The Chronicles of Local Space

A fictional exploration of nearby star systems
Sic itur ad astra.
Thus do we reach the stars.
Virgil, Aenid book IX


By the 30th century, humans had spread to over a dozen worlds in star systems near the Sun, where people reside in settlements. Three basic categories of settlements may be found in the inhabited systems: colonies, planetary settlements and space settlements.

The settlements in Local Space are listed below.
