THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF PROGRESS IN TRANSPORATION AND SCIENCE HAS LED HUMANS TO THE MOON AND BEYOND. THE YEAR IS 2096 AND THE MOON HAS AN ILLUMINATED SPECK ON ITS SKIN. THIS IS NOT A CRATER OR A BLEMISH BUT A LIVING AND BREATHING BASE FULL OF EAGER RESEARCHERS AND TOURISTS WORKING TOGETHER TO FURTHER THE MIGRATION OF HUMANS TO OTHER WORLDS IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM.

THE BASE OF THIS COMMUNITY BEGAN IN THE EARLY 2020’S WHEN EARTHLINGS FOUND IT NECESSARY TO BEGIN MINING ON THE MOON AND EXTRACT VALUABLE MATERIALS SUCH AS HELIUM 3 AND VARIOUS METALS. THIS EXTRACTION WAS ONLY POSSIBLE BY USE OF DRILLING DRONES FOR THEIR EASY ASSEMBLY AND STRENGTH.

AS HUMANS HAVE LEARNED FROM THE PAST, MINING COMMUNITIES EXPANDED IN GROWTH BUT THEN TURNED INTO GHOSTTOWNS IN THE 20TH CENTURY. A NEW PLAN WAS BROUGHT OUT TO CHANGE THIS PERCEPTION OF THE MINING IDEOLOGY. THE MOON IS WHERE THIS NEW SUCCESS OF A FAILED SYSTEM NOW FUNCTIONS AND THRIVES.

THE JANUS* TRINITY STATION SERVES AS A WAYSTATION TO THOSE IN SEARCH OF MIGRATING TO THE OTHER WORLDS IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM. AFTER THE BASE USED ITS RESOURCES UP AND LEFT A MONUMENTAL PIT, IT RECATEGORIZED ITSELF AND TURNED TO TOURISM AND RESEARCH AS A SUITABLE ECONOMY FOR THE BASE. ITS THREE COLOSSAL ARMS STRETCH OUT INTO THE LUNAR REGOLITH AND CATEGORIZES DIVIDING ITSELF INTO ZONES OF RESEARCH, RESIDENCE AND ACCLIMATION. THE RESEARCH ZONE SERVES AS A SHORT TERM DESTINATION FOR INTERNATIONAL SCIENTISTS FROM EARTH TO WORK FOR ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY, MEDICINE AND SCIENCES. THE SMALLER OF THE TWO ZONES SERVES AS TEMPORARY LIVING MODULES FOR THE FAMILIES OF THE RESEARCHES WORKING AND EMPLOYEES OF THE BASE. THE ACCLIMATIONS CENTER IS THE LARGEST ZONE TO ACCOMMODATE FOR THE LARGE AMOUNT OF MIGRATORS TO THE OTHER WORLDS. THIS ZONE GIVES PEOPLE THE EXPERIENCES NEEDED TO ADJUST THEMSELVES TO NEW ENVIRONMENTS NOT SEEN ANYWHERE ON EARTH. FINALLY, THE THREE ZONES ARE CONNECTED THROUGH NODES THAT SERVE AS CULTIVATION ZONES TO PROVIDE CONSUMABLE RESOURCES FOR THE NEW COLONY.
SINCE THE DAWN OF MAN, HUMANS HAVE ALWAYS LOOKED TOWARDS THE HEAVENS TO FIND THE ANSWERS. THIS MOONTOPIA WOULD SERVE AS A STEPPING STONE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS AND THEIR INQUIRIES OF WHAT IS REALLY OUT THERE.

(*)   JANUS REPRESENTS THE GOD BEGINNINGS AND PASSAGE. HE LOOKS TOWARDS THE FUTURE AND THE PAST MUCH LIKE HOW OUR BASE LOOKS BACK AT EARTH AND TOWARDS NEW HORIZONS.
