Mission to Venus

The Japanese Space Agency is active, it is now planning a mission to Venus. It will carry instruments to explore this planet. It will also carry an extra probe which will be sailing the solar wind, which is the first time solar wind sailing will actually be tested. The surface temperature and atmospheric presure is much larger on Venus compared to that of Earth, but humans are still interested in exploring it. I cannot see any future colonization of Venus by humans and dogs, but the human thirst for knowledge goes beyond what can be readily used for living, eating, and other basic stuff. I guess this is one of the reasons human civilization has come so far.
