NASA should begin dilligently planning a surface mission to Venus. The planet's atmosphere has been subject to extensive investigation yielding clues and discoveries which portend a fascinating surface full of (possible) active volcanoes, erosive weather, and lava flows. We've mapped the surface via radar but we should look to landing a probe on Venus. I know there's been talk of the Venus In-Situ Explorer (VISE). Well, let's take that mission off the dusty shelf if it was there in the first place and seriously explore the concept. Obviously, for the trip to be worthwhile the instruments and craft would have to survive at least a few weeks which will add weight to the launch package but this is a very fixable issue.
What say you?
