NASA scientists are planning to build floating cities on Venus. I think that scientists sometimes look like writers. They dream about books and screenplays for film and write. Scientists think about seemingly impossible things that become real. Our thinking has power and becomes material, with the power of belief. Thoughts are things, someone said.
Now, scientists are thinking about traveling planet Venus. They want to build floating cities on Venus. However,
are this possible? The average surface temperature on Venus is 462 ° C. The dense atmosphere is about 96.5 percent heat traps carbon dioxide and causes the greenhouse effect. Therefore, Venus is a hellish planet.
Space Facts adds more data on this world:
Venus is the second planet from the Sun and is the second brightest object in the night sky after the moon. Named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, Venus is the second largest terrestrial planets and is sometimes referred to as Earth’s sister planet because of its similar size and mass. The planet’s surface is obscured by an opaque layer consisting of sulfuric acid clouds.
If we cannot live on the surface of the planet Venus, then we will do floating cities in that world and others. Scientists are really thinking about it.
Scientists believe that the atmosphere of Venus is good enough for the floating cities or exploratory vessels. They call the sweet spot the area where they intend to create floating cities.
Scientists say the floating cities on Venus will be 50 kms above the planet’s surface.
For scientists, the temperature the “sweet spot” is about 17 degrees more than the Earth. They said it is tolerable.
Nevertheless, before the construction of floating cities on Venus, NASA scientists need to perform important studies. They need better understanding the environment of that world. In addition, need to send a robotic mission before.
According NASA SACD:
Key technical challenges for the mission include performing the aerocapture maneuvers at Venus and Earth, inserting and inflating the airship at Venus, and protecting the solar panels and structure from the sulfuric acid in the atmosphere. With advances in technology and further refinement of the concept, missions to the Venusian atmosphere can expand humanity’s future in space.
