The details of the Stanton system's Aaron Halo asteroid belt have been a mystery for a long time, but during the last couple of years more information about its features have steadily been revealed by several explorers who have pushed beyond to learn and bring back new data about it.

My goal for this survey expedition was to comprehensively determine the characteristics of the asteroid belt from a general scientific perspective - including to verify if the asteroid belt structure is the same across different game servers, determine if its density differs around the circumference of the star, and most importantly to measure and gather details on its size, shape and density. 

The main outcome of the survey can be summarized in this chart, which exhibit the precise width and asteroid density of the 10 bands. 
Read on to learn about the expedition details and findings.

Welcome to Hurston!

Hurston is a hot, arid planet that orbits closest to the star in the Stanton system. It is home to its namesake, Hurston Dynamics, an aristocratic family-run weapons manufacturer which since their purchase of the planet in 2865 has bled it dry. Unrestricted industry and mining, especially of antimatter precursor, have heavily polluted the atmosphere of the planet since the company took possession. The planet's ecosphere has been largely destroyed in just 50 years. Almost all indigenous life has been killed by the mining and manufacturing processes performed here.

This is a constantly updated list that keeps track of changes implemented over time. We ask that folks let us know when they find new issues or limitations that are not listed, so we can revise the list(s) as necessary.

Welcome to microTech!

The fourth and farthest planet from the sun in the Stanton system, microTech is the home of microTech corporation, a manufacturer of a variety of electronics, digital displays, software, and computers, including the mobiGlas wearable computer.

Located at the outer edge of the system's habitable zone, microTech is a terraformed planet with breathable air. However, due to an error during the terraforming process cloud production became unusually dense, resulting in a mostly frozen surface, with temperatures dropping below -100 °C. Most of microTech is covered in mountains and ice sheets and subject to strong blizzards and ice storms, but multiple temperate tundra zones exist in areas associated with deep geothermal activity. For those willing to face the elements, microTech offers a vast world to explore!
