We'd sound like Donald Duck on Venus. Furthermore, Venus' atmosphere contains far more carbon dioxide than Earth's, which is mostly nitrogen. Carbon dioxide absorbs more sound than nitrogen, causing sounds to be muffled and appear small or distant. The pitch of a note is determined by the length of time that it is played, so at a fixed frequency, the higher the note, the shorter the tone.
Venus has an average surface temperature of 450 degrees Fahrenheit (232 degrees Celsius). Because metal heats up when exposed to heat, instruments would need to be made of some material that doesn't get too hot to touch under these conditions, such as wood or plastic.
However, because wood expands when it gets hot, instruments would need to be tuned regularly to keep them in tune. Also, because oil and fat decompose at different rates when heated, meat cooked over an open fire would go bad before the vegetables become tender. To avoid this problem, food would have to be rotated every few hours during cooking.
Electric lights would not work at such high temperatures, so people would need to rely on natural light for illumination.
It is estimated that there are 10 million tons of rock on Venus' surface, most of it iron ore. This means that there is enough material to construct a large number of spades, picks, shovels, etc.
With temperatures that would melt lead, an atmosphere so dense it would crush you, and clouds of sulfuric acid that smell like rotten eggs to top it all off, the surface of Venus is not where you want to be! Venus's atmosphere is extremely hot and dense. Because there is no place for air to escape, the atmosphere gets thicker and thicker until it reaches Earth's surface, which is why everything on Venus is covered in a thick layer of sulfur dioxide. Even though Venus is mostly made of iron, some of its rocks are also covered in layers of oxide.
In addition to being very unpleasant, living on Venus would be quite dangerous. The pressure at ground level is 90 times more than what we can bear, and even small changes in temperature affect this pressure greatly. If the cloud cover were to disappear from above the planet, temperatures would rise by about 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius). This would destroy any life on Venus in only hours. As it is, even today organisms cannot survive on Venus for more than a few minutes.
The scent of eggs has been described as "a mixture of ammonia and bleach" on Venus because of the presence of nitrogen and oxygen gases in the atmosphere. However, these gases are usually found together with carbon dioxide or other substances that cause problems for living organisms. Studies have shown that there is no biological process that could produce the smell of eggs on Venus, so it must be coming from something non-living.
Carbon dioxide, a deadly, suffocating gas that would kill any living species if breathed in, makes up nearly all of Venus' atmosphere. The pressure on Earth-like Venus is 93 times more than it is on Earth. Any life that developed there would be subjected to these extreme conditions.
However, some scientists believe that there is water vapor in the atmosphere of Venus. If this is true, then perhaps there is life out there somewhere else in the solar system looking up at Venus as its home planet.
Venus was originally thought to be completely airless, but in 1990 the Galileo spacecraft discovered evidence of water vapor in the atmosphere. Since then, several other missions have found further proof that Venus has an oxygen-rich atmosphere.
The problem with this hypothesis is that anyone breathing in enough carbon dioxide would eventually die. Even though Venus's surface is hot, any creature there would still be killed by the intense heat of the sun. It seems unlikely that life could have evolved multiple times on different planets within the solar system and survived.
Furthermore, even if there were organisms on Venus right now, they would be extinct because the pressure would not allow them to breathe.
