History

The U.C was founded on the 8 July 2018 after the U.N. Article 99 was signed by the governments of the world. This article gave the U.N. extraordinary powers and influence that eventually resulted in the U.N. to become the government for the entire Human race.

The U.C. sent it first cargo into space on 18 March 2019 into low Earth orbit at 18:34 PM ( EDT).

On 12, March 2026, the U.C. launched a manned mission to Mars making history. Following the success of the mission to Mars, the U.N. increased the U.C.'s annual budget to allow for more missions to Mars and beyond.

By 2038, the U.C. started operating asteroid mining facilities in the Asteroid Belt. The materials mined helped supply materials to build and colonize other planets.

By the late 2050s, a permanent colony was formed on Mars with a population of 3 million humans and on the Moon with a population of 2.5 million. Plans to colonize Venus was drafted but the U.C. decided to focus its resources on colonizing other planets beyond the Solar System.

The U.C. celebrates 50 years of service at the U.C headquarters on Planet Earth.

On 8th July 2068, the U.C. celebrated 50 years of service to the United Nations Earth Government. It was also the year that a colony was formed above the clouds of Venus.

By 2078, the U.C. began testing of an interstellar spacecraft, The Horizon, using a prototype warp drive. The test flight was a sucess and paved the way for the U.C. to begin colonising other solar systems.

On 2082, the U.C. launched it's first ever manned mission to Tratius, a exoplanet located on the Heallo Centauri system, discovering a vast land of vegetation, oceans, a breathable atmosphere and gravity similar to that of Earth.

It was finally announced on October 22 2091 that the U.C. had made contact with a extraterrestrial civilisation, the Warsari they were called. The United Nations and the Warsari Kindgom remains strong allies to this very day.
