Description

Artwork showing blimps and a habitat in the temperate zone within Venus' atmosphere. Although the surface of Venus is hellish, with crushing pressures and searing heat, at an altitude of 50 km (31 miles) the conditions are much milder, comparable to those at the surface of the Earth. This region would make a good location for the exploration of the planet by humans.
