Colonizing the Solar System

  1. 1. If you were given the opportunity to be one of the first settlers on any other celestial body in the rest of the solar system, where would you settle?

Fun fact: Helium-3 is one of the proposed element isotopes to be used in future nuclear fusion energy projects. However, it's rare on Earth but abundant on the Moon, making it one of the reasons people would want others to colonize the Moon. https://www.bbvaopenmind.com/en/science/physics/helium-3-lunar-gold-fever/

Why did you put Venus, a planet where metal melts in minutes and it rains sulfuric acid, but not any of the hundreds of terrestrial moons?

Some people actually have suggested to colonize Venus. And their idea is to use floating settlements, as the atmosphere of Venus around 50 km (31 miles) above the surface is actually comparable to Earth's atmosphere and the issues of the surface aren't as severe as it is on the surface. https://ntrs.nasa.gov/api/citations/20030022668/downloads/20030022668.pdf

Yea I know that but that's way less practical than say Ganymede or Titan
