Really? One of the worst candidate, actually. I think really unrealistic now.Except that discovery of phosphine appears to have been an issue with the data processing, not something actually in the atmosphere of Venus. That said, Venus is one of the better candidates for human planetary settlement, at least floating cities in the clouds, if you believe planets are where we should be prioritizing our colonization efforts. Floating cities are actually quite realistic with technology that is available now or expected to be available in the near future.
Any planetary colonization is unrealistic right now. We don't even have a clue if Humans can live in reduced gravity without substantial long term effects. We do microgravity studies in the ISS, and the only people to have ever experienced reduced gravity are the astronauts that landed on the Moon, but they were there for too short a period to make any conclusions, and in fact spent more time in zero-g than on the Moon.Really? One of the worst candidate, actually. I think really unrealistic now.
At the surface, yes, but Venus' atmosphere is many times denser than Earth's, even though they are close to the same size. So once you get closer to the top of the atmosphere, the pressure drops as does the temperature. There lays a band that is close to Earth pressure and temperature, though the rain there is very acidic, not water.
I feel it, we're close to getting images for the buildings. I know venus is supposed to have some nod to sky cities it shows in the research tree picture, but it's nice to see some actual building.
It would not necessary to mine the SURFACE of Jupiter (if it even HAS a solid core). The atmosphere of Jupiter has many, many interesting chemical compounds.It is impossible mine jupiter.. the pressure in jupiter is so extreme and its surface is so deep from where it's atmosphere begins... any ship and you (even if you have a sci-fi starship), would be crushed before reach the 50% of the distance to reach it's surace. so, any era where you can mine jupiter would be in all therms very unrealistic.
