Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

we learned about the Russian venus probes in school in the 1970s... the probe survived less than a day... I can't remember how long exactly, just long enough to send some pictures back...

but what about the absolutely catastrophic plate tectonics on Venus?

I saw a documentary once (in the last 10 years) which explained how Venus' plate tectonics work.

I think pressure cooker would be an appropriate analogy....

KABOOOOM!
