Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Hilarious in Hindsight: Bradbury depicted Venus as being more or less like Earth except the climate consisted entirely of endless precipitation, with stories like "The Long Rain" in which a group of astronauts stranded on are picked off one by one while going insane and longing for the warmth of one of many "Sun-Domes". We now know that Venus is... well... quite the opposite. Now we know that Venus has a thick (insanely toxic) atmosphere that has such a greenhouse effect as to make it the hottest planet in the solar system - and any astronaut trying to land on its surface would be incinerated pretty quickly.
