Engineer Dez Clarke and Geologist Dr. James Lloyd discuss their rough arrival at Venus.
With searing temperatures, crushing pressures, and storms of scalding sulfuric acid, our deadly sisterworld has remained shrouded in myth and mystery—until now. DAEDALUS ONE is a year–long voyage to Venus to explore the planet’s surface and atmosphere via an amazing floating research station. Its international crew is comprised of five astronauts and four cybernetic lifeforms called ‘exospheres’.
Aside from witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime geological event—the melting and reforming of Venus’ entire surface—the goal is to test whether or not people and A.I.s can live and work together on a claustrophobic, long-duration mission. The outcome may determine if dangerous and expensive human spaceflight to the planets will continue at all.
The DAEDALUS ONE Science Platform hovers high above the searing night side of Venus.
After a catastrophic arrival, the team is forced to overcome their differences if they hope to survive and unravel the puzzle of why Venus has become the hellish environment it is today. Why was there a runaway greenhouse effect? What happens to internal heat when there are no plate tectonics? Is there life floating at the planet’s cloud tops? It’s up to the crew to find out.
