    The surface of Venus is one of the most inhospitable places in our solar system; the atmospheric pressure is more than 90-times that of Earth, the temperature is over 460 Celsius, and the sky is covered by clouds of sulphuric acid. The Soviet Union have been the only nation to land any tech on the surface to date, and each lander succumbed to the harsh conditions very quickly.

    Now a team at NASA Glenn Research Centre have developed a computer chip that can actually survive and operate in these conditions.
