Spacecraft


The development of the Newton Drive in 2067 obviated the need for spacecraft to carry the large amounts of reaction mass required for rapid interplanetary
travel, and touched off a flurry of missions to the Moon, Mars, asteroids and the Jovian satellites. By 2130, more than 60 colonies had been established, either spacegoing
or on a planetary surface.

The development of the superluminal Transition Drive in 2132 accelerated expansion, leading to the colonization of nearby star systems and attracting the attention of the Avakhith.



Henry Newton's second test vehicle, the first successful reactionless-drive spacecraft, orbiting the planet Mars on its maiden flight in 2067.
