Orbital 2100 is a science fiction setting for Cepheus Engine and other Classic 2D6 SF RPGs. It has realistic (TL 9) feel that is set within our own solar system. The Earth is locked in a Cold War... More > with the people of Luna. Both face off, 400,000 km apart, threatening mutual annihilation whilst they compete to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Older colonies such as Mars and Mercury are independent and caught up in this struggle for solar system supremacy. Spacecraft use nuclear thermal rockets and create gravity by spinning pods or centrifuges, this is spaceflight as envisaged today! In keeping with the near-future and hard-science fiction themes, role-playing campaigns focus on real people doing real jobs. The game has rules, technology and advice to allow scenarios based around deep space haulage, asteroid mining, salvage, rescue and exploration. Requires the use of the Cepheus Engine or a 2D6 SF rules-set. Visit Zozer Games at, or on facebook.< Less

Introduction to Planetary Science for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $9.99
A planet is a celestial body that: #1) is in orbit around the Sun, #2) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly...

This definition is under discussion, particularly by members of the planetary science community, and it may yet be further refined.< Less

When you outgrow something you either make it larger or... More > you replace it. Tom's plan is not just ambitious, it is almost impossible. He want to build a giant space station capable of rotating to provide its 1,000 or more inhabitants with near Earth-like gravity and incredible surroundings. Two problems are in his way: money and getting all the materials up there. When even his own government appears to condemn his efforts Tom must turn to an alternate source for his building materials—mining what he needs from asteroids. But now he requires a way to transport raw materials to Earth and finished goods into orbit. The solution has never been tried except in science fiction. He decides to build a space elevator.
