Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
Around a yellow dwarf star, we have discovered a small planetary system consisting of two terrestrial worlds, one gas giant reminiscent of Jupiter with a more prominent ring system, and one ice giant. A survey of the gas giant revealed life in its atmosphere! Slowly-sinking microbes purified hydrogen from the atmosphere were preyed upon by giant balloon-like creatures who used the hydrogen to stay aloft, along with winged filter-feeding hunters. Having gathered all the information we need about that fascinating ecosystem, we have also finished surveying the gas giant's dozens of moons and are ready to move on.
