Some interesting facts about space

1: If you take every single human on Earth and you put one on top of another, the total height will be 8 times the diameter of sun

2: Venus actually had liquid when the Sun was young, but as it gets older, more hotter it gets. The rise of Sun's temperature let Venus's volcanoes to erupt and all the gaz released by these raging volcanoes now becomes Venus's atmosphere.

3: One of the ways to make Mars habitable is to pollute its atmosphere by rising green house effect (which human seems to be very good at)

4: Astronomers recently found a giant equilateral hexagon on the north pole of Saturn. That hexagon is a vortex called "The Great White Spot". This vortex is even bigger than Jupiter's Great Red Spot

5: If all the plants on Earth die, the oxygen contained in our atmosphere can let us breathe for about 1000 years.

Venus is more colonizable than Mars. The only problem is that the surface is so far below sea level. Do a Google search for "colonizing Venus." I think you'll be quite interested at how much easier it would be to colonize Venus than Mars.

PianoreGD responds:

Yes, we will have to build houses that flow on the upper atmosphere. The big problem is Venus's rotation, it rotates slow AF so one side is very hot while the other side is cold. Mars is pretty interesting, its temperature can rise up to 20°C at daytime and the rotation is about 25 hours, which is similar to the Earth. But Mars is too small

Despite Venus slow rotation, temperature could be controlled some kind of way. But another problem with Mars is its lack of a magnetic field. Without that, it would be impossible (with our current technology) to maintain an atmosphere due to the solar wind. And, because of the lack of a magnetic field, another problem would be all kinds of radiation that are mostly blocked here on Earth. But with Venus, I believe something could be done about the rotation. Just because Venus rotates slowly doesn't mean the colony has to. Of course, then something would have to be done to be sure there are no collisions between different sections of the colony. I could not imagine a colony would be in one solid piece...
