After 6 years of launching modular pieces of the station into orbit, the Trinity 2 Space Station is completed. The project started in 1993 as a replacement for the Trinity 1 project which had become obsolete. Construction on the station began in August of 1998. The facility is powered by solar panels covering the exterior. The purpose of the station is scientific. The crew includes a 3 man security team, 6 man medical team, and a 2 man fire crew. Those are included in the total crew size of 100 people.

Question for the government of New Kingman:

Although Trinity 2 was mainly a New Kingman-ian project, will the crew of the space station be of international origin. The government of Mosstania, somewhat stuck with its space program, has been seeking an oppurtunity for Mosstanians to reach space, and would be interested to send mosstanauts trained in Mosstanian facilities to serve aboard Trinity 2's crew. Are there any spots open which we could fill with mosstanauts?

Yes. The crew on there now is a preliminary crew of 16. The rest will be sent up soon. We have 45 slots open for foreign astronauts.

The nation of Teatroia, small though we are would also be interested in sending a few people to your station to pioneer our space program. We have none as yet, but would definitely like to begin one. We would appeal to you to help us start such a program. Thanks!

We of CircleSoft would also like to expand our space program by sending a few of our experianced people to your station for scientific and technological purposes.
