Russian scientists develop robot to explore Venus

Moscow, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) Scientists from the Bauman Moscow State Technical University have developed a prototype robot to explore Venus, Georgy Shcheglov, deputy director of the Aerospace Systems Department at the higher education center, said on Friday.

Shcheglov told TVBRICS that the planet has harsh climatic conditions, high temperatures and pressure, and an acidic atmosphere.

All this negatively affects the functioning of mechanisms, which are destroyed in the first minutes after landing.

Scientists use a pneumatic drive with compressed gas to move the sphere.

Similar spherical research stations have already been sent to Venus, but if they were always stationary before on the surface of the planet, they could move now in the right direction.

Bauman University and later robotics specialists assembled the engine using the scientists’ materials.

The device moves by jumping, and the robot can cross Venus’s surface for about 500 meters.
