A Russian-US joint interplanetary probe to Venus will be possibly launched in 2027, said a Russian scientist. “The launch windows in 2026, at the end of 2027, in 2029 and 2031 are being discussed. Even if the financing starts this year, we are missing the first date, so it will most likely be 2027”, Lyudmila
