Yurka's space program!

08-11-2003, 21:50
After years of keeping Yurka's space program top secret it is now beggining preparations to launch its many defense sattelites!!APz6L0m13GoO8jtrhWRhGctjebWyPRS9L0j0GUlQP1e9gQu1Zvj*J*n8qgVQCaZLW32ms3xpaW4tFyltH4 1KNaKcMVptrEK*b6A8A/tc2_v14.jpg?dc=4675446347530230543

Judging on how well thise goes Yurka can then begin launch for its space lab.*D5TH7Cr7Xs0XanfFibCEz8PJiLdTDFLranjC2ZF5DdwhaOoE54x vn!In*HNutDFBicQpp5*XfYR836mM/greenspaceflare1.jpg?dc=4675446358473738811

OOC: If you were workin for the VUSSP ( , we'd call u a genius ;-)

IC: Pretty impressive
08-11-2003, 22:39
Why thank you! 8)

OOC: Genuis? :shock: 8)

:) After three straight days of planning Yurka has finally launched its multitude of defense sattelites. Plans to launch the lab are underway! This will no doubt bring our science to new leaps and bounds.
10-11-2003, 20:34
:) The space lab has been sent without any problems. Its first goal will be as a laboratory, then later on Yurka will add extra "parts". The government is keeping it classified, although we can be sure that it will launch the great nation of Yurka deep into the future. :)

The KSA (Kazquim Space Association) would like to see your research and materials you have used to make these satellytes. The KSA will be going into space soon for the first time. We have received over 300 billions dollars in funds to support it. We expect to expand in space travel.

We would also like to buy any equipment that you don't need from you.
13-11-2003, 01:51
Well Kazquim sorry but for the most part they are all Top Secret. Thus the 100 or so Defense Sattelites defending the lab. But if you need help once your in space be sure to ask us 8)

"The empire of Yurka plans to double the amount of defense sattelites as soon as possible."

The Republic of Evopia has been watching your Space Program devolop from day one and we have finally dicided to offer a Space Treaty
we shall let you Decide on the Contents of this Treaty.
13-11-2003, 22:40
What kind of treaty? Do you have any suggestions?!Fp3ZEx7vaygUj3kgTYVac6SgfpzSTvZDfPO6RcdXuRouEOon694QcAaj7VToHN7IeFdAaHwR CpV53ra*NgkDYKY3DmQ/zk172.jpg?dc=4675446955946257583
Repairs to our space facilities are now fully automated! We are now sending scientists en masse' daily to our science station. Also, we will send our top tech guys to the main defense stations to help with security! No enemy space craft are allowed to approach Yurka space without asking ahead of time, or else they will be shot down or be victim to an EMP missile.

Credonia donates your nation a total of $15 BILLION towards your space agency as a sign of friendship and good will.
14-11-2003, 18:59
Thankyou Credonia. If you ever need anything, feel free to ask!
14-11-2003, 19:12
OOC: Very cool pictures, and very smart move. The vast majority of space combat is in Earth you can get a lot more bang for your buck with unmanned, no FTL, no shields, no bull____ satelites then huge superships (unless you have faraway colonies to protect).

Though, it is always nice to have a couple decades of such satelites in space...rather then a few short years.

Good to see a smart player for a change.
14-11-2003, 19:20
OOC: Thanks Wazzu!

IC: Thanks to genetic engineering breakthroughs, we are coming closer to a cure for cancer than ever before! We've also sent a few dozen more satelites up to protect our defenses.
14-11-2003, 19:23
we of the Remmonlands are interested in purchasing the plans for booster rockets and satelite systems

we intend to proceed with testing of our own systems soon and will be using the fusion reactors we obtained some time ago to power these satelites and stations

our first plan is to setup a number of laser equipped satelites for shooting down hostile missiles and aircraft

the second step would be an armed research station in earth orbit

and last would be the construction of an orbital shipyard
14-11-2003, 19:38
We could always make a trade, the booster rocket technology for the fushion reactor technology?
14-11-2003, 19:58
hmm, i might do that, what is the capicity of those booster rockets??
14-11-2003, 20:03
Well they were able to launch my satelites ok. :twisted: 4 of them were even able to launch a 400,000 ton section of the lab. How efficient are your fusion reactors?
14-11-2003, 20:07
they are Deuterium fusion reactors (but can be easily modified for other materials) which use deuterium (H-2) to create Helium (He-4), that reaction generates aproximately 3.2MeV per atom created

