The Surface Temperature of an object represents the average temperature of the surface of an object. Object types including Stars, Black Holes, Fragments, and Human-Scale Objects have only a single Surface Temperature property to represent the temperature of the entire surface of the object.
The Surface Temperature of an object is also displayed in its mini-info panel.
Surface Temperature can be viewed and edited using the following units:
- Kelvin (K) is the SI base unit for temperature
- Degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
- Degrees Celsius (°C)
Conversions between these three units are as follows:
°C = K - 273
°F = (9/5)°C + 32
