Meltra II

A strange world with a super dense atmosphere and planetary rings. However, the strangest thing of all about Meltra II is that it contains a nanotechnological biosphere underneath its thick layer of clouds. It is unknown who sowed the planet with these nanotech microbes, but studies are underway.
