Mission Concepts

Profesor Seager is leading a Venus Life Finder Mission Concept Study sponsored by the Breakthrough Foundation and in-kind contributions from volunteer scientists and engineers. The science goal is to search for signs of life or microbial-type life detection. The goal is a privately funded mission or a private-government partnership.

We aim for a series of focused missions in repeat visits to Venus. The scientific goals are to search for signs of life or life directly in the Venusian atmosphere.
