Early 20th century science fiction depicted Venus as a magical land with a pleasantly warm climate, lush forests, and even dinosaurs. In 1950, the American Museum of Natural History even invited guests to reserve seats on the first space tour, before the advent of private space travel agencies.
Today, Venus has clearly shown that it is no longer an attractive tourist destination. Over the past decades, numerous research projects have shown that this planet is not a paradise but is no different from hell with terrible temperatures, a toxic atmosphere and extremely high surface pressure. Despite this, NASA is currently planning a human flight to Venus. The short name of this flight is RAVAGED.
Venus’ harsh climate hampers hopes of bringing humans to this planet. However, new NASA research into using Venus’ dense atmosphere opens up new hopes.
According to Space, Venus exploration missions over the past decades have shown that this planet is not a dream destination for tourists due to its high temperature of around 460 degrees Celsius, toxic air and its barren rocky surface, interspersed with vast basalt plains. and volcanic rocks.
What surprises many scientists is that Venus’ upper atmosphere has the most similarities to Earth in the solar system. At an altitude of about 50 to 60 km, the pressure and temperature are comparable to those in the lowest atmospheric regions of the Earth.
The atmosphere at this altitude is dense enough to protect humans from cosmic radiation but just enough to use the Sun’s energy.
As a result, the house on Venus will be like a closed hot air balloon floating in space, carried by the wind and supplied entirely with respiratory gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The airship is sealed with a cover made of special materials capable of resisting the corrosive effects of acids such as Teflon and some highly acid-resistant plastics.
