The Question of When
Look, it’s Venus, let’s say hi – it is your sister. Billions of years ago it could have looked like Earth, but later, due to the runaway greenhouse effect the water has evaporated. Today Venus is the hottest place in the Solar System.
A long time ago, humans thought the Sun was cooling down and Venus was the little sister which would one day grow up to be like Earth. Today it’s known that the Sun emits more and more energy and Venus is more of an older sister. Did Venus experience its big blue and its destroyers already?
Humans look at their neighbouring planets and wonder about the location of past and future, but maybe it’s just the wrong question?
