System Data[edit]

Sharbin-Mousak System[edit]

The primary is Sharbin, a red subdwarf star. It has a luminosity of 0.0038 Sols, a mass of 0.114 Sols, and a diameter of 167,000 km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) Deena, a ringed small gas giant: (IIa) Mousak is its inner moon and is designated the mainworld, (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (IV) a thin atmosphere radworld, (V) a sparse rocky planetoid belt, (VI) a ringed large gas giant, and (VII) a trace atmosphere worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

(II) Deena[edit]

(II) Deena is a ringed small gas giant that orbits Sharbin at a mean distance of 0.38 AU (56.8 million km) and has an orbital period of 253 days 10 hours. It has a diameter of 45,000 km and is a faintly banded pale blue colour. It retains a family of three major satellites of which the inner, (IIa) Mousak, is designated the mainworld.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IIa) Mousak[edit]

(IIa) Mousak is the inner of the three major moons of (II) Deena and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 9 diameters (405,000 km), with an orbital period of 34 days 1 hour: it is tidally locked to Deena. It has an axial tilt of 2 degrees. Mousak has a diameter of 4,472 km, a density of 4.61 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.30 G. Tidal stresses caused by the gravitational pull of Deena cause regular geological activity. It retains an atmosphere rated as Vacuum. Around 10% of the surface is covered in a crust of water ice. Mean surface temperature: -65°C.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 62.8 million km², Land surface area: 56.5 million km², Ice surface area: 6.3 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

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