Future Tech: Floating colonies on Venus

Future Tech: Floating colonies on Venus Adrian Mann

It’s hot, at a searing average temperature of 460 degrees Celsius – some 410 degrees hotter than the muggiest deserts on Earth. Its atmosphere is thick with choking carbon dioxide, laced with poisonous sulphuric acid clouds which hang above a parched desert-like landscape, renewed by the angry eruptions of volcanoes. Without a shadow of a doubt Earth’s evil twin, Venus, with its additional high pressure environment – that has a crushing power 100 times that of Earth – is unfriendly for life. Sending astronauts onto a world that can cook, crush and choke in a few seconds flat and hoping for their survival is ambitious to say the least.
