NETT launches to commence

Postby Jacobus Loki » Sun Apr 21, 2013 12:44 am

DSSI Negative Energy Transfer Technology satellites will be launched using envisioned rockets.

Port Halluci -

Count Loki announced the fusion of ancient and modern technology, as Envisioned rockets are to begin the launch of the newest NETT satellites.

"As you know, Envisioned objects can only exist within the boundaries of Kildare, or with rare exceptions, Illumination. The launch vehicles are therefore Envisioned to reach orbital velocity before leaving Kildari airspace. The satellites themselves, will of course be made of normal matter."

(NETT is a the proprietary technology of DSSI.)

"We expect to be able to provide clean, inexpensive electric power to Kildare and othe areas of Appollonia in the very near future."

Sounds pretty cool.

To Envision something of such complexity as a rocket delivering an orbital payload, including the proper fuel composition and a fully functioning guidance system is an achievement to be admired :yay:

The envisioners I gather work in teams, each focusing on a separate component and or sub-assembly of the launch vehicle. Coordination can be a bitch however. A similar experiment in Elwynnese Illumination on a similar premise in the era of the Old Duchy resulted in the rocket drilling into to the earth before exploding, which had the effect of depopulating a small portion of Illumination and reducing the overall number of envisoners in the word - something that was not considered altogether unfortunate by the regime in Eliria that time (who had never really wanted those dodgy buggers in Port Illumination in the first place).



We look forward to their attempts at realising fusion power ending all life on the planet.

It's not fusion power. Its electromagnetic.

And Envisioning a rocket is nothing compared to a "living" being.

Ah so, those Eldrich horrors we see lumbering about the landscape occasionally, devouring whatever as they may whatever stumbles into their frightful path... dry runs were they?

Whatever they are, they cannot exist outside Kildare.

Gods be thanked.

As fascinating as envisioned technology is, it's good to know any horrific mistakes cannot be spread beyond the borders of this venerable Dutchy. Cold comfort to those who live here, mind... :pale:

The launch of NETT1 was completed at 0300 local time. The satellite is transmitting, and will reach microsynchronous orbit later today.

The primary NETT satellite system is now in place. Following final orbital adjustments the system will begin to test power generation.

Kildare Power expects to begin receiving load in the very near future.
