I am a student at Truman High School. I'm in a new class called electronic research. I would like to know what would be the best material to use if you were going to build a artificial habitat on the planet Venus. The material could be as expensive as you think and please don't limit your imagination

Conditions on Venus :

Temp. 500 degrees celsius. Pressure At least 100 times that on earth (atmospheric pressure).

So you need an outer core that can handle high temp. and pressure.
