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, similar to GRN's. 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]
  • KAT's counterpart in Space Agency 2138 could potentially be K8. However, the two planets are visually distinct, as K8 has no atmosphere and appears a dark shade of copper. This leads to the theory that the planet in Space Agency 2138 could also simply be Nooleus reusing his wife's name for the planet.
