We have just entered the 23rd century. Global warming and the overexploitation of natural resources have made life on Earth increasingly difficult.
In this crisis-ridden era, the company NWTM (New Way Toward Mars) decided to take the initiative, and embarked on a mission to gradually shift the planet Mars from its orbit, using a solar parachute to position it in the H.Z. (Habitable Zone around the sun). This manoeuvre has made Mars habitable for human beings. The exodus can now begin.
So NWTM starts building Cosmoport, an enormous tentacular infrastructure, the point of departure for future shuttles to the Red Planet.
