HX-8 II

HX-8 II is a terrestrial world in the HX-8 System. It has a toxic atmosphere but can be breathed without a spacesuit using a proper facemask (to filter out Carbon dioxide). Average temperatures are cool and they can get close to but never rise above room temperature. The surface temperatures vary widely but can be extremely cold. The surface is barren looking but does contain some microbial life forms.

The NMX has a small starport on this planet.
