Sturja V

Sturja V


Sturja V is the first planet beyond the asteroid belt from the central star in the Sturja System.

Sturja V is a giant ball of heavy metals obstinately resistant to mining. Three majors hazards prevent exploitation of the planets resources. First, a thick crust, about 1 kilometer thick, of silicate dirt seems to be evenly distributed across the surface. Second, the planet’s surface temperature is consistently below 255 K (-18 °C / 0 °F). Finally the surface gravity is a crushing 10 times that of the safe human work limit.
