Neolotus

 

Neolotus is a planetary system orbiting a yellow G-class star.  The system lies in the Phoenix Constellation of the Achernar Region.

 
The primary planet of the Neolotus system needed some terraforming to become fully habitable. Genetically modified bacteria was spread across the soil over the planet's surface. The bacteria helped convert the carbon dioxide atmosphere into oxygen, increasing the oxygen levels across the entire surface.

Though opposition to the terraforming occurred, as the increase in oxygen caused mass extinction across the young ecosystem. The planet was able to be colonized by a significant population, though it's path of natural evolution was greatly modified.

Regardless, thanks to the terraforming, the planet was able to grow a population into the billions. The planet has become a manufacturing center, along with a growing economic power.

Neolotus Planets
       

Neolotus B
Neolotus B is a terrestrial world hidden under a thick carbon dioxide atmosphere. The planet has a common runaway greenhouse atmosphere similar to Venus. There are trace amounts of neon gasses in the upper cloud layers.

Distance: 0.4 AU

Orbit: 106 days

Temp: 300 K

Mass: 0.72 Earth

Radius: 5940 km

Gravity: 0.83 g

Rotation: 645 hours

Moon(s): 0

       
       

Neolotus C
Nelotus C is a habitable terrestrial world. The planet's once had a carbon dioxide atmosphere with limited free oxygen, and a young, developing ecosystem. Terraforming projects altered the planet's atmosphere increasing the amount of oxygen to breathable levels, this caused mass extinctions throughout the young ecosystem. The planet's land masses are separated into 3 major continents.

Distance: 0.72 AU

Orbit: 256 days

Temp: 277 K

Mass: 1.17 Earth

Radius: 6843 km

Gravity: 1.02 g

Rotation: 25 hours

Moon(s): 1

       
       

Neolotus D
Neolotus D is a terrestrial world that orbits on the outside edge of the habitable zone.  The planet is too cold for liquid water to form outside of rare occasions.  The surface of composed of iron and silicate rock, with deposits of sulfur and iron oxide.

Distance: 1.36 AU

Orbit: 656 days

Temp: 188 K

Mass: 1.71 Earth

Radius: 7564 km

Gravity: 1.22 g

Rotation: 53 hours

Moon(s): 1

       
       

Neolotus E
Neolotus E is a gas giant containing 3/4 of Jupiter's mass.  The planet contains a dense, cloudy atmosphere that is a mixture of hydrogen, helium, and neon.

Distance: 4.48 AU

Orbit: 10.8 years

Temp: 95 K

Mass: 0.75 Jupiter

Radius: 65435 km

Gravity: 2.27 g

Rotation: 12 hours

Moon(s): 24
