Viscosity 3 is a space probe launched by PAC on May 14th, 1971, to study the outer planets. Part of the Viscosity program, It was the first and only probe of it's class cleared for exploration. During it's flybys, Viscosity 3 was able to provide scientists and AISC members with it's stunning photos of the two outer planets. It is the first and only spacecraft to have visited either of the ice giants. Due to it's unique nature and positioning, Viscosity 3 has been re-purposed as a deep space explorer and now aims to leave the Tendor System for further study.
