Last encounters with the planet Venus
Venus has been very busy this month, the solar orbiter probe that is a partnership between the European space agency and NASA, passed near Venus on Monday, August 9, at its closest point it was 7995 kilometers from the surface of the planet and on Tuesday August 10, the BepiColombo spacecraft, a partnership between the European space agency and the Japanese space agency, passed only 550 kilometers from the Venusian surface.
The flybys have served to collect data and images of the planet although neither of the two spacecraft has Venus as its objective, the solar orbiter is destined to study the sun and obtain for the first time in history images of the poles of our star and the BepiColombo has as a mercury mission, both ships have used the gravity of venus to be able to go to their destinations.
