A Low Temperature Atmosphere is a type of atmosphere known for extremely low temperatures.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The actual gas mixes which go with worlds with hostile temperature ranges will vary. Low-temperature worlds tend to have combinations of methane and ammonia in their atmosphere. [1]

To combat problems of temperature, protective suits and vacc suits must be equipped with suitable heating or cooling equipment, Such equipment (normally built into vacc suits and is available for installation and use with protective suits) will combat the effects of temperatures designated as low or high. Extreme temperatures cause further problems and can put the atmosphere over the edge into an insidious classification without heavy-duty equipment and multiple backup systems. See the section on equipment for some specific items designed to combat these problems. [2]
