Atoms-thick layer of silicon-based semiconductor may allow us to better understand the harsh environments of Venus
Apr 21, 2017
In 1967, Venera 4 was the 1st probe to transmit data from another planet’s atmosphere. 8 models, and close to 15 years, later we were able to receive the 1st colour panoramic views of that same planet’s surface. Today, Venus still very much remains a mystery with probes unable to withstand the extreme temperatures and atmospheric pressures for more than 127 minutes. However, researchers at Standford University’s Extreme Environment Microsystems Laboratory are working on developing an atoms-thick
