The only way that would be nifty is if the record was anOST and the label was the clock face.

I hope that's just a photoshop because otherwise you see human waste like that and don't even have to wonder, might as well just a big L tattoo on your forehead while you're at it.

why not, it worked for the french (and soviets)

though really, i don't see the point of sending humans to venus, the place is insanely hostile to life

I read a hard sci-fi story about a landing on venus. Yeesh.

Floating above all that pressure and heat would be the only way humans could come even close to being there. I guess if they send probes down it would be like a floating laboratory.
Beyond the practice for interplanetary travel, I don't seem much reason to go to Venus either. Since Venus is quite a bit closer, that would make the practice safer than trying for Mars right off.

and of course just to complicate things, venus doesn't have a magnetic field -- even mars has one

Mars doesn't have a magnetosphere. Mercury is the only other terrestrial planet with a magnetic field.

The video at the link is too intense to be taken seriously.

Semi-related: Is it impossible to enter a planet's atmosphere without the fireball effect? Like, what if you did it really, really slowly?

Sure.

The problem is slowing down. Atmospheres are free and are very good at slowing you down, fireballs notwithstanding. Slowing down before you hit it means bringing up even more rockets and fuel.

It appears to be just snow that was broken off the top of that truck? That'd scare me regardless.

I'd assumed they had declared the Pole neutral, like they did the South.

Yeah, but the thicker atmosphere compensates, assuming we're talking about radiation exposure here? That article I linked to says the radiation dosage at probable dirigible height on Venus is about a tenth that at the surface of Mars.

I thought you were right about Mars having a weak magnetic field. Though checking Wikipedia it apparently does not. Though some rocks retain evidence of an early planetary field that has since disappeared. Perhaps the iron core froze solid.

I believe Geesie discussed that sometime back and said its indeed international waters. That does not preclude these nations from posturing in the hope of changing maritime law. ;)
