Calveras 413 B/C

Jeff zugale 20170406 01

A binary system in the Orion Arm Expansion Zone, Calveras 413 falls under the claim of Kemp Industries. Planets B and C, shown here, orbit a common center which in turn orbits the larger, dimmer star of the binary. Tidal forces in the system are just barely strong enough to cyclically break both masses up, but not strong enough to completely disrupt them; this makes them essentially giant balls of loose gravel, easy to mine.
