Pas-51

SAM

Mass Effect



DATA:
Orbital distance: 216.2 AU
Orbital period: 752.6 years
Radius: 9694 km
Atmospheric pressure: 0.12 atmospheres
Surface temperature: 408C

ANALYSIS:
Many of the conditions on Pas-51 are amenable to the development of life (microbial, at least), but its searing temperatures are an obstacle not easily overcome.

Mountain

DATA:
Height: 8.8 km
Origin: Tectonic

ANALYSIS:
Water vapor escapes from cracks in this mountain, suggesting that somewhere deep underground—where temperatures are far cooler—a reservoir may exist. If lifeforms exist on Pas-51, it will be there.