it's a hell of lot smaller and more powerfull then a fission reactor
14-11-2003, 20:21
The trade sounds well. What are the chances of it blowing up or back-firing?
14-11-2003, 20:41
as long as it remains undamaged the chances of it blowing up are pretty much zero, if the generator for some odd reason where damaged it would almost certainly shutdown the reaction because the magnetic containment field would fail (note that this would certainly devastate the reactor, but leave the surrounding pretty much intact)

fusion reactors however require large and extremely powerfull electromagnets which makes them somewhat large and bulky at the moment

you'd be best off simply putting them in space in portions

all our research has in the meantime switched to producing satelites and a prototype satelite with an SpE laser has already been produced (SpE stands for Space Electric)
14-11-2003, 20:44
So are you willing to trade the booster technology for the fusion technology? Our satelite blue prints, unfortunately, can't be sold at this time due to national security.
14-11-2003, 21:46
So far our defense satelites number in the upper 500 range. We are now preparing to launch the last huge group of them to protect our lab.

Yurka would like to gratiously thank Guanyu for the use of they're planet, Theta Centauri. They were also kind enough to transport our people there.*dWSbq3furCO*TjOBR1dK40WaT93rs3jH6UXahQm8BlEOHC8MRLnApZGZ*HcvA6RMQ9UMqSd2Hto2f8*Ok6gyS9Lyo3 JaA4xxg9De!yr5uvH9A/Ecosphere.jpg?dc=4675446358472572807
Here are our future plans for the small colony we will slowly build.
15-11-2003, 18:19
very well, we will trade

a small transport ship with the required components and plans has just departed the remmonlands capital city's harbor, together with a team of technicians

we await the arrival of your rocket booster technology

we have also just compeleted testing of our defense satelites and are currently busy constructing a re-entry vehicle for the space crews we'll be sending up to our stations (also under development)
15-11-2003, 18:24
The booster technology will be there shortly. You have our thanks. (Oh don't fly over Yurka :wink: its not exactly safe)
16-11-2003, 02:54
Thanks to Guanyu we will now be sending 300,000,000 colonists onto some distant planet in space momentarily 8) . Hopefully they're absense will make room for elves, demons, and other such beings who can help us strenghthen the genepool of Yurka.

This is a sad day for Yurka's science program. 439 of our 850 satelites are out of commision and being repaired. The scientists in the lab haven't responded... This may be due to the EMP shockwaves or from the missiles themselves. At this time we are unable to check on them due to widespread war in Yurka.
16-11-2003, 23:20
The Nation of Packilvania is interested in borrowing the techology neede to transport my country off word <preferebly the moon>. We are always hampered by nations that don't like our utopian State.
16-11-2003, 23:40
excuse me, Utopian ? doesn't that require a 0% crime rate ???

Crime is a serious problem

looks like you're not exactly Utopian

btw, a Utopian state would require that everyone has exactly the same of everything, which makes progressive tax rates a must and social welfare almost certainly an important factor
17-11-2003, 00:18
Yurka, on the other hand, is a Utopian society.

We, the people of the Great Crater, and its formalized community Cratership, respectfully request permission to visit your scientific laboratories and study your satellite systems for ourselves. In return we promise you our friendship, possible use of our small military in any event that may cause you to need them, a single future technological breakthrough we may make, and all the rocks you desire.

Sounds alright to me.

:) This just in! Our scientists aboard the lab are AOK. They were able to restore the power to the ship and the cure for cancer will be under lock and key within Yurka's palace for further testing. :)
18-11-2003, 23:12
So far the 39 closest satelites to the lab have been repaired, with the AI repairing the rest via robot repairers.
19-11-2003, 21:57
The lab has finally begun experimenting on humans, hopefully, with the help of biological engineering and gene tech, the people of Yurka will finally become something far more than "human". The many weaknesses of the flesh will soon be stamped out. We need more research subjects however, due to many of them dying after the testing.
24-11-2003, 11:23
27-11-2003, 21:18
The space colony citizens can finally be put to use! With only 10% of Yurka still alive after the war, it is time to rebuild, and we will need all the help we can get.
10-12-2003, 18:57
All is well with the space program. The colony is now fully functional and the inhabitants are quickly building up its defenses and the like. We'd like to thank the colonist for their hard work in such dire times, we take it space is nice and quiet?
10-12-2003, 19:29
Everything is fine and we have finally begun construction of a new fighter project. Costs are skyrocketing, and any funds from our parent nation would be most appreciated.
