I’ve been looking up the possibility of colonizing Venus myself but your article was much more thorough than anything I’ve come across so far. I really enjoyed seeing your designs, as well. When you called Venus our evil twin, it really isn’t a bad description given the fact that Earth could end up looking exactly like Venus if we aren’t careful about our planet’s environment and addressing our runaway greenhouse gasses. I like to think of Venus as bitter and hostile but also a real world example of what we could become.
