Why Venus I chose Venus as my planet for 3 reasons. 1: I chose Venus because it is the most beautiful planet in the solar system. 2: It it the most Earth like planet. 3: It is the closest planet to Earth.
Transportation I will have a ship going at 1 light year a hour. I will have a tank of water that never runs out because the tank reproduces the water molecules and makes water. The ship will be made out of acid resistant titanium. The first layer will be glass because of the acid rain. The ship will have adjustable three-legged landing gear because of the rugged surface.
Getting There Getting there would only take a couple of hours for two reasons. 1: I will be going at 1 light year an hour. The 3 engines are powered by 3 supernovas each. The reason for 3 engines is for balance. 2: It is the closest planet to Earth. Getting through the atmosphere would be tough because of the asteroids. If they broke through the titanium, I would have to turn back.
The Landing The landing was very hard because of the rocky surface and the volcanic eruptions. I was very lucky because my ship did not get damaged. I used the three-legged adjustable landing gear to get away from the volcanic eruptions and land balanced.
A Week from a Life on Venus I brought lots of food but will not take it outside since the acid rain would destroy it. I wont eat all the food, but see if it could grow on its own. I must live in my ship or I would die of the acid rain. I brought 14 pairs of clothes, 7 for normal wear and 7 sturdy and chemical proof lab outfits for conducting experiments.
Experiment I will see if people are able to live here. Because of the harsh climate, they would have to live under acid resistant titanium. The titanium domes might not work because the volcanoes lava would melt them and the rocky surface would not be suitable for construction. One solution: I will fill the craters with cement and they will serve as platforms for the buildings and titanium domes.
Wait, Theres More! Venus was named after the Roman goddess Venus. She was the goddess of love and beauty. The planet Venus was named after that particular goddess because the Rome thought that the planet was the most beautiful in the sky.
