NASA funds for grants for Venus rover research

NASA Awards Grants to Ozark IC to Create Circuits for Proposed Venus Rover. $245K in grants for semi-conductor development to survive and operate on the surface of Venus.

The Venus Landsailing Rover is a proposal for a mobile lander on Venus being developed by NASA Glenn which could withstand the searing temperatures and pressure, pushing the limits of technology in high-temperature electronics, robotics, and robust systems; the previous Soviet Venera landers on Venus in the 1980s were only able to survive up to two hours.

I like this. Even though a Venus mission is not in the budget, this could plant a seed for a future mission.
