Morning comes, and with it, the sun! The Explorer Atmospheric Probe is recharged, and starts relaying information about the surface! The images relayed back show an eery, purple surface, with a strange sea, glowing green from the Eve sunrise!
Instruments show Eve is as beautiful as it is dangerous… Atmospheric pressure is extreme, as is the gravity.
“Landing, once we get past the heat of reentry, should be easy. Taking off from the surface is going to be very difficult… A fully assembled Aurora Rocket launched from the surface of Eve would have trouble making orbit!”
