Planet Unistarch, sometimes referred to as 'Domuidol', is the home planet of the Waterbe. It is the fourth planet in the Shraak Prime system. Almost all of Waterbien history apart from the most recent 12 years has been on Unistarch, as it has a thick atmosphere and enough gravity to make anything less powerful than rockets unable to escape.
It was once though that Unistarch, and Shraak Prime that it orbits, was some kind of divine being or gift from the domini caritas, as it seemed to be the only planet that supported life. It was later found, due to advances in viritrac, that Unistarch was actually in a special orbit that gave it just under the right temperature to support life, and that the Law of Observation was what caused Unistarch to be observed to be in that orbit. However, even further advances in viritrac shown that the special orbit was not permament, and was shifting outwards very slowly. It has been predicted that Unistarch will not be able to sustain life in just 125 million waterbe years.
Its rotation is not stabilised by a moon, but evidence suggests that a large body passed by Unistarch between 0.96 and 1.01 billion years ago and tugged it in just the right way to tilt it towards Shraak Prime and disturb the oceans. These oceans, being disturbed greatly by the astronomical body, absored a large amount of rock and soil, providing Unistarch with minerals required to form the complex chemicals that make up life.
The atmosphere, known is waterbien as the aertus, is the thin film of gas surrounding Unistarch's surface. It is around 600 kilometers thick, but the outer reaches are so sparse that even travelling at many thousands kilometers an hour the effects are negligable. Even then, after large amounts of time in space adjustments are needed for the orbit.
The Waterbe, and all other life on unistarch, has affected the atmosphere a lot. Early unistarch had a toxic atmosphere, containing many deadly gases, but the advent of life slowly converted the atmosphere into its current form, containing Element ¬¬ and Element ¬|\|\|.
Due partially to the abundance of Element ¬¬, the Waterbien sky is medium blue.
The study of Unistarch is called viridom, the Waterbien prefix for 'green', viri-, (as the Waterbe associate the colour green with science) and the Waterbien suffix for 'Unistarch', -dom. The cutting edge study of viridom is mainly processed by computers, which distribute experimental data and observed records through a network of thousands of computers, with each 'packet' of data being up to 4 petabytes in size (however due to the infrastructure, sizes are often closer to 3 and ¾ of a petabyte). This data is then processed and information is sent to supercomputers.
The planet unistarch has a diverse ecosystem, home to 9 million species. They include:
