In 2030 a massive project were kicked-off in order to colonize new planets.
The name of the project was International Space Program.
A lot of planets had been probed looking for the best candidate of the first mankind settlement in the space.
At the end Mars won and a bunch of settlers were chosen to colonize it.
The main reason for the colonization of space was the research and the harvesting of an important resource missing on Earth: “Whatsoever” (on periodic element table: WH)
What you could achieve using the “Whatsoever” was limitless, so a lot of Companies invested on the International Space Program.
The settlers were sent on Mars in 2032 and an interspace link granted the quick send of designs, prototypes useful to build objects on Mars.
The name of this link was: New Universal Gate for Extraterrestrial Transport or N.U.G.E.T for short.
