Template:Planetbox Dres is a Planet released in version 0.18. It is located between Duna and Jool, in a somewhat eccentric and inclined orbit. It is considered to be the Ceres analog of the Kerbolar system. The surface of Dres is pale white and very rocky and uneven, similar to the surface of the Mun. Unlike the Mun, there are large patches of what appear to be ice.


The surface of Dres is similar to that of Mün in a surface covered in regolith rubble. One notable feature is a several kilometers deep canyon.

Why Dres is a Planet

According to the IAU definition of a planet,

A planet is a celestial body which:

1. Is in orbit around the Sun,

2. Has sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly round shape), and

3. Has "cleared the neighbourhood" around its orbit.

Dres, a celestial body, orbits kerbol, has a nearly spherical shape, and has cleared it's neighborhood of debris.
