Venus is more habitable than Mars.

If you took a sealed room and dropped in on Venus, it would sink to a point, then start floating. Because Venus earth air is three times more powerful as a lifting gas than helium is here. Humans could live in giant balloons of air and live in the upper atmosphere of Venus. There is a point where the pressure is earth pressure and that point has a temperature of about 30 celsius, and the entire atmosphere is carbon dioxide, so you would just need a mask and a container of air.

    Apr 23 2011: Is the moon more habitable than Venus?

    I mean, if we're going to put sealed places to live somewhere...
    Plus transportation would be a helluva lot easier. Still expensive though.

      Apr 23 2011: In addition, we would have to plan on how many inhabitants we would want in "our new world". If it cost billions to transport a couple of men and women to the moon, just imagine transporting BLLIONS of men and women, plus children to the cheesy biosphere. Also, you have to take into consideration of human needs: water, food, shelter. THIS EQUATES TO EVEN MORE EXPENSES!

      I believe we should deal with our problems here on Earth and not run away to a foreign mass to create only MORE problems. We live in a world with the resources capable of reversing or stabilizing our mistakes. So why not apply them?

          Damn you Sky and your rebuttal.
