The Revolutionary Aerospace Systems Concepts (RASC) activity is funded by the Office of Aerospace Technology to study alternate approaches to achieving NASA’s missions that may occur beyond traditional planning horizons. In support of these alternate approaches, RASC identifies the benefits of advanced technology application and documents any other necessary enabling capabilities in support of the advanced mission concepts and architectures. The focus of this activity is for missions that would occur between 2015 and 2030. RASC studies leverage expertise across NASA to ensure a broad systems perspective to assess impacts of innovative ideas and advanced technologies.
This is a concept video for a mission that NASA developed called the Revolutionary Aerospace Systems Concepts (RASC) program. It was a program to develop a conceptual design for a robotic mission to explore the surface and atmosphere of Venus.
