A post singularity high tech hard sci-fi milieu of a sentient robot from Mercury visiting Venus to assess an investment opportunity in 5000CE. More
This story is a short milieu of Venus set in approximtely 5000CE. It is intended as a hard sci-fi and most of the technologies in it are already available in one form or another. Notably NASA has found that silicon carbide chips can endure the pressures and temperatures of Venus, even though most metals would glow a dark red color during those temperatures.
The fictional universe is one focused primarily on self-replicating robots, and by 5000CE the Moon and Mercury have already been fully colonized, and Venus is the pioneering ground.
