To Answer Some F.A.Q:
2. What is the quality of the atmosphere of the planet? You're probably wondering how we made it possible to, you know, breathe, but we’ve created a brand-new, innovative air bubble, much like a personal atmosphere, that surrounds 5% of the planet. This makes it possible to breathe on the planet. We have a constant supply of oxygen flowing at all times.
3. How would humans navigate to get around the planet? There are deluxe fuel-efficient buses to take you on tours, and for the more adventurous kind, there are many trails you can walk on to see some fascinating landforms. Also, the resort rents bikes and every kind of climbing equipment.
4. Could they take side trips to any moons? There are guided expeditions to three of Saturn’s moons: Titan, Enceladus, and Hyperion. You can take a five-person shuttle and wear space suits as you tour the moon of your choice with your family. All of the guides are certified NASA astronauts, highly trained and more than competent.
