If we all worked at it real hard, do you suppose we could get it to happen sooner?  I would mind being free of all the crazy theists and it sure would eliminate the overpopulation problem for a few centuries while we learn to terraform venus or mars.

Why 'or'?  Terraform them both!  Although we might want to accelerate Venus' rotation on its axis.  Right now its day is longer than its year.

Mars gravity is not really good for us and Mars can't really hold an atmosphere.  Venus is the right gravity and might be easier in some ways.  But doing both is fine by me if we can afford it.

I will assume terraforming Venus would include adjusting the rotation.  If we can do one we can do both.  LOL!

If some of Venus' atmosphere could be transported to Mars, it might be possible to terraform both at once. Of course, it would take a lot more than that, but it would be a start. Maybe we could haul stuff from the Oort cloud, too, but it would be very time consuming - like centuries.

I admire creative thinking.  But I have to suspect that transporting atmosphere between planets has got to be hard...

Nah, it's just a simple matter of engineering. I suppose Venus' atmosphere might have to be frozen first, perhaps by blocking all the sunlight from reaching it. Then the frozen gasses could be cut into big cubes and flung into orbit, where they can then be transported to Mars orbit.

COOL!  Literally and figuratively...


See?  Now *I'M* just thinking of engineering some bacteria and molds and yeasts  to survive on the surface and hoping something good happens.  Frozen atmosphere?  Amazing.

We might be able to fling big blocks of Venus' frozen atmosphere to Mars with this technique:

OK, you get into the mechanics, and I understand that better.  Rotate 2 objects, release one at the right time, LAUNCH!

But why use 2?  Wouldn't a rotating station work just as well and stay in place if all the variables were measured??

My sense of motion suggests it would.  But I sure can't prove it.
