Draw a picture of your design for a base for astronauts to live on Venus.
Remember all the problems that Tanno and Iguda had when they visited Venus: the hot temperatures and pressures, and the thick atmosphere, including sulfuric acid clouds. It also has volcanoes at the surface, which they missed as they didn’t land their spaceship, the Widget.
Label your picture to explain what features your base has to help overcome those problems.
