KEPLER 22B: Pozhalujsta Outpost[2]

*In the Project Prometheus Website they put two colony entries onto the one star by mistake, in this case both Vanderaart Outpost and Pozhalujsta Outpost are technically on the same planet. Since Kepler is such a huge planet there is the possibility the planet can have two outposts with different Key Resources and Industry.

Kepler-22b is a super-Earth that could be covered in a super ocean. The jury is still out on Kepler-22b’s true nature; at 2.4 times Earth’s radius, it might even be gaseous. But theoretically an ocean world tipped on its side – a bit like our solar system’s ice giant, Uranus – turns out to be comfortably habitable based on recent computer modelling. Researchers found that an exoplanet in Earth’s size range, at a comparable distance from its sun and covered in water, could have an average surface temperature of about 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.5 Celsius). Because of its radical tilt, its north and south poles would be alternately bathed in sunlight and darkness, for half a year each, as the planet circled its star.[4]

TERRAFORMED: 2052-2060 POPULATION: 7,000,000 as of 2071


ESTABLISHED: 2060* INDUSTRY: mining and refining facilities.


NOTES: Low gravity. KEY RESOURCES: magnesium, dysprosium, lead and nickel.

A colony on Kepler 22b which was established in 2060. Taking advantage of the planet’s low gravity and its prolonging effects on equipment, the colony’s industry consisted of mining and refining facilities. Key resources were magnesium, dysprosium, lead and nickel.
