General Characteristics – Athena

Of all the colonial worlds, Athena most resembles Earth. Its diameter measures 96 percent of Earth’s creating a surface gravity 94 percent as strong as Earth’s. Land covers approximately 24 percent of the planet’s surface area and is divided into six continents distributed evenly over the surface. Although Athena possesses less land area than Earth, the absence of a polar continent like Antarctica makes a greater percentage of Athena’s land habitable.
