Colonising Venus with your big-boy pants on (science video).

Here’s an interesting science video on colonising Venus – first, with floating cities in the habital cloud zone, then with a little terraforming to cool the planet down to its original Earth-like state before runaway global warming turned the world into a hellscape.

It’s going back to the first science fiction, such as Olaf Stapledon’s 1930 novel, Last and First Men, where humanity is forced to migrate to Venus hundreds of millions of years in the future when astronomical calculations show that the Moon will spiral down to crash into Earth (the opposite of what will actually happen, oddly enough).

Stapledon described Venus as being mostly ocean with fierce tropical storms.
