Baradis is an icy, barren vacuum world, with no overt population, government, or law level, which would warrant hazardous environment precautions if anyone lived here.

  • Its surface is ice-capped with little or no atmosphere and nearly all of its water frozen.
  • This world could be populated by a determined group if they had an inclination to do so...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Baradis Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System data[edit]

Fashu-Baradis System[edit]

The primary is Fashu, a red giant star. It has a luminosity of 1918 Sols, a mass of 7.18 Sols, and a diameter of 271 million km – the corona of the star extends to 0.91 AU, within orbital position (IV). The inner system consists of (V) a vacuum worldlet, (VI) a vacuum inner world, (VII) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (VIII) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (IX) a dense atmosphere stormworld – orbital positions (I) to (III) lie within the star and orbital position (IV) is empty. (X) Clessor, a small gas giant, orbits within the habitable zone: (Xa) Baradis is its only moon and is designated the mainworld. Only the stormworld and Clessor retain satellites.

(X) Clessor[edit]

(X) Clessor is a small gas giant that orbits Fashu at a mean distance of 69.6 AU (10.4 billion km) and has an orbital period of 216 years 254 days. It has a diameter of 38,000km and is a pale blue colour. It retains a family of two major satellites of which the outer, (Xb) Baradis, is designated the mainworld.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(Xb) Baradis[edit]

(Xb) Baradis is the outer of the two major moons of (X) Clessor and is designated the mainworld. Baradis orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 13 diameters (494,000 km), with an orbital period of 40 days 9 hours: it is tidally locked to Clessor. The axial tilt is 6 degrees. Baradis has a diameter of 2,944 km, a density of 4.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.18 G. The world is geologically inert, though it experiences minor geological activity due to tidal stresses. Its atmosphere is rated as Vacuum. Approximately 19% of the surface is covered in sheets of water-ice. Mean surface temperature: -15°C.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 27 million km², Land surface area: 22 million km², Ice surface area: 5 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

No world in the Baradis system is known to have native life.
