"Is Venus the planet with the funny orbit?"
"Not unless round is funny."

it is possible that the gas represents "the last surviving species on a planet that went through a dramatic change in its environment."

This is where we get a lander on the planet that discovers ancient remnants of a civilization like ours, and an ancient launch facility that seems to be optimized for sending ships to Earth.

Humans are part of earth's evolutionary record soooo...  If anything left Venus then it wouldn't be a civilization resembling ours. I think finding even a trace of microbial evidence of past or existing life would be pretty spectacular.

If Venus's orbit didn't make it a hell-world then being almost tidally locked didn't help. The irony is its probably the closest we have to a world humans can survive on, but the list of things that need fixing is beyond our current capability to alter.

I just now realized that in classical Latin, the name of the goddess of beauty and love was pronounced "Weenus."

Heh.
