Did you know: Europa Station: Jupiter's moon was the perfect place for humanity to build its first space colony outside Earth's own langrage points. On the surface, now reside many interconnected man-made islands that have become part vacation spot, part manufacturing. Over 57% of Earth's silicate is mined on Europa. The atmosphere was easily adjusted to add increased warmth to the surface, melting the glaciers and forming an ocean that covers a majority of the planet. In orbit, the United Earth Government built their first interstellar space platform for launching ships into other parts of the galaxy. It pretends to be a romantic get-a-way with its luxury hotels, but in reality is more like a tourist trap with its hawkers, vendors and gambling.
