Luna (more commonly called The Moon) is the only natural satellite of Terra and the first celestial visited by humanity during the First Space Age. It primarily serves as a mining outpost, colonization outpost, and fuel stop for outbound ships.
First Space Age
During the first space age, which lasted from 1957 CE to 2018 CE, The United States of America landed Apollo 11 on Luna in 1969, making it the first successful landing on Luna. After Apollo 11, NASA, the US Space Agency, launched an attempt to gain even more science from Luna. 30 more Apollo Mission were sent to Luna between 1969 and 2010, with 27 being completely successful. After the last Apollo mission on January 17th, 2010, NASA sent up the Eagle Space Station to orbit Luna and the Armstrong Lunar Base to gain even more science from Luna's surface.
In 2020, The United Nations Space Administration and the governments of the world passed the Luna Accord, authorizing the colonization of Luna.
After this, millions of people from Central America, Southeast Asia, Iberia, and France flooded to equatorial spaceports in Florida, Borneo, and Africa to begin their new lives on or in orbit of Luna. The population quickly began to rise as settlers began to reach Luna and helped construct orbital habitats, spaceports, helium mines, and other settlements all over Luna's surface. In 2042, The International Ministry of Universal Sciences purchased land on Luna and began construction of the Sagan Research Station in a polar orbit of Luna in order to research Artificial Gravity and Fusion Power in a special environment.
Today, Luna is a thriving world. It is a haven of helium mining and scientific research. Luna is also home to the largest spaceport in the solar system outside Earth.
