    We've already looked at terraforming mars, but what would it be like to colonize a much hotter planet with a thick atmosphere like Venus?

    Maybe colonising 55-60 km up would be a better solution, as the temperature is around 30 degrees, while the pressure is still about 60% of Earth (still survivable, pressure similar to 5000m above sea level on Earth, and less sulphuric acid around).

    Unlike crazy gf's the best way to cool down Venus would be to chuck really big ice cubes at it

    Between the 900 degree temperatures and the terrible pressure, who in their right mind would try to colonize Venus!?

    how about we all colonize pizza ovens on high...same thing

    Given the fact that the Sun will eventually run out of hydrogen & start growing bigger & hotter, colonizing Venus would not be a smart move. That's probably why most who've thought about this prefer Mars.

    Now even if this world becomes a horrible place I rather live in it instead of Mars, the radiation will let me go outside for like 40 minutes and without communication or a lot of vitamin D it’s just not good for your heath(that’s a guess but it’s likely around 40 minutes)

  • Am Clover
    Am Clover   5 months ago

    Do we need to colonize it, I been hearing most worlds tend to have high amounts of radiation then isn’t it safe to just have a bunch of huge city space ships as a moons of other planets all over and we can just mine asteroids and use solar energy as back ups?

    Venus is bitchy about me and my crew Ronda vue on her cloud. But why she teasing us by showing signs like Hot and Bother, corrosive with acid if we probing her? Typical chic right? All show no play, try to swallow my space craft you kinky you. If venus keep playing hard to get then i will go to Uranus land my probe there instead. I heard there's tons of shit to do there.
