Give a Planet a Makeover

Today, Angela and I made our own planet! We can control the age, the temperature, the size and the star type (F, G, or M). We also made many different ones and the results we got were:

  • Gas Giant
  • Earth-like planet
  • Super-Earth
  • Hot Rock
  • Iceball
  • Hot Jupitor (or Neptune)

You can start with a default planet (Earth, G1 581, and Mars), and simply design and engineer your planet from there.

Our planet is very close to the sun: very large and hot. Additionally, our star is class G, and it is 7 billion years old. It is called the Hot Jupitor (or Neptune).
