Thugra Posted October 16, 2020 Share Posted October 16, 2020 Anyone who has looked at the interactive 3D map of the Dual Universe system on the dual.sh website has probably noticed that the orbits of 3 of the planets are highly inclined relative to the plane of the ecliptic (the flat plane along which the other 9 planets orbit). By placing a protractor on top of a side view of the system, you can measure this inclination. It's a bit hard to eyeball it, but it looks to me like the orbits of Sicari and Sinnen are inclined by 44 degrees, Feli by 48 degrees and Jago by small amount, maybe 2 degrees. Compare this with our own Solar System, where the orbit of Pluto is inclined by 17 degrees. It kind of makes you wonder why the orbits of these 3 planets are inclined by so much. Feli's surface is marked by what looks like a giant impact crater. Did the impact that caused this crater knock Feli's orbit off the plane of the ecliptic? (and maybe also affected the orbits of Sicari and Sinnen). How about the giant canyon on Thades? It is reminiscent of the Valles Marineris canyon on Mars, but is much larger and deeper. Was it caused by a giant impact or some other natural cataclysm? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
