NASA’s plan for an off-world colony: a floating city above Venus

Posted by in categories: governance, space

Circa 2015

Imagine a blimp city floating 30 miles above the scorching surface of Venus – a home for a team of astronauts studying one of the solar system’s most inhospitable planets.

NASA is currently doing just that; floating a concept that could one day see a 30-day manned mission to Earth’s closest planetary neighbor.

Eventually, the mission could involve a permanent human presence suspended above the planet.
