Great video but I think none of this will happen because by all this time needed to do it we will have already upload our consciousnesses in silicones ships or similar and we will invent wholes new types of world not needing all that mess of biological constrains... (water, oxygene, 20ºC, 1 bar, day/night cycle, low radiations, and etc)

Could the dry ice be used to initiate some kind of tectonic movement, Venus doesn't have tectonics but it does have geological activity such as volcanoes, could we alter that?

Last year during confinement, I found myself so bored that I fantasized a lot about various subjects, and one of them was space colonization and terraformation. I imagined an advanced alien civilisation, type II to type III on Kardashev scale (closer to type III), and how they could terraform the inner planets of our solar system for us using their advanced technology based on wormholes, not in a matter of milleniums or centuries, but just a few decades through hard terraforming and the use of tremendous means and amounts of matter and energy. And for venus, I came up with this ridiculous 8-step terraforming plan: Before the terraforming, they build 2 megastructures: the 1st one around the Sun to harvest solar energy, and the 2nd one around Jupiter to harvest jovian matter (mainly hydrogen and helium to create other heavier elements). Just as a reminder, you need 5 things to build something: matter, energy, time, workforce and knowledge. 1- Creation of a solar shield => decrease of illumination and radiation levels => decrease of surface temperature 2- Orbit modification to move the planet away from the sun and bring it closer to the habitable zone => decrease of illumination and radiation levels => decrease of surface temperature 3- Inversion and acceleration of the rotation => creation of a stable and regular day/night cycle => equalization of surface temperatures 4- Core's "defibrilation" => creation of a planetary magnetic field => decrease of radiation levels 5- Drilling of volcanic wells in the future oceanic zones to regulate internal pressure and stop volcanism elsewhere, sealing of original volcanoes 6- Exportation of the atmosphere to Jupiter => decrease in atmospheric density => drop in atmospheric pressure => decrease of surface temperature 7- Treatment of soils by large-scale nanotechnological reshuffle => modification of soil composition (suitable for life) over a certain thickness (~ 10m) 8- Import of a terrestrial atmosphere (rich in water) from Jupiter (artificially made) => precipitations (erosion) => formation of rivers, lakes, oceans... => rising water level This leaves us with a perfectly habitable and fertile, yet lifeless world for us to explore, colonize and seed.

On earth, Jeff, Bill, Elon control almost everything on earth and live a happy life on their yachts, mansions, with 11 figure wallets. Obviously they would not live in depressive, dangerous place with zero View to anything. So if they establish a colony one day on Mars, I doubt they are the ones who will leave seasides, lakes, expensive women and gourmet food on earth to living like shit.

How about creating zeppelins filled with cyanobacteria and letting float around the upper layers of Venus' atmosphere, letting CO2 in and O2 out? Then every so often you pull a Zeppelin that is full of cyano-bacteria colonies out of the atmosphere and release the carbon they fixated into space before lowering it down again. So we need satellites or space stations around the planet with pulley systems. That sounds way easier, we just need to find a material strong enough to withstand the acidic clouds, but still light enough to float in the extremely dense atmosphere of Venus. Which must be a lot easier then figuring out how to create giant mirrors and keeping them in the right place at all times then slinging CO2 out of the atmosphere from the surface, etc. Also, if I am not mistaken there is already a lot of water on Venus, it just is not liquid due to pressure, temperature and interaction with other molecules. I don't know if we need to transport all that much to Venus if we fix those problems.
