Re: Venus

In my opinion, the question is, is there life in the clouds of Venus?  I am not sure which answer I would prefer.

If no life, I really don't think trying to terraform the surface of Venus has a good pay off potential.

In my thinking adapting to what Venus has to offer is more likely to advance a solar system "Civilization".

Not that I particularly admire "Civilizations".  Pretty much Psyco people in charge tormenting those under their control

But with the advent of library, I guess detailed learning can be kept as records, so that everything does not have to be re-created over and over again.

But the Jerks in charge.  Generally lacking morals, and having a delusions of grandeur about their importance.

Still we have to work with something, and this seems to be as good as we can do at this time.

Well, infrastructure is helpful for wealth, and wealth helps continuation.  Keeps the Woke people from burning the records (Library).

But the penalty is the people who take themselves serious about knowing the full extent of what is, and should be.  We get them as well.

But, it seems we may also get Rocket Lab>Electron Rocket>Venus Probe.  That's nice.

Done.

Re: Venus

We certainly want to check on this prior to terraforming efforts.  It is possible that such life may be compatible with cloud cities and methods to mine the surface of Venus, however.

Re: Venus

A gift from Anton Petrov:

I think the information about how the mantle of Venus would have been made twice as hot as that of Earth, is very important.  That is because impactors in the "Great bombardment" would have been traveling at a faster speed.

This suggests that Venus may never have had liquid surface water for very long or at all perhaps.

Infrared pictures of the dark side of Venus are important.

Also, I find the notion of lighter than air but powered aircraft to be very good.  I have always considered that it would be rather stupid to put people into such craft, and I see no indication that that is being considered.  As far as atmospheric research, I think that robots can do it fine, and the added value/danger of humans included into such missions, is against the inclusion of humans at this time of course.

It is important to understand truth about Venus before contemplating Terra formation of it.  But feel free to repeat this into a science topic.

I have been thinking about an "Anti-Dyson Sphere" as part of terraforming, should terraforming be desired.  Perhaps synthetic habitats made on Mercury, and then propelled to Venus with Solar Photons, or Solar Wind or both.  I wonder what you can get if you do both at the same time?
