In-Situ Mineralogical Analysis of the Venus Surface using X-ray Diffraction

Understanding Venus’ surface mineralogy and geologic evolution through direct crystallographic measurements will inform comparative Terrestrial Planetology in our own solar system (the only one we can directly measure) and provide a basis for the interpretation of remote observations of “Venus-like” exoplanets circling sun-like stars.
