About this Product

Although the surface of Venus is an extremely hostile environment, at about 50 kilometers above the surface the atmosphere of Venus is the most earth-like environment in the solar system. At this altitude both the atmospheric pressure and temperature are Earth normal. Additionally, breathable air is a lifting gas on Venus and can be used to buoy floating airships (similar to how helium is used on Earth) . Since the lifting gas is breathable, the full volume of the airship envelope can be made habitable.
