Sarvin (also known as Gas Planet 2) is a ringed, lightly-colored gas giant first introduced in Kerbol Plus, and the seventh planet in the Kerbol system. It is a direct recreation of the proposed Gas Planet 2 that former developer NovaSalisko tried to implement into the game. Currently, it is in Kerbol Origins and has five medium-sized, icy moons.

In-Game Description

This beautiful blue gas giant was once thought to be have what looked like ears, that is until scientists learned to clean the lens of their telescopes.

Natural Satellites

  • Daphy: In inner most moon said to be an asteroid covered in "fluff".
  • Potatus: Sarvin second moon with a highly inclined orbit. Its oblong shape is the result of a high rotational speed.
  • Eeloo: Intended to be a satellite of Gas Planet 2 and have an active surface, with cryovolcanic phenomena, it is now Sarvin's third moon.
  • Fonso: This extremely mountainous moon has a thin atmosphere, which would have made it the second moon in the Kerbol system with an atmosphere.
  • Shayle: Shayle was not in NovaSilisko's plan for Gas Planet 2. The Kerbol Plus version has a large impact creator on one side while the Kerbol Origins version has a radioactive green color potted with small crators.
