HAVOC: NASA’s proposed cloud city over Venus

The surface of Venus is a notorious hell-hole. If an atmospheric pressure roughly 90 times greater than Earth isn’t enough for you, try the surface temperature, which can grow to almost five times the boiling point of water. Got a nice pressure suit to keep you cool? Make sure it’s resistant to the effects of corrosive substances dissolved into the…
