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!

The Aaron Halo is an asteroid belt within the Stanton system, located between the orbits of Crusader and ArcCorp, that is considered one of the most valuable mining areas in Stanton. More and more details have been revealed about the Aaron Halo during the last one and a half year. We have gone from mostly knowing the positions of the inner and outer borders of the halo along a couple of routes, to learning more about its structure and that it is made up of separate bands.

Now, more details than ever before have been unveiled about the Aaron Halo.
