Background: Me and a friend are trying to "colonize" Mars and Venus. He has Mars, and I have to "colonize" Venus. So, my intention was to do a slow terraform by creating zeppelins that convert CO2 into O2 (and biomass as a byproduct) This is the prototype of the zeppelin, white patches are the inside of the prototype:
- Will be necessary a filter for the H2SO4? (the sulphuric clouds of venus)
- Can graphene solar panels (even on the bottom for the albedo) be enough to power the fans inside/outside the zeppelin? And, do they exist/can exist?
- Materials or paint for sulphuric acid? I know they exist, but I couldn't find if they decay or the materials get rusty and need to get replaced, or if they deteriorate if they go to space.
- Could there be a ventilation system to take the CO2 from the top to the bottom, and then carrying only the O2 outside the zeppelin (without CO2 entering inside?
And, finally, a really space question: Would this be easy to deliver to Venus? Will it be expensive to build?
By the way, don't mind the "micro-bacterial algae" I'm working on it at the moment.
