Japan

AN interplanetary probe intended to go into orbit around Venus has failed in its mission, Japan's space agency said today, 200 days after it left Earth.

...

The Akatsuki was fitted with five cameras to peer through the planet's thick layer of sulphuric acid clouds to monitor the meteorology of Venus, search for possible lightning, and scan its crust for active volcanoes.

Another day, another failed space mission. Or, another day, another mission reported as a failure ?

It's particularly interesting considering the ability of the probe to visualise the surface of the planet, which has never been done before from orbit.

Yet again it seems as if someone or something doesn't want us to get a good look down there.

LOL, no they were not destined to capture the beautiful planet teaming with life.

Hmmm... looks like the probe was taken out by Nibiru!
