As a brown dwarf, Salsasia is one of three major bodies in the Greeop system.


Orbiting Bodies

It not only has eight major satellites, but hundreds of minor orbiting bodies as well. Although the moons of Salsasia receive minimal light from either star in this star system, Salsasia itself provides a considerable amount of heat that gives the moons with atmospheres a reasonably cool and sometimes temperate climate. These conditions have caused life living on the planet impossible. Space travel between the habitable moons is not recommended due to the high number of moons (ten) and several hundred minor asteroid and orb class objects orbiting the planet.

One point of interest is the fact that three of Salsasia's moons actually orbit each other. These three moons are called Salsasia IVa, Salsasia IVb and Salsasia IVc. Each of these moons has relatively the same size and mass, but only Salsasia IVb has an atmosphere. The other two Salsasia IV moons are somewhat rich in various heavy metals. The other moons and minor objects have various resources which can be mined with further development of the star system, but would be a dangerous operation to pursue due to the instability of the moons and asteroids that orbit the planet.
