Asp Geyser in BD+74 526 B 3 A

Geysers and an Asp Explorer

Geysers are vents in the surface of a planet or moon which have periodical eruptions of hot water or steam. They're rare on planets without atmospheres, but are present in the galaxy. They don't always vent, because it takes time to build up pressure. This makes them hard to spot.

The Codex has two categories: geysers and ice geysers. A regular geyser emits steam. An ice geyser emits a liquid, water-like substance.

It's possible to propel an SRV into the air by sitting on top of a geyser. For example in this video an SRV jumps 13 km high at a geyser on Enceladus in Sol.

  5. More volcanism on CD-86 4 4 c a, so are these also silicate vapour geysers?
