Tylo is one of the four moons of Jool. It has a rocky surface. It is extremely challenging to land on because it possesses a similar gravity well to Kerbin itself, while lacking the benefit of an atmosphere to brake in. Having a spacecraft orbiting very close to the surface can give you orbit periods of about 29 minutes going about 2,170 m/s.


Tylo est un satellite des quatre satellites naturelle de Jool. It has a varying elevation between 0 meters (Tylo baseline height) and peaks of more than 11290 meters. Tylo à de nombreux signe de crash de météore. Due to the coloring of the surface of Tylo, it is likely that it is covered in a rhyolite layer of rock and dust, spread by meteorite impacts. Although very large in comparison to other moons, it is unlikely that it is a captured planet. For a planet of this size, Jool would have to be much larger and denser to produce a large and strong enough gravitational well.
