Re: Given the recent rennaissance in Venutian Cloud Cities here

Because no other planet or moon in the solar system will be able to provide as close to earthlike conditions as Venus when terraformed.

And it will never be terraformed if we just stay out of it and ignore it.

Re: Given the recent rennaissance in Venutian Cloud Cities here

what about mars?  and we would be most of the way to done if we took 94 bar of co2 off of the veusian atmos.  then we wouls speed rotation-how-and preferably reduce insulation.

Mars will never be as good, simply because of its lower gravity.

If we ever develop technology on the level that you suggest (moving around dozens of bars of gases), Venus will be a paradise planet. Removing its extra gases will make it a much better planet than adding gases to Mars.

Re: Given the recent rennaissance in Venutian Cloud Cities here

that was more of a joke to show impracticality.  Venus is semiunterraformable, it would cost many trillions of dollars.

Re: Given the recent rennaissance in Venutian Cloud Cities here

Like mars would cost billions, ceres millions, and Titan, well, I could do it on a budget of 250,000 (if the infrastructure for getting there was already there).

Have you checked the Terraforming Venus thread out? Excess hydrogen from the Terraforming of Titan could be used. Iron is taken from asteroids.

Why has this Mars site gone all Venutian all of a sudden?

I would rather say its just another place that we are not going until a Spacex or Nasa decides that we are going.
Venus has a rich atmosphere as well to make use of and in time it will not be crushing on its surface to a human crew.
