Planet Dazbog of the Delta Trianguli system

Post by NuclearVacuum on 19th August 2008, 7:30 pm

As far as I remember, this section is to discuss fictional and plausible planets. So, I am posting my planetary system... again (since I've updated a lot about it).

Dazbog is a rocky planet approximately 35 light-years away from the Earth. The planet orbits the close binary star system of Delta Trianguli (known locally as the Dreieck system). The two stars are both main sequence stars (one is a G-type and the other is a K-type) that orbit close enough to each other that planets (even habitable ones) can orbit the system safely. Orbiting the two suns are 10 planets (five Terrestrial planets and five Jovian planets).

The second planet orbiting in the system is Dazbog. Dazbog is a Terrestrial planet that is about the same size as the Earth. The planet is also a Gaian type planet, but not the same subtype as the Earth. The Earth is classified as a EuGaian subtype planet (which is covered with water and pure oxygen), Dazbog is a ChloriticGaian subtype. In Layman's terms, a "ChloriticGaian" is an Earth-like planet, but contains pure chlorine and is covered with hydrochloric acid (giving the planet a distinct green glow). Though the planet seems to be a hell, this chemistry can, and is, supporting life. Though not carbon-based life (like on the Earth), phosphorous-based life can survive these conditions.

As reading this, Dazbog seems to be not a hell, but a paradise, a paradise that can be imaginated. So, you are the first one to present one of your planetary systems in this new World Building section. And I see that you are a good planet's creator. I hope that your other planets will be good, and the planetary systems from other members too.

Bye

Chlorine would probably be only a minor constituent of the atmosphere because of its reactivity, but only a small percentage would be very unpleasant for humans and turn the atmosphere noticeably green.

Say goodbye to any possibility of an ozone layer on such a planet -- I'd suspect that life would have to be aquatic to shield itself from solar radiation, and close binary systems such as Delta Trianguli are more prone to flaring than single stars.

I usually put sulfur over chlorine in the Dazbogan atmosphere. But I am not too good with atmospheric chemistry.

Hm, never though about that. Wouldn't the magnetic field shield the radiation (or at least most of it). As I like to put it, most of the animal life on Dazbog is "aquatic", where as most of the plant life is "terrestrial." Don't plants do better in radiation than do animals?

Magnetic fields shield against charged particles. It won't stop the ultraviolet/X-rays.

I did read something that chlorine photosynthesis would need UV light to work... so this might work after all.

I have done a complete rewrite on my Dazbog article.

Beautiful article, gotta say. And nice pictures provided. *I also like the brand new avatar of yours, with stylized components of Del Tri A-B*

About the "alien girl", I notice a bit of "eerie" and manga influence *lol* Razz

I would like trying a drawing, if you provide me references and descriptions. Smile

I'm just intrigued about how is economically feasible to have human oxygen-breathers as slaves in a chloride atmosphere with high UV doses

Should'nt be humans toxic to any native of a ChloriticGaian ecology?

I am still working on it, but I am coming up with an idea for how any species can survive in the most hellish of conditions. Something like a skin-tight spacesuit, that you would not recognize that it is even on. (Since my world is SciFi)

I have to admit I'm a bit envious at how the things mesh together. ((The artwork I mean.))

So the civilisation's technology is at a level where they can effortlessly keep humans alive on a chlorine planet, but they still use slaves? Are they just sadistic psychopaths, or what?

Gotta admit, that's an extremely good point. Razz

Actually, only a few Yadderevoes use slaves. Slavery never happened in their history (since they are isolating in nature). Slavery was brought to them from their interstellar neighbors. They are most certainly not psychopaths. Razz

I am curious why the interstellar neighbors use slavery, if they have the technology to traverse the stars. Razz

I got the idea from watching Star Trek (so blame Gene Roddenberry). Razz

I could buy the "pet" approach better than the "slave" one Smile
