I'm actually pretty disappointed with this discovery. Venus was the prime candidate for terrforming. If there's life there I can't see that happening.

Rumours of evidence of life on Venus apparently.


David Bowie is strawberry floating furious.

What I don't understand is why we wouldn't be looking at building a colony on/in the moon. We have the kind of technology much more readily available (it would be a grounded space station, but on a larger scale which could be self serving) and rather than that people are talking about terraforming which is far, far, far beyond our reach.

Gravity would play havoc with our bodies over an extended stay on the moon. We'd end up with people unable to ever return to Earth.

Gravity is always going to do that. You'd need to work on some form of artificial gravity system or something to get around that.

Eventually there will be humans that won't be able to return to earth and that's ok. There's going to be humans born on planets far away from earth or in space with no need to return here eventually, that's even if there's anything to return to.

Could heightened atmospheric pressure within a lunar colony make up for the lax gravity?

Yes but there's a huge difference between being on the moon and on Mars. Martian humans would probably struggle with Earth, Moonian (?) humans would be utterly strawberry floated. And where else could they go? Mars would be too much gravity for people used to the moon.

Yes artificial gravity would solve it. But that doesn't exist. Your point was it's easier to get to the moon, you can't justify that with a sci-fi invention that doesn't yet exist.

I only mentioned female life forms, because I think I saw on QI nothing on Venus is allowed to named after males. So the lifeforms must be female to stick to our strict rules.

Living on other planets is a pretty bad idea. Human physiology is evolved to exist in the very specific conditions found on Earth. If you did want to colonise the rest of the solar system I would prefer to live on an orbital habitat as at least it could be spun to precisely one g and have an artificial day cycle that corresponds to 24 hours.
