" As i stepped down from the passenger hold of the shuttle, i was immediately struck by the cool winds of Mars upon my face. But they felt comfortable, unlike what would have happened half a millenia ago, when just stepping outside without adequate protection would be fatal to us. But after centuries of delicate terraforming, Mats had finally become our first true home outside Terra and Inaria." Lorann sanguinus meros, talking about his experiences on visiting Mars, by then terraformed by mankindTerraforming is the act of transforming a world which is initially hostile to the biology of a sentient species, to a world that is habitable by them. In its most popular usage, terraforming refers to planets, moons and other celestial bodies being transformed from hostile, uninhabitable worlds to worlds that are just as habitable as Terra for humans. It can be undertaken in two forms, scientifically and with the usage of Void energy based terraforming, with the latter being mostly used in present times due to it being far more faster. It has tremendously aided mankind, with almost every world being terraformable, mankind now has the ability to claim practically every last planet and moon that exists out there in the milky way galaxy.
Famous celestial bodies that were terraformed
- The four galilean moons
- Titania Triton
Scientific terraforming has its roots mostly in nineteenth and twentieth century chemistry, physics and biology as well as other scientific subjects. Void based terraforming however, was developed in the late 23rd century by a team which included Hans Jurgen Kürsch, Aiden Tallorann, Soras Valcoran and Augustus Ludwig.
