Abstract: Venus is in some important respects the most Earthlike planet we know of, and yet it's atmosphere, climate and surface conditions have evolved in extremely different ways from those of Earth. Understanding this divergence has important implications for the evolution of climate, tectonics and life on planets throughout the universe. I will review the history of spacecraft exploration of Venus and describe several future missions which have been proposed.
