The United Nations Space Administration, sometimes called the The Space Administration, is the main Space Agency for all of humanity. It mainly operates on Terra, with most of its spaceports being located there.
The United Nations Space Administration was formed in early 2014 as a collaboration between NASA, Roscosmos, the ESA, JAXA, and the CNSA, the national space programs of the United States, Russia, the European Union, Japan, and the People's Republic of China. The newly-formed UNSA was put under control of the United Nations and was immediately tasked with putting humans on Mars by 2020. This was called the Ares Proclamation, and served as a rallying call for humanity to finally reach out and explore the universe.
To the Stars
On November 9th, 2018 CE, Ares 1, created by the UNSA, landed the first humans on Mars. This tremendous achievement was followed up by more complex exploration of Mars and the return of human exploration of Luna in 2020.
On July 20th, 2020 CE, The UNSA was tasked with the colonization of Luna with the passing of the Luna Accord. During this time, most of the UNSA's resources were used to facilitate the Lunar Colonization, which caused most exploration of Mars to stop and not continue for a decade.
By 2030, the UNSA had grown enough and obtained enough funding to be able to resume human exploration of Mars and unmanned exploration of the Sol System. By this time, the population of Luna and the colonies on it reached a population of almost 500 million and were almost self-sustaining. The second wave of manned exploration of Mars lasted until 2050 when the Ares Concordat was signed, given the UNSA the task of Terraforming Mars
A New World
With the new task of colonizing Mars ahead of it, the UNSA gained much more resources and assets to be used to take on Mars. In December of 2051, the UNSA's budget is increased by 120% changing from $500 million to $600 million in a single year. This new funding allowed the UNSA to continue and ramp up the terraforming and colonization process of Mars, which continues to this day.
As of 2093 CE, the United Nation Space Administration, now a subsidiary of the Terra Pact, is continuing the terraforming of Mars along with the colonization of its moons, Phobos and Deimos. It is also beginning manned exploration of Ceres and is experimenting with the colonization and mining of Ceres. Outside of exploration, The UNSA is also beginning to use Fusion Power as a possible means of propulsion that could speed spacecraft up to approximately 1% the speed of light (about 3,000 meters per second) which could take astronauts to the outer planets in 6 years.
The UNSA operates multiple spaceports all over Terra and is experimenting with a possible spaceport on Luna.
