System Data[edit]

Fallon-Kiness System[edit]

The primary is Fallon, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.42 Sols, a mass of 0.825 Sols, and a diameter of 1.263 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Kiness orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (V) a large gas giant, and (VI) a ringed small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Ginega Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Ginega, a red subdwarf star. It has a luminosity of 0.0074 Sols, a mass of 0.134 Sols, and a diameter of 212,000 km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a vacuum iceworld, (III) a large gas giant, (IV) a ringed small ice giant, and (V) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Kiness[edit]

(III) Kiness is designated the mainworld. It orbits Fallon at a mean distance of 0.68 AU (101.7 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 225 days 12 hours and a rotation period of 38 hours. The axial tilt is 21 degrees. Kiness has a diameter of 9,873 km, a density of 4.99 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.70 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.92 bar and a composition of 79% nitrogen (N2), 20% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 48% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 11°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas cross the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite[edit]

Kiness retains a single natural satellite, a trace atmosphere worldlet named Mardon:

(IIIa) Mardon (UWP Y110000-0, orbiting at 30 Diameters/296,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 306 million km², Land surface area: 159 million km², Water surface area: 147 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Kiness, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.
