Invitation to live on Venus?
« on: 10/04/2011 11:29:25 »
At about 55km above the surface of venus the pressure and temperature are very close to STP.
Also an earth like atmosphere would provide a lot of lift, as the Venusian atmosphere is a lot denser.

This makes it in concept possible to think about starting a colony on Venus in a "floating city".
Needless to say, a great many technical hurdles remain unresolved.
