Terraforming Venus would be far more expensive

Based on what estimates? Quite honestly, there is a very good argument that real terraforming of Mars is far far far more expensive and unrealistic than Venus. Not to mention that you can never change the gravity on Mars, making Mars terraforming an idiotic proposition in the first place.

You could give Mars more mass, thus increasing gravity, but the problem with that is it would probably incorporatw smashing large bodies into it. Then you'd have to wait centuries or so for the bloody thing to re-congeal and cool-off, unless the whole thing's blown out of its orbit by the impact, in which case forget it.

Terraforming is energy intensive. The surface ain't worth it. Just build a rotating hab with 1950s niehborhoods on the inside, like oniel invisioned.

Dude, if you want to increase Mars' mass to that of Earth, you would have to smash our Moon, Mercury and half of the steroid belt in it. And it would likely take hundreds of thousands of years for the shitty molten body to cool down.

Mars is a non-starter for colonization.

Magnetism, gravity, it's all the same energy, the ether. If we were to awaken Mars's consciousness using meme magic then it's electromagnetic field would project itself and the gravity would increase, we as a species just have to manifest it as such, same with Venus and making Mercury it's moon once again correcting it's rotation speed.
Any excess CO2 we can take from Venus and out it on Mars and any excess xenon from Mars we can put on Venus.
But this all must cone after Cred Forums (3+1 Reich) takes over Earth and ushers in a one world government connecting humanity to one frequency of peace and prosperity for all.

Hudson Brown

Thinks cooling a planet is easier than warming it.

Terra-forming Mars would take over a thousand years, but obliterating Venus's atmosphere made up of an extremely high amount of carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide, while simultaneously adding oxygen AND reducing the surface temperature of around 450 °C is something than can only be done in science fiction. With current technology the only thing that's possible is living in the sky on Venus

If you have eliminatory school physics knowledge, you would know you can simply calculate the amount of cooling in a day from a completely shaded Venus very quickly. You can also calculate the current energy in the Venusian atmosphere. You will realize that a complete sunshade at the Sun-Venus Lagrange point held in place by a counter sun mirror at the L2 point can reduce the Venusian atmosphere temp to a CO2 freezing point within 70 to 150yrs depending on additional measures.

It’s also got no real atmosphere (the atmosphere is very small) and no magnetosphere. No iron core. It’s not very massive. About the only thing it has going for it it is a “miraculous” 24 hour (and 40 some minutes) day. What a cohenidence, a planet nothing like earth with moons nothing comparable to ours has nearly he same rotational period yet no other object does. That couldn’t possibly mean they’re somehow related like they used to orbit each other, could it? Nah, that’s silly goyim nonsense. Those mars rocks wound up here through other miraculous means

Isaac Lee
Isaac Lee

The point is that the fragility of any colony is going to be based on external factors largely outside of our control.

The more problems we have to mitigate, the more difficult it is to engineer something reliable, safe, and trustworthy.

By removing points of failure (gravity, atmospheric pressure, temperature, radiation, distance from earth) the construction of a colony suddenly becomes more realistic.

Luke Gray

Bullshit, if you drop a pound of feathers and a pound of sand the sand will fall faster.

Cameron Nelson

It doesn't have to be fragile. An Earth atmospheric mix of roughly 20% oxygen and 80% nitrogen is a lifting gas in the Venusian atmosphere. Combine that with perhaps some flotation devices of even lighter gases, something like nice, inert, helium, and that frees up a lot of weight for protective plating.

Balloons, blimps and airships were a reality on Earth long before we mastered other forms of flight. They are an intrinsically easier problem to solve than powered flight.

The problem of course is construction and delivery. I think some degree of prefab units which deploy during orbital descent to anchor themselves at the right atmospheric level, coupled with autonomous or remotely-controlled (perhaps from Venusian orbit by a manned spaceship) and it is feasible.

Grayson Moore

As another point: Venus and Mars both lack a protective magnetic field, but the thick atmosphere of Venus creates a very small magnetic field which shields from solar winds, but only on the lee side of the planet, the dark side. So you could solve a big problem of radiation protection by having a drifting colony which stays in the dark side of the planet. This eliminates solar power as an option, but a Venusian colony could have turbines suspended by cables into the lower, windy reaches of the atmosphere.

