Dying or leaving an extreme planet will require you to start at Sol 0. You can’t sit in your starship but you can stay inside a building or hide in a cave to be safe from the weather.

You can arrive on a planet with one of these hazards but not be extreme. Make sure the word “Extreme” is listed above the bar.
