Sometimes I wish earth had a different colour sky.

Hazy pale green skies would be nice

You have very nice tectonic plates, Venus-senpai

The lander that took that picture only lasted a few hours. That's one of the only photos of Venus' surface.

Ummm, Venus doesn't have tectonic plates -- though it has LOCAL tectonics; faults, folds, volcanos, etc.

Nice things. No snow. no rain. No stupid (but stable) politicians. Though Stephen Hawking has just offered for pay for climate deniers to be sent there.

References say reddish-brown.
And very dim because of cloud cover.

What kind of camera took the photos? The surface must be pitch dark because of the thick atmosphere and clouds.

FastChef

some light would diffuse through, just not reflect out from the surface
I think the tinge on the photo probably has something to do with the camera

there would be more photos, but the soviets couldn't into lens caps

sounds like a joke -- but it's true!
The Soviets had all sorts of trouble with lens caps.

Some wouldn't come off and one did fall off -- but happened to fall right where a soil-sampling probe was aimed. :(

This is what co2 induced global warming does to a planet and what will happen to our own world if we don't stop the far-right soon.

Never been a rover.
Difficult enough to land something stationary and have it function for an hour.
Building something with moving parts would be an engineering nightmare.
But the entire planet's been mapped, from orbit, with radar.

And there have been animations made from that radar data which let you "fly" over the terrain of Venus.

It won't happen any time soon, NASA has neglected space for decades and so they have no launch vehicle, no RTG for probes, no technologies capable of existing on Venus, etc

I'm not even sure how you'd power a rover on Venus.
Your RTG crack made me think.
Any power plant needs to reject heat. The radiators have to be the coldest point in the cycle. But they have to be hotter than their surroundings.
When those surroundings can melt lead, what do you make the RTG out of?

Supergrass

Hmm... looks dusty.
Probably dinosaurs live there and create all the dust by stomping the ground.

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

something that isn't lead.... lets not pretend that 380 celcius - 450 celcius are temperatures that are beyond material capabilities

Most commercial ovens can handle temps that high, or close to that high
The only real problem is cooling down stuff enough to run electronics

V.I. Moroz and his team at IKI designed the IOAV spectrometer which measured the sky at 20 nanometer wavelength intervals and in multiple directions. Below is displayed the zenith sky color as measured during the descent of Venera-11. The small images show the form of the spectrum from 360 to 830 nm, with the area under the curve filled in with the corresponding sRGB standard value. Actual spectral data extended well into the infrared, to identify gas absorption bands. The spectra are converted to XYZ color space via the usual CIE tables, and then converted to a standard gamma corrected RGB space defined for televisions and monitors.
The increasingly orange color is due to rayleigh scattering by the thick atmosphere, and possibly an additional unknown blue-absorbing gas component. Brightness is normalized. The text color for these web pages was chosen to approximate the Venera-11 sky color.

Huh

Doesn't even matter, it's a matter of instrument and organism measurement/conjuration. Colour is arbitrary.

RTGs work at venus temps. The only issue with venus rovers is semi-conductors.

Yeah, most girls that size have at least one beta orbiting them but not venus.

Emberfire

yeah but then instead of being sensitive to blue our eyes would be sensitive to green, and it would end up giving you the same net effect of perception. i.e. you would yearn for a blue sky

NASA has neglected space for decades
They've had cuts but they're still pumping out science missions.
no RTG for probes
They talked the DOE into restarting Plutonium production a couple years back. Assuming all goes well RTG production can resume.
no technologies capable of existing on Venus
This here is is the only real blocker. Well that, money and the fact no one cares about Venus when we have places like Mars.

Didn't some scientist mention something about how the atmosphere or stratosphere is capable of providing a buoyancy for a settlement of some kind?
