at best.>You need to get up pretty fucking high for it to make any difference in temperature at all.
and thats why we need to send a probe that stays at 50km to 55km, at 50km above venus the conditions are nearly earth-like, the exact same pressure on earth and a manageable temperature that range from 20°C to 70°C.
the only thing it will need to do is avoid the damn acid clouds or coat the zeppelin with teflon so that it can remain safe from acid clouds.
if it remains as a weather balloon or in this case as a weather zeppelin, we will discover lots of things and have many questions answered.
since the CO2 is heavier than air, it'll be easy to lift itself there with oxigen and if we manage to vacuum seal the thing, I bet that it will last a long time on air.
it can maybe even carry inside a exact copy of the lander so that when the first lander finally succumbs, it can go and transmit all the information to the copy and continue where it left.
obviously it will descend safely like a half-bomb like shell tied to a special balloon.
