Frontier 2 is instructed to attempt to dip into the atmosphere of Sarnus! The probe will go down to an altitude of 576k, an altitude that some scientists fear might be fatal to the probe!
Thankfully the probe didn’t enter deep enough to be burned to a crisp – and KSEA engineers find new insights about Sarnus – such as how the atmosphere is so incredibly light that if there were an ocean big enough, Sarnus would float! Next up for Frontier 2, a wider orbit will be reached, and an attempt to encounter Tekto! KSEA estimates this will exhaust the probe’s fuel.