Oneil cylinder in orbit is most practical "colony"
O'Neill habitats, Bishop Rings, Bernal Spheres-these are the only reasonable options for colonization of space.
Probably located close to asteroids or planetoids like Ceres

Just look at this, anons. Imagine the possibilities in another galaxy. This is just one of millions in our universe. Our squabbles are irrelevant to the grand scheme of the cosmos. Imagine the countless worlds and realities there. The different types of planets that are inconceivable to the mind of man simply because we haven't discovered them, and never will. We are bound to this rock called Earth, and have been for millennia. We will never reach Andromeda because of the laws that govern space. Hell, scientists are still debating whether or not Voyager has left the solar system yet, and we sent that fucker out over 40 years ago. Think about that anons. Humans weren't designed to live that long. Generations upon generations of humans and all we have to show for it is some fucking cold, soulless rovers on Mars and other hunks of metal scattered about our own solar system.

If you introduced new mass at the same velocity it would maintain nearly the same orbit. So, balance out how you're slamming things into it and it would stlil maintain its orbit, or you could put it in a higher or lower orbit with various amounts of eccentricity.

This is basic rocket science.

Gabriel Hughes

Semantics. It'll take centuries for terraforming to occur. The only choice humanity has is finding an exoplanet that is already suitable for living. The problem is that detecting earth-sized planets is almost damn near impossible with currenty tech. So, therefore, we must
find an exoplanet
must be in the habitable zone
must not be tidally locked or f00king yuuge like Gliese 581 g because of gravity (that solar system is only about 20 light years away.)
must actually be able to travel to in a human's life-span (Kepler 22b is over 580 LIGHTYEARS AWAY)
must not crash on impact lol
Even traveling to the nearest star system (Alpha Centauri) will take 100 years with current tech, which is like a fucking space probe, not human cargo. This is the ultimate black pill. See "Project Longshot".

You guys are looking at this the wrong way. This just means martian soldiers will be able to wear armors which are twice their weight (for example, a 80 kg soldier could wear 160kg in armor) and would feel the same as he would naked on earth. Plus, he could wear an additional ~30kg armor, which would make it equivalent to some heavy armors we have in here (I picked the number from a Russian one I saw that weighed 10kg, maybe a soldier could feasibly carry even more)

3,7 m/s^2 is not even that bad actualy, you just have to do some training if you want to stay /fit/.
run a lot for impacts and cardio
lift weights 2,64 times as heavy as you would do on earth
maybe spend some time in a centrifuge that simulates high gravity like 15 m/s^2
Venus is hell, quite litterally:
acid rain
high pressure
high temperature
Mars is great for colonisation, moon is great as a shipyard:

Mars has lots of:
carbon
oxygen
iron
hydrogen
24 hour 39 minute 35 second day, easy to adapt for humans
Verry usefull to build and refuel ships.

Moon has:
helium 3
regolith
verry low gravity
low delta V requirements from and especialy to earth (1730 m/s to low moon orbit, another 3330m/s to earths athmosphere)
requires no special launch window to travel back
fast comunication with earth
Verry usefull to construct and recycle larger ships and fuel fusion reactors, sending stuff to earth could be done bay mass accellerator (gigant railgun)

then by all reason why are we getting all upset about some magnetic sphere being weak.

got a way to make food, reinforce the atmosphere and make oxygen for us which we can live and naturally produce an atmosphere over time.

Hell we can make our own advanced magnetic field since we have the power to create extremely strong magnets, we can put that shit on both the north and south poles to create such a field. which will help us also in the long run.
which we can then do the same thing as said earlier, make food, and make that shit produce the atmosphere for us.

why are we getting all upset about some magnetic sphere being weak
Radiation exposure is more harmfull to humans than to plants.
reinforce the atmosphere
Not realy, except you are talking about evaporating the icecaps...
produce an atmosphere over time
We lack the nitrogen and a way to keep the athmosphere there...
extremely strong magnets, we can put that shit on both the north and south poles to create such a field
Not at that scale...

Anthony Reyes

mars colonization is 100% a meme. Perhaps in 1000 years or whatever time scale is long enough that we have technologies we can't imagine today, but there's no point in thinking about it now. Mining asteroids though, perhaps that is actually viable?
