Titan submersible maker OceanGate co founder wants to send 1000 people to Venus by 2050

Remember the Titan submersible? On June 18 this year, the Titan submarine was destroyed in an underwater explosion. There were 5 people in it. Everyone had descended into the sea to see the wreck of the Titanic. Guillermo Söhnlein, co-founder of Titan submarine company OceanGate, now has his eyes set on a new goal. Their plan is to send 1,000 humans to live in the atmosphere of Venus by the year 2050.

Sohnlein says the plan is ambitious, but he thinks it's possible to do it by 2050, Business Insider reports. Sohnlein compared his goal to a tweet by Elon Musk. In January 2020, Musk had said that his goal is to send 1 million people to the surface of Mars by 2050.

Forget Oceangate, he said. Forget Titan. Forget Stockton. The purpose of Sohnlein's Oceangate is not to send humans to Venus. He has been working on this for a long time through the Humans2Venus project.

In the year 2020, he started Humans2Venus. He is its founder and chairman. Sohnlein's objective was to send humans into the atmosphere of Venus. How will it be? The answer to this is not yet. Remember that the atmosphere of Venus is very hot and harsh. It is impossible for humans to live there without security measures.

However, Sohnlein, quoting a research paper, claims that there is an area in the atmosphere of Venus, 30 miles above the planet's surface, where humans can stay. The temperature and pressure are very low there. Sohnlein advocates a space station that can withstand sulfuric acid. He says that if this happens, hundreds to thousands of humans can live in the atmosphere of Venus. It is noteworthy that the atmosphere of Venus is mainly made of carbon dioxide and it rains sulfuric acid.
