Astrography and planetology
Due to the extreme cold and gravity most visitors find it necessary to wear Environment Suits during their stay. These suits increase body temperature to species normal while giving support against the effects of gravity and water. These suits, known as 'Exos' can be hired from the starport or from your hotel. Cost is generally about Cr3 per day.
The naval base hosts elements of the 159th Fleet.
