Vosen is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and is also a low-population vacuum environment with a population less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Nabile Subsector of Bourne Sector.

System Data[edit]

Angell-Vosen System[edit]

The primary is Angell, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.056 Sols, a mass of 0.5214 Sols, and a diameter of 773,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere radworld orbits within the habitable zone. (II) an exotic atmosphere hospitable world, (III) the Vosen Main Belt, designated the mainworld, (IV) a ringed small gas giant, (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VI) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (VII) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Neue Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Neue, an ordinary red main sequence star that orbits Angell at a mean distance of 68.5 AU (orbital position (XI), 10 billion km) and has an orbital period of 785 years. It has a luminosity of 0.0268 Sols, a mass of 0.4258 Sols, and a diameter of 658,000 km. (I) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world orbits within the habitable zone. (II) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (III) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (IV) a ringed large gas giant, (V) a small ice giant, and (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Vosen Main Belt[edit]

(III) the Vosen Main Belt orbits within the outer system and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 0.7 AU from the star and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 50 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 0.55 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of icy bodies, is considered to lie at approximately 0.9 AU. The main inhabited body is named Worthit, with a mean orbital distance of 0.77 AU around Angell and an orbital period of 341 days 19 hours. It has a long axis of 150 km, a density of 7.45 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.016 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrographics. Mean surface temperature: -140°C in sunlight, -195°C in shadow.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

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

World culture[edit]

This settlement is a tiny outpost established in a cooperative effort between, governmental, military and commercial interests. Isolated and left to its own devices, there is significant latitude in how the job gets done. This is a tiny stop over for larger convoys of vessels, military, scouts and merchant explorers headed out looking for new worlds. This represents a tiny cusp of civilization, a thin veneer.
