NEW AGE OF DISCOVERY

YEAR: 2074

40 SHIPS led by Hanif Amen and his expedition group launched for Constellation of Orion  and with the new age of discovery was unleashed.

For better or worse anything that could fly through space was used to move people away from the overcrowded Earth for an opportunity at a new life on a distant planet.

what a romantic notion. The reality was until technology caught up many people were either killed in transit or never heard from again. that didn’t stop them from going. The Earth was in the grips of a major transition from a warring territorial nation grabbing to a global society. People were better off taking their chances in outer space.

For now hope is at its zenith as the follow up to the highly successful Vega Colony carries humans into the void once again quenching if only for a fleeting moment the thirst of the insatiable quest for knowledge.

SEE WHERE THIS IS LEADING?

OORT 96

In the year 1996 the remains of a fractured comet fell to the earth.  The comet originated in the Oort Cloud. The elements found in the fragment consisted of superheavy elements of relatively long-lived nuclei stability. Loading up certain superheavy atoms with lots of extra neutrons could confer stability by preventing the proton-rich nuclei from deforming. Atoms beyond this limit may exist but only as strange creatures capable of summoning electrons from empty space expected to have a magically stable number of neutrons at 184.

Positively charged protons repel each other, so the more you pack into a nucleus, the less stable it tends to be. Uranium, with an atomic number of 92, is the last element stable enough to occur naturally on Earth. Every element beyond it has a nucleus that falls apart quickly, and their half-lives—the time it takes for half of the material to decay—can be minutes, seconds, or even split seconds.

Heavier, unstable elements exist everywhere in the universe, like inside dense neutron stars have been predicted to have the potential to be more durable. “184” the magic number showed that electrons in elements beyond 184 would have to move faster than the speed of light,

More recent calculations have since overturned that limit. Until then science treated the nucleus as a single point. Allow it to be a ball of particles, and the elements can keep going until about 184. Then all hell breaks loose. Traveling faster than the speed of light.

But some claims of superheavy stability have already fallen apart. Making each new element of superheavies requires beams of atoms that are themselves radioactive.  But Oort 96 solves all those problems. The reason: It remains stable even past the speed of light and far beyond.

In 2035 OORT 96 is discovered inside comets orbiting in the Oort Cloud. Then came the shocker. The comets originated in the Orion Star System near the star Alniham.  And there just happens to be a wormhole that takes you right there. Coincidence well that’s totally another story.

AMONG THE CREW ARE THE AMEN FAMILY. HANIF AMEN THE TRILLIONAIRE INDUSTRALIST IS THE FOUNDER OF THE EXPEDITION AND HAS INVESTED MUCH OF HIS OWN MONEY TO GET THE MISSION OFF THE GROUND.

HIS WIFE MAURA IS A RENOWN SCIENTIST AND HIS FEISTY 12 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER MAGARET “MAGGIE” IS A CHILD PRODIGY WITH A WORLD FOLLOWING. THIS MAKES THEM THE MOST POPULAR FAMILY ON EARTH AND ALL BUT INSURES THE LAUNCH OF THEIR MISSION.

AS ALWAYS THE MISSION SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO TAKE PLACE. BUT THEN THERE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN A STORY TO TELL.
