Eos is the planet closest to the star Atos.

Micras and Tarsica can be seen to the right of Eos in a photograph taken by the IASS-00E1 probe.

The first of the research probes to be launched as part of the Inner Atos System Survey, the IASS-00E1 was deployed on 36/1/35 PSSC, and arrived in orbit in early 36 PSSC. Deployed on a mission to gather geographic and atmospheric data relating to the Eosian surface, the it is expected that the data collected of the IASS-00E1 will greatly aid researchers in their efforts to compile multiple detailed maps of the planet.

The probe, which traveled to within 180,841 kilometers of the planet's surface before rapidly descending to an orbit at only around 5,550 km from the surface, is designed to remain in orbit, following its arrival at the planet, for around four years. With that said, it is unclear whether the probe will be able to fully withstand the high temperatures and extreme tidal pressures which it will experience while in orbit around Eos.
