Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Dezik (Massilia 0228) is a cold, sub gas giant circling a small star.

  • Despite its hydrogen atmosphere, it has a water hydrosphere which is frozen on top and kept liquid underneath by the planet's own heat.
  • This star system is judged to be a very young one, and planets are still contracting and sweeping up asteroidal debris.
