“You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.”
― Galileo Galilei

It’s a daunting Universe. With untold billions of planets in our galaxy alone, how can we possibly grasp the meaning of life in such far reaches? And yet we do, have been for some time. Humans have been unwrapping the sky with our imaginations for as long as we know. And through it we’ve evolved the wisdom of our species.

The following is the beginnings of a list of planets which fall into the storyline of Dream. As more issues are released, more planets will be added to the list. This is still in a fledgling stage, as there are many factors intentionally left out, such as time (i.e. rotations and revolutions). Planets in their own right are endlessly fascinating, as the habitable ones define how life will appear and behave. And for the storytelling, this is crucial in my own development of the characters.

So far starters, I’ve made a visual aid, a diagram with some basic factors of the planets.

PlanetChart150x1501) Symbol for satellites of the planet. The number equals how many moons it has.

2) Inclination of axis (degrees).

3) Water/Land ratio. Not all, but many of the planets in Dream will be planets existing in the habitable zone of their solar system. The key element to habitable zone terrestrial planets are that they can contain water in liquid form.

4) Number of suns or how many stars reside within the planets solar system.

5) Habitable zone mass by scale. A twelve point system, with “1” planets having the smallest mass, and “12” planets have the greatest mass. Planets with no physical life forms will be given a different point system.

THE PLANETS

EARTH

Earth150x150Allie’s home planet. Though relatively small for a terrestrial planet by galactic standards, Earth carries a rich atmosphere, densely packed with life forming elements, and well-balanced land/water ratios. Life has sustained for long enough to evolve intelligent life forms.

 

 

 

GTEGRA

Gtegra150x150The binary system to which Gtegra belongs was created within an element rich area of the Carina-Sagittarius Arm of our Galaxy. Not only did this produce two stars, but also a solar system with more than twice the planets as ours. Gtegra is much further from its two suns than we are from our one, but the binary system disperses enough heat to produce liquid water. Rich in iron and heavy metals, Gtegra is very red in appearance. It had oceans early in its development, and evidence of early life, though limited. Two civilizations have joined forces to expand its life bearing capabilities, and have succeeded in producing a breathable atmosphere, plant life, and small seas.
