Tanga System Description
The main-sequence star at the system’s center has entered into a white dwarf phase. With Tanga’s two planets located on the outer edges of the system, scientists believe its inner planets were destroyed when the star expanded. Miners have found a variety of precious and heavy metals in its asteroid belt and believe the resources to be the remnants of Tanga’s inner planets. The star has ejected its outer layers and formed a picturesque planetary nebula, which draws some sightseers to the system.
- Tanga I
A former gas giant that scientists believe lost its atmosphere when Tanga’s star turned into a red giant. The remaining core is classified as a chthonian planet and is heavy in mineral deposits.
- Tanga II
An ice planet subliming due to the system’s high temperature. As a result, a trail of expelled gases follows Tanga II around in orbit.
- Tanga Belt Alpha
Rich in a variety of precious and heavy metals that scientist theorize are the remnants of the system’s former inner planets before the star expanded.
