Silvadusi Space Agnecy Headquarters

Regni, Silvadus

The Silvadusi Space Agency was established in 1977 and has since been one of the most funded programs in Yggdrasil. In 1979 the Heimdallr 4, as part of the Heimdallr (Heimdall) program, became the first successful attempt to launch an astronaut into space and placed into orbit. The Asgard (Åsgard) program began in 1982 to explore the inner and outer planets with unmanned probes. The Asgard 2 was put into orbit around Venus, Asgard 3 around Mars, and the Asgard 4 around Mercury. The Asgard 5 was sent to explore all of the outer planets, with the Asgard 6 put into orbit around Jupiter, Asgard 7 around Saturn, Asgard 8 around Uranus, and the Asgard 9 around Neptune. Simultaneously the Máni (Måne) program ran alongside the Asgard program starting in 1985, and was the first program to send unmanned probes to Luna, both in orbit and to land on it's surface. The Máni 3 was the first probe put into orbit around Luna and the Máni 7 was the first probe to land on the Lunar surface successfully. With the last probe of the Asgard program launched in 1993 and the last probe of the Máni program launched in 1995, the Sól (Sol) program began in 1999 which sent probes to study Sol. By 2002 Silvadus had probes orbiting nearly all major astronomical objects in the Solar System, with all the space programs no longer launching probes and continuing to only observe for the next decade.

In 1997 the Infrared Space Telescope (Infrarød Romteleskop, abbreviated IRRT) was launched, followed by the Ultraviolet Space Telescope (Ultrafiolett Romteleskop, abbreviated UVRT) in 1999 and the X-ray Spectroscopy Space Telescope (Røntgen Spektroskopi Romteleskop, abbreviated RSRT) in 2003. All three space telescope were launched in order to map the sky and to study and observe stellar and galactic phenomenon. In 2014 the Exoplanetary Transit and Oscillation Space Telescope (Eksoplanetariske Transitt og Oscillasjon Romteleskop, abbreviated ETORT) was launched to study extrasolar planets through planetary transit and radial velocity. The Exoplanetary Characterisation Space Telescope (Eksoplanetariske Karakterisering Romteleskop, abbreviated EKRT) was launched in 2021 to observe the atmosphere of extrasolar planets and constrain models of their internal structure.

In 2011 the Týr (Ty) program began, which was to explore Mars. The Týr 1 was the first probe put into orbit around Mars and the Týr 3, in 2018, was the first to land on it's surface along with a rover onboard; the last unmanned probe of the Týr program was launched in 2026. The Sif (Siv) program began in 2022 which sent probes to Saturn and it's moon Titan. The last probe was sent to Titan in 2034 and was the first probe to land on it's surface. In 2035 the Freyja (Frøya) program alongside the Loki (Loke) program began, which sent probes to Venus and Mercury respectively. The Freyja program launched it's last probe in 2041 and the Loki program launched it's last probe in 2043. In 2043 the Hel program began with the intent of studying dwarf planets; including Ceres, Pluto, and Eris. The last probe was launched in 2050.

In 2037 the Gamma Ray Space Telescope (Gammastråling Romteleskop, abbreviated GSRT) was launched to study cosmological phenomenon. Exoplanetary Direct Imaging Space Telescope (Eksoplanetariske Direkte Avbildning Romteleskop, abbreviated EDART) was launched in 2041 to directly image exoplanets and exomoons.

In 2050 the Ymir (Yme) program began, with the intent of colonizing the inner planets and moons of outer planets. In 2050 the Ymir 1 was launched and colonized Luna, with the Ymir 2 launched in 2054 to colonize Mars, and the Ymir 3 launched in 2058 to colonize Venus. The Ymir 4 and 5 were launched in conjunction with each other in 2062, with the Ymir 4 to colonize Mercury and the Ymir 5 to colonize Titan.

Current Status: Ymir 4 using gravity assist from Venus, Ymir 5 has traveled a third of it's journey to Saturn
