55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will learn about how inhospitable Venus is and how its atmosphere and pressure is destructive to equipment that is sent to the surface of the planet. They will also learn that it is impossible to walk on Venus because the atmospheric pressure can flatten anyone that lands there (which is why we have only sent uncrewed space probes to the planet).
We will refer to NASA material throughout the class.
