Venus has temperatures that melt lead and fry electronics in minutes to hours, pressures that would crush a nuclear submarine, and sulfuric acid rain. Can a rover survive? Try a wind-powered clockwork rover. Inspirations: wind-driven kinetic sculptures/”lifeforms” that roam Dutch beaches and a 2000-year-old mechanical astronomical computer found in an Aegean shipwreck; also plans for robotic/manned airship exploration and cloud cities in the more temperate upper atmosphere. It concludes with possible atmospheric lifeforms anticipated by Arthur Conan Doyle and Carl Sagan.
