Terran is the starting planet in Astroneer. It's is the only planet with a moon, Barren. The surface of the planet's contains plenty of Compound, Resin, Organic, and if lucky enough, Hydrazine, while the cavern area of this planet provides an adequate amount of Laterite and Malachite. The storm on planet is relatively rare and Power generation in Terran is balanced enough for the player to effectively use Solar Panel, Wind Turbine, and Organic Generator.
The time it takes for a day/night cycle to pass is exactly 10 minutes.
