…Humans To Venus?
"Venus is a remarkable planet in many ways. Located about 67 million miles (108 million km) from the Sun, Venus is often called Earth's twin because it's almost equal in size and composition.
However, Venus is an extreme world and sending humans to the planet is impossible due to terrifying things that would happen…"

I think they would end up looking like bubbling chunks of jelly.
PS. Or they would have been added to some Venusian's collection:

Is that from the Outer Limits?

Cool! I was six years old when that came out. I tried to watch it but it scared the bejeezes out of me.

Considering our probes didn't last very long & it rains acid, I think finding volunteers to travel might be a problem!

It may be easier colonized than Mars YouTube link but I still think that space itself (in O'Neil cylinders or similar} will be first.

Nothing either new nor particulary Venus-shaking in that article/blog post.
Now, a plan to terraform Venus (and why the heck not?) would be an interesting article, or even just designs for sustainable probes (I think NASA is working on a flying drone concept, actually).
So, ho hum on this.

I've seen some interesting articles on terraforming Venus. The biggest challenge would be to find a way to reduce the atmosphere enough that pressures get to something close to habitable & reduce the impact of the greenhouse effect, such as a chemical solution to precipitate out the carbon from the atmosphere. You could also skip comets through the atmosphere as well to introduce water into the ecosystem. Might also have to find a way to block or reduce the amount of solar radiation hitting the planet (i.e. a solar shield FREX). Certainly a challenge…

The real challenge will be terraforming Uranus.

….nor particularly Venus-shaking…..
