It is the middle of the 21st century.  Mankind's last best hope lies in the development of macrolife, mobile, self-reproducing space habitats.

A thousand years later, and inevitably conflict has arisen between macrolife and natural planets.

A hundred billion years have passed, and macrolife faces its ultimate challenge - the death of the universe.




Science Fiction on a grand and epic scale.

A Bird's-Eye View of Erebus
This false-color view combines frames taken by the panoramic camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on the rover's 652 through 663 Martian days, or sols (Nov. 23 to Dec. 5, 2005), at the edge of Erebus Crater. The mosaic is presented as a vertical projection. This type of projection provides a true-to-scale overhead view of the rover deck and nearby surrounding terrain. The view here shows outcrop rocks, sand dunes, and other features out to a distance of about 25 meters (82 feet) from the rover. Opportunity examined targets on the outcrop called "Rimrock" in front of the rover, testing the mobility and operation of Opportunity's robotic arm. The view shows examples of the dunes and ripples that Opportunity has been crossing as the rover drives on the Meridiani plains.
