System Data[edit]

Goolan-Calsan System[edit]

The primary is Goolan, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.21 Sols, a mass of 1.04 Sols, and a diameter of 1.433 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (IV) Calsan orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) a ringed large gas giant, and (VII) a small gas giant form the outer zone. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Calsan[edit]

(IV) Calsan is designated the mainworld. It orbits primary at a mean distance of 0.98 AU (146.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 350 days 21 hours and a rotation period of 27.5 hours. The axial tilt is 16 degrees. Calsan has a diameter 8,135 km, a density of 5.66 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.66 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.91 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by spores and pollens of organic origin. Approximately 62% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.5m. Mean surface temperature: 24°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellites:[edit]

Calsan retains two satellites a very thin atmosphere hospitable world named Rasenik and an ice capped vacuum worldlet named Pomardo:

(IVa) Rasenik, UWP Y322000-0, orbiting at 25 Diameters (203,000 km)
(IVb) Pomardo, UWP Y201000-0, orbiting at 30 Diameters (244,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 208 million km², Water surface area: 129 million km², Land surface area: 79 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Calsan has extensive native life. Their metabolic processes maintain a cycle of atmospheric renewal.

Calsan possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion, and the most fundamental atomic energy.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ground cars or automobiles and tracked vehicles.
    • Water: Large ships and submersibles with steel hulls.
    • Air: Early aircraft including seaplanes and very early unmanned rockets.
