It was a bad week for private spaceflight and some critics declared that people shouldn’t be dying for it. Well… they’re wrong. And here’s why.
This week, the NOVA sets sail. And our pal Dutch Warner is second chair on the Kim Muyan. But, this is a new fleet and not everything always runs smoothly.
We’ve been mentioning shippers since the beginning. But, with this supplemental, we’ll be explaining some of the terms they use. Also, we’ll explain how people navigate in deep space. These things will be important for future episodes when we get deep into how the former colonies and Earth wage war against one another.
How do the colonies communicate with one another? In this supplemental, we discuss not only how someone might contact their neighbor but someone in the next city. Or on another planet. And we discuss an emergency system that as developed to help shippers stranded in the depths of space.
The revolution is coming. Because people are tired of what Earth keeps doing to them. This week, we explain what that is. And how the colonists of the star cluster react to interference from so far away.
