The United Republics Space Administration (URSA) is the most successful individual Space Program in the world. The program began due to the need for satellite images and a mathematical philosophy that if you have three satellites that can see a location on earth, through triangulation you can pinpoint a near exact location. The main space launching center, hangers, and development center are on East Island, Islas Malvinas (Falklands). 

The Early Years

When URSA started it was based off the former NASA space program of the US. Thus the UR went out of its way to receive US and Floridian Engineers and Scientists to kick off their space program.  The UR would go to launch its first satellite with their help. And URSA would never look back. Over the next three years URSA launched a total of 12 satellites and was successful in employing a working military GPS which was able to affect the Communism Conflicts in Bolivia and Peru. 


After launching many rockets. Scientists Rubin Cotza proposed that the UR could put a platform up in Space and attach solar panel technology developed in Antartida to it and a few basic rooms to create a lab. Overtime this project grew and became known as the URSA Space Station. URSA continues to maintain and develop URSA Space Station, which now includes ten researchers that are on the station at once, and rotate down every few months when the Station is stocked through one of the two URSA shuttles: Pacifica and Atlantea. The first international astronauts joined URSA Space Station in June 1991 from Poland. URSA now consists of many arrays of solar panels and a total of five lab stations with full living quarters, kitchen and exercise rooms for the crew of ten. 

Artimus Lunar Base

Following URSA Space Station, a lunar base was proposed. In the mid 80s URSA sent its first manned mission to the moon. Three more Artimus mission followed. Then an additional two, with the idea of finding an ideal location to set up a permanent residence on the moon, were sent to scout the potential landing sites. Eventually on Artimus Six, URSA found its ideal location.  A crater near the North Pole and region of Eternal Light, where the UR would dig and construct an underground base supplied by surface solar panels, an Algae CO2-Oxygen exchange, and eventually the construction of its own farming and agriculture. One consistent problem is the issue of having fresh water. Efforts have been made to recycle water, but water still needs to be resupplied every so often. After beginning construction of the Lunar Base, and realizing how much of an undertaking the project was, the UR looked for potential partners. They found Japan, the United States, and Chan Santa Cruz all willing to help. Japan and the US became major funders and have since completed their own components adding to the capacity of the base from 15 to 25 to its current 1991 capacity at 30 members. In 1994, a secret UR-USAN project coined Project Clean, resulted in safe-nuclear energy reactor, was completed and installed into Artimus Lunar Base. This and further expansion and construction led to Artimus Lunar Base to have a full capacity of 100 members, although in 1996 only 55 people permanently reside in Artimus Lunar Base. 

Spaceport One

Spaceport One is a small spaceport constructed in 1993, has the ability to launch observational shuttles around the moon and has launched satellites providing the Moon with communication and other amenities that are common on Earth. Also established a more stable Lunar-Earth communications system. 


Mars Observation Vehicle Expedition (MOVE) is a planned and proposed expedition program. Its main goal is to land a man on the Red Planet in 2005. Currently MOVE launched three satellites to orbit and take pictures of the planet.
