Re: Potential Habitable Planets

So far the best bets for terraforming Venus seem to involve freezing the CO2 into permanent glaciers of dry ice, or if enough hydrogen can be found there, converting the CO2 into graphite and water via the Bosch process. There could also possibly be major deposits of calcium and magnesium oxides or hydroxides that could be converted to limestone if the temperatures were lower (baking CO2 out of limestone is how we make cement).

Living in an airship about 55 km above of the surface also seems quite feasible.
