Fornax Prime

 

Fornax Prime is a close binary star system with multiple planets.  The stars of the Fornax Prime System are a close binary pair consisting of a white/yellow F-class star, and a red dwarf M-class star.

 
Fornax Prime is the unquestioned center of the Fornax Region.  Fornax Prime is the pinnacle of technology, population, and peace in an otherwise turbulent region.

 

First settled over 1,000 years ago, Fornax Prime's primary world had a tumultuous past.  With the planet's large number of ethnic and religious living close to each other, violence was commonplace, numerous world wars took their toll on the planets population.

 

Peace was eventually reached across the planet's population, and a new era of unparalleled growth was born.  The planet's capital called Nova Eden was built as a symbol of the new found peace and prosperity brought onto the planet..

 

Conquering the Fornax Region became the next goal of the Fornax Prime people.  Colonization and terraforming projects have been an ongoing endeavor.

Fornax Prime Planets
       
Fornax Prime B

Fornax Prime B
Fornax Prime B is a large rocky world.  The planets surface is scorched both by intense heat of the nearby sun, and the runaway greenhouse effect.  The planets thick atmosphere of greenhouse gasses nearly doubles the surface temperature from the cloud tops.

Distance: 0.21 AU

Orbit: 34 days

Temp: 557 K

Mass: 3.31 Earth

Radius: 8230 km

Gravity: 1.52 g

Rotation: 50 hours

 

       
       
Fornax Prime C

Fornax Prime C
Fornax Prime C is a terrestrial world with a thin carbon dioxide and nitrogen atmosphere.  The planet's surface is covered in vast endless silicate plains, with a few small areas of rocky highlands.  The planets lack of visable craters points to a recent resurfacing event.

Distance: 0.94 AU

Orbit: 334 days

Temp: 323 K

Mass: 0.55 Earth

Radius: 5372 km

Gravity: 0.78 g

Rotation: 38 hours

 

       
       
Fornax Prime D

Fornax Prime D
Fornax Prime D is the system's primary world.  Colder than Earth, the planet has larger polar ice caps, snow can occur on most parts of the planet.  The land areas consist of one large continent nearly twice the size of Africa, and four smaller continents ranging between the sizes of Australia and Antarctica.  The main continent named Isidora is centered along the planet's equator.

Distance: 1.79 AU

Orbit: 877 days

Temp: 284 K

Mass: 1.26 Earth

Radius: 7071 km

Gravity: 1.03 g

Rotation: 29 hours

       
       
Fornax Prime E

Fornax Prime E
Fornax Prime E and F are similar worlds, both cold and covered in water ice.  Planet E has a nitrogen and carbon dioxide atmosphere.  Sitting closer to the suns than Planet F, Planet E has been considered for terraforming.  Its believed with enough greenhouse gasses, parts of the planet can reach temperatures above freezing.

Distance: 2.82 AU

Orbit: 4.7 years

Temp: 187 K

Mass: 0.24 Earth

Radius: 4435 km

Gravity: 0.50 g

Rotation: 33 hours

 

       
       
Fornax Prime F

Fornax Prime F
Fornax Prime E is a cold world orbiting outside the habitable zone.  The planet has an extremely thin nitrogen atmosphere.  The surface is composed of mostly water ice.  Pockets of underground seas exist below the surface warmed by internal heat, water from these seas can occasionally reach the surface creating sporadic geysers.

Distance: 3.04 AU

Orbit: 5.3 years

Temp: 180 K

Mass: 0.66 Earth

Radius: 5865 km

Gravity: 0.78 g

Rotation: 57 hours
