Europe’s new Venus probe will have to survive months-long scorching ‘aerobrake’ procedure

Europe’s planned Venus exploration mission will depend on a challenging aerobraking procedure to lower its orbit, which will test the thermal resiliency of the spacecraft’s materials to their limits. 

The EnVision mission, expected to launch in the early 2030s, will study the geology and atmosphere of Venus, the hellish planet that once may have looked quite like Earth but turned into a scorched hostile world due to a runaway greenhouse effect
