Laius Rift is an icy Death World.
Laius Rift's surface is almost totally covered in glaciers and permanently scoured by deadly blizzards and other extreme climatic phenomena. Archaeological records indicate that the planet's orbit was once significantly closer to its star, which explains its lack of well-developed flora and fauna. Due to its Oxygen/Nitrogen atmosphere, Laius Rift was once host to significant mining operations, all of which ended in 841.M41. Laius Rift's Aestimare is B30.
The planet is currently under the status of Imperius Perdita and forbidden to visit without prior Inquisitorial approval. The mystery of the investigation is deepened by the increasing danger to shipping in the system, and the fact that over 32 Imperial ships have disappeared in the space around Laius within the past 50 years.
