The red planet, shown as RED on the NaviComp, is a comparatively large planet with no atmosphere, explored in Mission 15, Mission 21 and Mission 35.

This planet is likely the Space Agency analogue of Mars. It has a low gravitational pull. Due to this, it is difficult to land. A failed attempt will result in the lander bouncing off of the surface, or exploding on impact.

From RED (+13) you can reach YEL (875), GRN (730), and LUN (990).


Trivia

  • The radius of the planet has been calculated to be about 2.46 NaviComp units.
  • Using LUN is a great check point especially if you send a few refuel tanks into orbit.
  • Unlike the real-world planet Mars, which RED is based off, RED has no atmosphere.
  • While RED has low gravity (just under 1 NCU/s) it has a large Circle of Influence.
