>>10994203>how do you collect sufficient amounts of water on Venus? If you can't collect sufficient amounts of water on Venus, then colonization of Venus is basically impossible
dunno about how, to be honest its probably impossible to colonize there BUT we don't know that for sure.
the only way I know, simply use expensive technology to get air from the abundant CO2 and then get oxygen from it, then we get hydrogen from the upper atmosphere and make water with it alongside recycling said water.
a complex and currently near impossible task with current technology.
unless we literally install water plants on space, that collect the hydrogen from space and send it down to the colonies, the same thing that happens with astronauts for them to get water.
so a feasible method is through reusable rockets that constantly go up and down to collect water from space and back, the rocket landing in a special plataform sustained through special zeppelins.
the other is collecting water from the upper atmosphere and harvest the deuterium found in it and make rocket fuel with it.
so short answer with current technology is impossible to colonize venus and sustain it since we don't have the methods of getting enough water from a growing population.
it is possible to visit and remain on venus through long periods of time though.
quite sad isn't it, but a man can dream and I bet we will have water plants in the near future, if so then we may be capable of colonizing hell afterall.
