Gaia is a super earth of 14,892km in diameter that is in the system Albis 84-B that once it is located outside the Arm of the Swan about 40,239 light years from the solar system. Gaia is the third planet in the distance of the mother star Albis and is located about 180 billion kilometers from it. It is characterized by having large tracts of land that 59% of the surface is land divided into 3 large continents with large and small islands around them. The characteristics of the planet made it ideal for colonization by the UNSC in the year 2390, was primarily thought of a Gaia as a supplier of products and raw materials (like other external colonies ) for the most internal colonies but this Decision at the end was rejected and dealt with a planet as a military bastion as well as scope, although Gaia being an external colony was not as reinforced and developed as the planet mentioned above. Finally the Covenant encountered Gaia and after a great battle the planet ended up being crystallized.
It is the planet that gave way to projects like the Spartan G and a military program where they were trained to a large extent ODST as well as marines. The conditions of the planet gave way to the great manufacture of military equipment as well as the battle ships for the UNSC due to the great presence of metals like Iron, Aluminum, Copper, Tin, Titanium and Tugsteno, the latter are of great importance for the UNSC Since they are very tough and hard, ideal for armor.
Like Earth, it formed 3300 million years ago from the gravitational collapse of a molecular cloud because of a relatively close supernova that was about 890 light years old, this star that died was about 3 times the size of the star. Sun with 5 solar masses. The gravitational collapse of the cloud caused a center of gravity to form from the bulge of mass that gave rise to Albis in the form of a protostar, after which the molecular cloud was flattened in the shape of a disk around the protostand, and small centers were periodically formed Of mass that provoked the formation of rocks that later formed to Gaia along with 3 other rocky planets, but far from the star formed 2 gaseous planets that are 2 times larger than Jupiter.
After some millions of years later, life appeared in small unicellular organisms, such as those on earth. After a long period of time, life evolved to have abundant living beings such as mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, as well as plant life.
Near about 1 million years ago an asteroid of about 100m in diameter fell in the North Sea that provoked besides the deepest point of the planet (the north grave with its 7.8 km of depth) a great sunami, an immense amount of water Evaporated and debris that rose to the atmosphere. This set of factors caused a damage to the life of the planet, extinguished a great amount of animal and vegetable species but with the passage of time the planet returned to its normal state.
Discovery and colonizationEditar
One night on December 28, 2290, a satellite telescope on the planet Eridanus II found a planet that appeared to have conditions similar to that of a habitable planet. After a series of investigations, astronomers determined that it was a super-terrain on the Swan to more than 30,400 light-years.
The UNSC at that time was looking for planets to colonize but Gaia was too far from the earth and the other colonies that were in those moments so the UNSC left to Gaia for a future and they were dedicated to colonize other planets that were closer to Improve the technology of their ships to travel further. Finally in 2388 the UNSC commanded a fleet of ships of diverse planets near Gaia that arrived the 9 of May of 2390, a century after its discovery.
Pandemic of 47Editar
During the year 2447 Gaia was still a planet with many places without research, so the UNSC was determined to explore the entire surface of Gaia, this is how in 2446 the last explorations begin. Among these unexplored lands were immense jungles with thousands of species not cataloged by biology. Expeditions had very good standards of hygiene and protection to avoid diseases from insects such as mosquitoes, larvae, anything that could represent a danger to the health of expidicionarios but unfortunately a failure of protection in the Incursion Unit No 4 provoked the Infection of an individual, although there were areas of disinfection and scanning to detect if someone was infected, somehow the infected was never detected.
After the expedition and return of the soldiers to their cities an outbreak of an unknown and very strange virus in the Ezia continent began. At first this virus does not generate any detectable symptom as it enters into complete lethargy hidden in white blood cells and then begins to reproduce through a few cells. Once thousands of viruses are generated these enter the cells they find in their path but do not start their reproduction until thousands of infected cells. Once they are thousands infected, they explode suddenly releasing millions of viruses, starting a massive and sudden attack on the system of the organism to kill it in a matter of a day or two.
The rate of contagion was incredibly fast because the means of infection once mutated the virus was through the air, the epidemic that began affecting a few hundred people quickly infected thousands of people. At this point he had already noticed the presence of the virus and was named as the "Virus Shade" because of its dark appearance under a microscope.
The virus was completely new and had very rare characteristics so there was no cure for it, after a month had already registered 100 thousand infected and 140 thousand dead, the UNSC took a desperate measure of absolute quarantine prohibiting the exit of any Person of the cities and of the continent, and conclusively were closed all the trips of Gaia to Uranus and Point and inversely. No one could go out or enter Exia.
In 2449 the efforts of scientists were enough to develop a vaccine against the virus, most people were vaccinated and the virus was no longer effective, eventually all people infected before the vaccine died and started with a large Densinfection of the quarantined area to eliminate any traces of Virus Shade in cities. By 2452 all the people returned to their original cities and the Epidemic of 47 remained as the first catastrophe in Gaia that left about 6 million dead
Great blackout of 63Editar
Beginning of the Human-Covenant WarEditar
Battle of GaiaEditar
End of the Human-Covenant WarEditar
Gaia is connected gravitationally with 2 satellites, Ponto and Uranus (not to be confused with the planet of the solar system) that exert a tide in the oceans of Gaia. As happens with the earth, it is thought that the gravitational interaction with these two bodies propitiated the conditions that gave rise to the emergence and development of life.
