Technology

  • Uranium/Plutonium Fission is outlawed by international law.
  • Even the production of enriched uranium or plutonium is illegal
  • Thermonuclear fusion weapons have been designed in theory, but never developed. As they would require atomic fission triggering mechanisms, their use is also illegal.
  • Thorium reactors are the most common industrial powersource, though solar, hydro, and even some fossil fuels are still in use.
  • Reactors can be made small enough to be used in individual buildings or large vehicles.
  • Liquid oxygen and solid fuels are used for everyday surface to orbit launches, supplemented by high altitude scramjets.
  • Spacecraft generally utilize thorium reaction rockers, electric ion drives, as well as some solar sails. More exotic drive systems are in experimental development.
