It is not impossible to mine a star. Rich with liquid metallic resources, the gas-giant Jupiter challenges harvesters with increased gravity, intense magnetic fields, and extreme temperatures. Only the most tenacious profiteers would dare operate here. Prevailing science of Corpus industry thrives in the clouds of Jupiter's outer atmosphere.
Jupiter is a planet where the Corpus are the controlling faction.
With the rework of planets and missions in Update: Specters of the Rail, Carme is a suitable replacement to the classic Kappa affinity farm. Elite Crewmen, Fusion MOA, Corpus Techs, and other enemies that typically give ~235 affinity per kill spawn frequently.
Prior to Update 11.0 the boss of Jupiter was J3-Golem, the tileset was the Corpus Ship and the Infested were the dominant faction, with the description being "Intel's limited on this area. The system may have been overrun by the Technocyte Plague."
Small amounts of Infested mass can be found in certain rooms of the Gas Planet tileset.