It is one of Gaia's 2 natural satellites. With a diameter of 4879 km and near 29.6 lunar masses. It is at a distance of 297 390 km away from Gaia so in combination of factors such as its size and remoteness make since Gaia looks very large and defined, the aspect ratio compared with the earth's moon is 1.7 times , Bone is 1.7 times larger than the moon seen from the earth. It is also one of the largest natural satellites of the Alvis System only behind Uranus and 5 satellites of the gaseous planets. Its surface is whitish with a darker area, has many geographical features such as craters and many mountain systems, also has some plains but are not very extensive and has confirmed the existence of frozen water underground at the poles.
It is composed mainly of silicates and a great variety of metals as also happens in Gaia and Uranus, the discovery of the fact of abundant metals in the 3 stars gave confirmation to the Great Bombardment Theory of the Gaian System.
Its orbital period around Gaia is of 25.09d and its rotation is of 47.4 hrs what makes that it can be observed to him completely unlike the Moon of the Earth that has a synchronous rotation that makes that only a face can be appreciated.
A few decades after the beginning of the Gaia colonization, it was visited and investigated in the Project of Exploration of Ponto and Uranus in which it was planned to explore them as well as to learn of them and to see if it was possible to construct some structure, or anything of utility. This is how in 2400 2 ships visit Ponto and deploy large bases of investigation with numerous scientists who were dedicated to study the geological composition and later other things like the existence of a light magnetosphere that protected it slightly of the radiation of Albis, and Its gravity that is of approximately 6.86 m / s² which allowed that it did not feel a discomfort so great as in places with very small gravity. With the passage of time it was confirmed the existence of a great amount of metals in its surface reason why Ponto acquired a great interest for the UNSC so began to develop a mining complex in Ponto, first began with the creation of bases or Small cities where all the workers would be established, then began with the excavation and creation of mines, in the end they created space ports and a great network of transports that took raw materials of Gaia to maintain the multiple mining complexes.
By 2410 there were a large number of mining complexes, about 100 and each with their respective cities and ports. Over time and advanced technology these cities were covered by domes that protected the entire city from radiation and equipped with large complexes of greenhouses that provided oxygen and food so that now cities actually became cities with buildings , Schools, malls etc. and people could walk freely without suits. Ponto thus became practically a new inhabited planet with about 2 million established inhabitants and 1.2 million tourists. By the time of the Covenant invasion, Ponto had a total of 21 million established inhabitants and 4 million tourists scattered among 121 cities.
Uranus is the second natural satellite of Gaia. With a diameter of 7,237 km, a mass of 0.6 earth and a gravity of 7.89 m / s². It is located at a distance of Gaia of 387 920 km, so you can appreciate Gaia in a spectacular way since its distance and size make it look 2.7 times larger than the Moon from Earth. It has a light magnetosphere that protects it from the radiation of Albis, in addition has a small atmosphere composed of 86% Nitrogen, 13% Oxygen and the rest is divided in other gases, this atmosphere with time was modified by the UNSC to have more Presence of Oxygen and as a result of Industrial activity CO2 was added.
In Gaia to Uranus one has much love to him in the culture, because its great beauty make of him an icon in all sides, from art to literature, even Ponto is appreciated in the culture since both are seen like symbol of brotherhood since in the Greek mythology Uranus and Ponto are the sons of Gaia so this reference is often used in the population "We are like Uranus and Pontus".
Its surface looks similar to that of Ponto, whitish with some darker areas with many craters and geographic accidents. Like Ponto, it was objective of the Project of Exploration of Uranus and Ponto, reason why also was constructed bases of investigation in its surface, the investigations showed that Uranus could be terraformed, only needed to tune the atmosphere and to introduce something of Hydrogen to stimulate The formation of water and therefore oceans, but Gaia was not advanced enough and had no resources to carry this project so it followed the same fate as Ponto, mining complexes with domed cities and equipped with greenhouses to transform CO2 ( Produced by humans) in oxygen. (Due to the presence of Oxygen in Uranus greenhouses were not needed but there was no vegetation to convert the CO2 back into Oxygen).
Unlike Ponto, the living conditions of Uranus are more similar to those of Gaia, since Uranus has a higher gravity which allows people to feel more comfortable than in their brother Ponto. So it was more attractive to tourists.
The cities of Uranus are large and developed futuristic metropolis, with large buildings and artificial lakes, like Ponto, the young people of Gaia were very attracted to travel to these cities, in 2500 the popularity of Uranus increased due to the great activity Youth in bars, clubs, parties, etc. By the time of the Covenant invasion there were 30 million established people and 7 million tourists (mostly young people).
