Gold Team Goals
When planning and carrying out the mission to Venus there is plenty of work that remains behind the scenes. Although most of the attention is focused around the rocket and the spacecraft a multitude of work is being done down on the ground to guarantee the safety and success of the mission. The Gold Team is in charge of ensuring the success of mission planning and mission operation.
The gold team must:
● Cooperate with private sector or international partners to achieve mission objectives.
● Determine where Mission Control will be located and its layout.
● Establish in what way will Mission Control support and interact with the Venus crew throughout the duration of the mission. Supporting and interacting consist of:
-Achieving exploration of Venus and mission objectives.
-Keeping the crew physically and psychologically safe.
● Determine how Mission Control will communicate with the crew and other spacecraft.
● Manage the financial and legislative aspects of the mission to Venus.
