The TARDIS orbiting Moho.
Telescopic view of Moho in 0.17

Moho is the innermost planet of the Kerbol star system. Due to its close proximity to Kerbol the thin atmosphere's temperature is debilitatingly high; rockets overheat easily and landing requires a high thrust-to-weight ratio and/or heat-resistant rocket designs.


  • Solar Day: ... hours, or ... hours, ... seconds.

Orbital Characteristics


The surface is very mountainous, with surprisingly few craters. The crust almost looks fractured. Up close it is much redder than in the map view and has many white dots.


Moho has a very thin, very hot atmosphere that poses a heat threat to most or all rocket motors.

Natural Satellites

Moho has no natural satellites.
