Information for those who want to understand what is happening here, to play a little game events, and not stupidly grind in the scenery of a certain abstract Sci-Fi

Chapter 1. Dawn of mankind

Curiosity and greed have opened the cosmos to humanity. When a man looked into the night sky, curiosity aroused dreams of space, and greed prompted to invest in technology, to reach the stars.

Disposable rocket, probably, would never be used for space travel, if the same rocket were not used for war. Reusable rockets and space shuttles only became operational, when global war ceased to threaten all of humanity, and governments began to demand greater results with less investment. The first full-fledged spaceship made space travel feasible for corporations and space became available to all.

«One giant leap for mankind» was complicated by another nuance: the person was not adapted to, to be in space constantly. Journey to Earth’s satellite was a short tour; life in space — that’s another thing, and life in space, regardless of the Earth, is an order of magnitude more important. Having access to space and the prospects for incredible profits, there was an urgent need for the ability to live in space, without relying on expensive resources, raised from the earth, — to really live outside the earth.

Thanks to the discovery of gravity pit technology, which allowed to go out into space cheaply and the development of methods and means for extraterrestrial existence, humanity could truly become a cosmic species. Soon, many planets and satellites in the solar system were colonized, and the era of space exploration began.

Chapter 2. Age of Shocks

Historians are still debating whether space exploration was the catalyst for the onset of the Age of Shocks or was it just a coincidence. Quite possible, what are those technologies, which allowed to master space provoked the onset of the Age of Shocks.

Nevertheless, the Age of Shocks has become a test for all of humanity, test, which called into question the survival of humanity as a species.

Humanity has almost depleted resources on Earth. There were no more resources, that could be dug out of the ground, and resource recycling is no longer a fashion whim, but became a necessity. Climate change from our wasteful use of limited resources has hit civilization. Many countries have disappeared under the ocean, state borders have changed, and big cities were destroyed not only by extreme weather, but also the winds of war.

When humanity struggled to restore imbalance in the ecosystem, it became obvious, that wasteful industry must either be completely eliminated or taken out of the Earth. A greener economy was emerging on Earth, which was supported by space expansion. Ultimately, the crisis ended and the Age of Shocks was passed. But the price was incredibly high. Nevertheless, all this further pushed mankind to space expansion.

Chapter 3. Beyond the earth, beyond human

First, a complete understanding of, how is the human genome, and then science began to work miracles. Diabetes was completely eradicated, crayfish, AIDS and cardiovascular disease, then people learned to live longer. At the same time, with age, they did not become weaker and did not lose health.

Genetic modifications made mankind adapted to living in many other worlds, besides earthly. In this regard, the concept «race» found a new meaning. Before that, how a person learned to change his genome, the concept «race» rather denoted differences between certain ethnic groups, but these differences have erased and lost their meaning, when the truly new races of Homo sapiens appeared. This was due to the need to adapt to living conditions on new planets.

New worlds were so different from each other, that people had to significantly change their genome, wherein, people tried to maintain their human appearance.

So representatives of homo sapiens, born on the moon, grew more than two meters in height and had an extremely asthenic physique. Such changes in the genome were caused by the need to preserve the human phenotype and at the same time have a metabolism suitable for lunar gravity. On the other hand, if the lunar was born on Earth, he would be short, stocky and muscular.

A completely new understanding of, what are the human races. Residents of the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn could easily travel between each other’s worlds, So lived in worlds with approximately the same gravity, but only for a short time could visit Earth and Mars. Martians could freely visit any worlds and only on Earth experienced some difficulties, earthlings traveled freely across all human worlds, but under low gravity their muscles rapidly degraded, and therefore they had to devote a lot of time to physical exercises.

A special situation in the colonies, created in the asteroid belt. These colonies initially did not have any sources of gravity other than artificially created, but because there it became possible to recreate absolutely any conditions for all races.

Pretty soon, all new human races became different branches of the homo sapiens family tree, while the representative of each race continued to consider himself human. So once and for all the racial issue was resolved, when a race began to mean only a set of genetic changes necessary for survival and nothing more.
