Please read the information about the planets in the spoilers.

In the center of the Kel system is a blue giant called Kel. Blue giants are more rare then a red giant and are the hottest burning star.


The planet closest to Kel is called Forti- 226a. Its 515C on the surface facing towards the star and 435C on the side facing away from the star. Its comprised of mostly granite, naming the planet after the Latin word for strong, and has a solid nickel core. Since Thilles gravity is only about 41% of the earth's gravity, it cannot retain an atmosphere.


The second closest thing in orbit to Kel is called Sanguis-121a, which means blood in Latin. It classifies as a dwarf planet. The planet's red color is due to the high amount of hematite. Hematite, a crystallized form of iron oxide, can be found almost anywhere on the surface and underground As well as iron ores. It has very little gravity meaning it would be almost impossible to maneuver around and will eventually. The surface temperature facing the star is roughly 441C while the side facing away is around 315C. It rotates faster than the earth, thus the day-night cycle much faster. It also has craters that were created by meteor impacts.


The third planet from Kel is called Fornacem-71a. Its name is Latin for furnace for the planet's intense temperatures and volcanic activities on the planet. Humans cannot breathe the air because there is far too much carbon dioxide present in the air composition. The temperature doesn't fluctuate very much during the night and day and stays a relative temperate of 392C., but will cool down but not entirely because of its position to the sun. A huge lava ocean covers 65% of the planet, which was created because the crust was weak due to the fact it is a young planet. Only extreme heat resistant microbes can survive without protective gear. The planet's crust is highly unstable. Volcanos are a common sight and can be found spewing out molten iron and nickel. The most prevalent resources are iron, nickel, and sulfur. The planet has very erratic seismic events. Dry lightning is common due to the volcanic ash. The gravity is relatively weak because the planet is rather new and is 50% of Earth's gravity.


The fourth planet from Kel is called Palus-53a. It's named after 's named after its most notable feature, swamps. There is one large body of water located in the northern part of the planet. It has an atmosphere that humans can respire in it. The life in the swamps is diverse, and it flourishes in the thick plant growth. There are no leviathan class life forms present above or below ground, but there are some in the water. It also has an abundance of wood, tin, copper, and iron, as well as coal, natural gas, and methane and scattered areas of radioactive materials such as uranium. The climate is humid year-round. The gravity present on Palus-53a is 1.5 times greater than that of earth. The temperature on Palms-53a is usually around 37C during the day and about 29.4C at night. Due to the huge number of underground limestone caves present, sinkholes are common. There is very minimal seismic activity at all. The planet's rotation is 5% slower than the earth's. Orbiting it is Palus-53b, an asteroid that was taken by Palus-53a's gravitational field. It is primarily composed of iron, some nickel, and a little bit of cobalt.




The Fifth planet from the Kel is called Ferrugo-2a. In Latin, ferrugo means rust and is named that because of the planet's corrosive atmosphere. The atmosphere is lethal if inhaled. The planet's deep red color comes from iron oxide. Notable resources are iron, copper, and lead. The temperature during the day is around 27C and 19C at night. It has roughly the same amount of gravity as earth, meaning the movement is easy. The planet has very very little seismic activity and has a couple of dormant volcanos.


The Sixth planet from Kel is named Viridi-65a is names green in Latin after it's green forests and it's extensive biome diversity. It is very similar to earth. Oceans cover 60% of the planet while the rest is land. Biomes vary from dense rainforests to rolling grasslands, and lush needle led forests. The wildlife is predominantly herbivore and with some carnivorous creatures that may pose a threat to humans. The oceans as well are teaming with wildlife such as fish and large mammals similar to a whale, also note that dangerous leviathan-class life forms are present in the ocean. The planet is rich in resources too. Resources such as wood, iron, lead, tin, copper, and aluminum too, as well as trace amounts of radioactive materials like uranium deep underground. The planet's gravity is very similar to the earth's gravity and has 1% less gravity and can retain a strong atmosphere. The plane's rotation is 1.5x faster than to rotation of the earth. Temperatures vary throughout the planet and its different biomes. The atmosphere is breathable by humans. Life forms are carbon-based. Viridi has moderate seismic activity and a moderate amount of volcanos, which can be found on plate boundaries. Most of the fruits are poisonous to humans but unharmful to the native wildlife. Orbiting Viridi-65a is one moon, Viridi-65b is a moon that's covered in huge salt flats and completely devoid of life. It has lots of lithium and some aluminum.



Asteroid Belt

The asteroid belt is a ring of asteroids some as big as a basketball some are as big as a football stadium. Even some rocky dwarf planets can be found. The asteroids are rich in iron, and nickel ores.
