Life on Other Worlds > Life on the Planets

Ah, Venus! Goddess planet shrouded in mystery. About the only thing that astronomers knew about Venus in the '30s was that it was smaller than Earth, had a a bit more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and a heck of a lot of clouds. In pure run-with-it logic the clouds meant lot of water and the CO2 meant an atmosphere like prehistoric Earth.  Conclusion: Carboniferous swamps over the whole planet inhabited by dinosaurs.  

Also Munchkin villages. A pity that we now know that the planet has a surface temperature of 900° C, pressure that would flatten Don King's hair, and a constant rain of sulphuric acid.  

Still, rates are reasonable.
