KAT is a deep purple planet explored in Mission 26.

During atmospheric entry, the space craft will pass into a blue tinted atmosphere, just like the atmosphere of HOM's. As it descends into the atmosphere, the spacecraft may be obscured momentarily by red clouds. Once it reaches the surface, it will splash-down into a magenta ocean.

From KAT you can reach ADS (835) and EMA (~945).

Trivia

  • A calculation revealed that KAT's radius is 2 NaviComp units. The atmosphere adds .65 units.
  • Despite its distance from HOM, it's closer to SOL than HOM is. 
  • KAT and HOM's atmosphere have an almost identical blue color, but HOM's atmosphere is azure.
  • This planet looks like Neptune, but with a different color, and without the Great Dark Spot.
  • KAT along with JOR and EMA are the only planets that aren't revealed until Mission 26.
  • KAT's name is based on Nooleus's wife, named Kate, in real life.[1]
