Caucasian Colonization Of Planet Venus?

Venus used to be as fit for life as Earth!

Winter Solstice, 1959 — a headline in Life magazine proclaimed “Target Venus: There May be Life There!” It told of how scientists rode a balloon to an altitude of 80,000 feet to make telescope observations of Venus’s atmosphere, and how their discovery of water raised hopes that there could be living things there. As a kid, I thrilled to tales of undersea adventure with telepathic Venusian frogs in (Jew) Isaac Asimov’s juvenile science - fiction novel "Lucky Starr" and "The Oceans Of Venus."

For many of my peers, though, Venus quickly lost its romance. The very first thing that scientists discovered with a mission to another planet was that Venus was not at all the Earthly paradise that fiction and speculative science had portrayed. So how could Caucasians ever possibly hope to live there? The key is to avoid the surface. “The problem with Venus is that the surface is too far below the one-Earth-atmosphere [of air pressure] level,” says Geoffrey Landis, the Nasa scientist and science fiction writer who was among the first to propose the idea. “The atmosphere of Venus is
the most Earth-like environment in the Solar System (other than the Earth).” Some 50 kilometers (30 miles) above the surface, Venus is surprisingly hospitable.

To live on Venus, then, just fill a balloon with nitrogen and oxygen, and live inside the balloon. A big enough balloon will have enough lifting power to support you and your supplies – and a really big balloon could do even more. “A one-kilometer diameter spherical [balloon] will lift 700,000 tons – two Empire State Buildings. A two-kilometer diameter [balloon] would lift six million tons,” says Landis. “The result would be an environment as spacious as a typical city.” But what if the balloon rips? “It's not going to be like popping a balloon,” assures Landis. Because the pressure inside the balloon would be the same as the pressure outside, a rip would slowly leak air, rather than leading to an immediate catastrophic explosion. “It would be like opening a window, and slowly the outside gas leaks in and the inside gas leaks out… The larger the habitat, the slower the process will be.”

An interesting video on the possibilities
of construction of environments that are
Caucasian-friendly high in the Venusian
atmosphere.

The image below is what I recovered from
the "album cover" that accompanied it.
I have re-formatted it to best conformed
to the construction and maintenance of
this webpage.

This is a video made apparently before anyone gave
any serious credence to the concept that such
colonies could be createable and sustainable in
the upper reaches of the planetary atmosphere.
