There we go! Hope this helps! :)
at school, i'm doing a project about how we could settle different planets. and i just want to ask, anyone got knowledge or links on what must happen?
io rely need answers in today, as the project is for tommorow. ta.
There we go! Hope this helps! :)

Any planet, or neptune in particular?
You'll be hardpressed to settle on a gas planet. Skip 'em.
What kind of settling, in a network of buildings or like how we live on Earth currently?
EDIT- Fire Harte's links are good enough. Be sure to go to the links at the bottom of the Wikipedia page if you need to use legit sources for a bibliography.
my group is given specifically neptune. apparently it has a solid mantle, and is rather warm.
Ouch. That's a lot harder. The problem with Neptune is the varying temperatures. You can't have it too hot or all your water boils away, and proteins unravel. Since Neptune is so far from the Sun, you won't be receiving sufficient solar light to grow plants which help create an oxygen based atmosphere. Is the mantle solid, is it hot? What would the gravity be like on the "surface" of Neptune in relation to Earth's?
Okay, Neptune is tricky.
First of all, it's a Gas Giant. 19 times smaller than Jupiter, but gas giant nonetheless. It is also cold, very, very cold, and it's atmosphere is home to the most horrifying hurricanes of the entire solar system.
Neptune has a gas atmosphere, and a mantle. Here comes another problem. The mantle is liquid, and it's hot (2000 to 5000K). It exists, in fact, only because the atmospheric pressure reaches so formidable levels that methane gas solidifies into methane ice. Human life is impossible on the mantle.
Deep down, there is an earth-sized rock and ice core. It is cold, with no molten rocks.
Life on Neptune is impossible. Terraforming Neptune is, imho, impossible. It's just...too extreme, too different from the Earth. A viable solution would perhaps then be either:
1) Orbital gas mining stations (Neptune is made of gases in which mankind has the highest level of interest)
2) Go terraform Triton, Neptunes'smain (and by many aspects, very odd) satellite. It is roughly an Earth-sized Moon, so things should be easier down there.

Terraforming Neptune? That's crazy. You would need several things that are (currently) impossible.
1. Something akin to the philosopher's stone to convert one base element into another.
3. Full all out weather control.
4. Robots that can work for thousands of years without complaint.
Now, take a deep breath. Repeat after me "This is a miniature wargame forum. This place is only as good as I make it. The decision is mine. It does not control my destiny. It does not effect my paycheck. It does not make my mother love me any less. It is a fun place where I can talk to others that feel the way I do."

well basically all the inner planets ( earth, mars, venus, and mercury) have solid ground
if you were to step through any outer planets ( neptune, E.T.C) you will just fall right through
outer planets are all made of gasses
Why Neptune? =/
Mars all the way man!
darn and i though i was given all the bad topics for projects
high five bro
