Smaller vehicles, like spacefighters and exo-armors, also use ion thrusters, where an intense electrical arc ionizes and expels reaction mass at high speed to produce acceleration. Frantically, you mektom the maneuvering sticks, struggling with the verniers and apogee thrusters in a desperate attempt to correct your flight vector.

Information is very limited at this time since this program is being rather rushed. The Jovian Chronicles recount the stories of one possible future, a time in which Mankind has expanded and settled the solar system, chronicled as far as terraforming Venus and Mars. When held by a specially designed hand, a direct current from the exo-armor’s main fusion reactor is transmitted to the ejector and transforms the gas into a giant plasma flame.

Gravity is simulated by rotation along the axis of the cylinder. O’Neil colonies have the same number of ground panels alternating with clear panels to let the sunlight inside using giant reflectors to direct it; Gray Vivariums use a special “sunline” running the axis of the cylinder for light, since the whole station is thickly covered by rocks for protection against radiation and meteors.
