Arial is a moon of Hurston. This moon was named after the 3rd CEO of Hurston Dynamics, Arial Hurston, who was known for creating the controversial Life/Labor-style employee contract.

Atmosphere

Surface pressure 0.8 atm
Height 20,500 m

Composition

Arial's atmosphere primarily contains nitrogen, although trace amounts of methane and hydrogen are present as well. It is toxic to humans; breathing equipment is mandatory. Surface conditions on the moon tend to be hazy, and its temperature causes shimmering refraction effects, further reducing visibility.

Chemical Formula Full Name Amount
N Nitrogen 97.7%
CH4 Methane 1.8%
H Hydrogen 0.53%

Surface Outposts

HDMS-Bezdec

HDMS-Lathan

Satellites

A small cluster of asteroids surrounded by human debris is present above HDMS Lathan.

Trivia

While initially named Ariel, this was changed to Arial on the approach to implementation in Alpha 3.3, likely to disambiguate from Uranus' moon Ariel which is present on the ARK Starmap
