Landers on Venus

I'd like for us to try Venus surface exploration again. Mars may be the first place beyond the moon for humans, but there seems to be a lack of interest with Venus. It is an extraordinary attempt with the conditions being so different, but I think if we can get a functional lander, and the press the curiosity lander got with Mars, we could revitalize some space dreams. The Soviet Union landed decades ago, but there has been nothing since. I think we have a lot to learn from a direct surface exploration, and are sadly ignoring our sister planet.
