About the Universe

The universe consists of many billions of stars - you'll never be able to visit them all, but that doesn't mean you couldn't have fun trying. The stars vary in color and size - a blue extremely hot supergiant is a quite rare sight, whilst a relatively small red star is the most common. Over half of the systems have only one star, but it has been verified that systems with at least 6 stars exists too.

Roughly half of the solar systems have planets, which come in three types:

  1. gas giants are big, but they don't have surface to land on, so they are not particularly interesting,
  2. rocky or icy planets don't have any kind of vegetation, but they can be explored up close and are good sources of minerals,
  3. gaia type planets have a rich nature with a biosphere, where there are many different plants depending on e.g. altitude, humidity and lattitude; they are your best bet to find a nice place for a summer cottage.

Many lifeforms have been found from the planets around, but so far all of them have been bacteria, plants, insects and small animals. Intelligent life is still waiting to be found.
