Chapter Eleven
« on: April 22, 2012, 01:01:28 PM »
6th January 2043 Sol, Retooling for Bridge class completed at A. Leslie & Co. on Earth and the first Bridge ships is laid down at once

6th January 2043 Sol On Earth a team led by Mava Zelinger has completed research into SAAB Type 0.8 Commercial Ion Engine, now we will be able to build faster commercial ships.

21st January 2043 a new Jump Point found in the Ross 128 System

21st February 2043 Sol A team on Earth led by Akira Kawasaki has completed research into Beam Fire Control Range 32,000 km, there will not be more research into the beam range for some time, mostly because the Gaus Guns short range. There is a growing concern that we need a better weapon for both offense and defence the laser is probably the weapon of choice but so far the empire haven’t stated the research effort, the Emperor thinks we will have a working laser system  within the next 5-10 years.

21st February 2043 Sol Slipway added to Portsmouth Naval Shipyard on Earth

21st March 2043 Today our first gate builder, Bridge (Bridge class) has been built on Earth and are sent to the Ross system jump point to start building our first jump gate

30th March 2043 Sol Jump Gate Construction underway at Ross 128 Jump Point Jump Point

7th April 2043 Ross 128 A new Jump Point found in the Ross 128 System

29th April 2043  An exploration of a jump point in the Ross 128 system has revealed the new system of Gliese 563.2, we are about 25.72 LY from Sol system. It’s a binary system, the A star is alone with the B star having several places for a colony, but they will need either infrastructures or a lot of works from terraformers, it has 2 rocky planets and 6 gas planets and some 115 moons. But its also a long way from the wormhole, some 10000 M km out from its A star, probably not a good choice.

7th May 2043  An exploration of a jump point in the Ross 128 system has revealed the new system of Wolf 358, a second binary system some 22.5 LY from Earth, the real estate are alot better than Gliese 563.2, we will need to dispatch a ship here to search for minerals.

7th July 2043 Sol Today on Earth the Bofors weapon group a announces the first step into a working laser weapons system, the private funded research have been led by Mason Bird has completed research into 10cm Laser Focal Size

7th July 2043 12:26:41 Sol A team on Earth led by Katherine Rice has completed research into Turret Tracking Speed (10% Gear) 2000 km/s, this will probably be a prioritized project, so far the turrets are able to cope with target practises, but the new Ion engine will probably make the missiles and other targets a lot faster than we can track, but so far the admiralty sees no quick solution to this problem, they have gone to the emperor and asked for a new building program of research labs but the Emperor said no.
