Aestus is a lava planet. This is a very dangerous planet, with pools of deadly lava, large amounts of tough Overseer enemies, plenty of Plasma Drones, and inedible plants giving the whole planet a 'final boss' feel. It is recommended that you bring heavy weaponry, a well-armoured small vessel, plenty of ammo and a change of underwear.

Like most of the Alpha planets, the name comes from Latin, meaning fire or burning.

Erestrum Ore is found here, essential for building capital ships. Don't forget your drill!
