EuroVenus – Studying Earth’s Twin Planet
EuroVenus is a sister-project to Europlanet that focused on studying Venus using a combination of space-based and ground-based observatories. The main space-based observatory used is Venus Express, the European Space Agency’s Venus orbiter, but some other space-based telescopes have been used particularly for observing the transit of Venus. EuroVenus was funded from 2013-2016is funded through the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
Outreach has been an important part of the EuroVenus project. Features include “Meet a Venusian” profiles of researchers involved in the projects, FAQs on Venus and videos aiming from a full documentary about the project to a 3-minute 360 virtual observing trip.
