This facility is the prototype and model testbed for permanent off-Earth habitats. The Luna Colony is built using the same technology and a similar structure, and asteroids are being slowly modified to create permanent space habitats. It encloses roughly 14Km2 of land area in a roughly oval cavern that is about 5km long, 3km wide, and 1km tall (from Sea-floor to rooftop). Advanced materials capable of reinforcing the structure form vertical arches running all around the torus.

The Sea, Island, and Lake, are each roughly oval in shape. Both the Sea and Lake have larger expanses of open water toward the narrow ends of the oval.

Climate Change

The climate inside each biodome is designed to replicate a specific habitats. This one replicates Northern Ontario in the Thousand Islands region, pre-industrial age. It is the cutting-edge testbed for self-contained ecosystems. The Luna Colony is modelled on this temperate environment, though it also has many other ecosystems in play.

Almost all human activity is restricted to the constructed environment in the walls of the biodome. Ten thousand people live and work in the biodome, but it is built to be able to sustain ten times as many. Access to the wilderness is quite limited, but everyone can go out and enjoy nature on occasion.

Temperature Patterns

Cool temperate climate similar to the Thousand-Islands region of the St. Lawrence. This includes four seasons and real weather. Internal temperatures are modelled on the actual weather patterns from the area starting in the 1700s.

Precipitation Patterns

Generally controlled and predictable, but not always.

Sea Level

The outer rim of the cavern is a narrow and deep salt water sea that surrounds the 'island' (avg 500m deep, 100m wide). The inner rim is a freshwater lake (around the central column) of similar width and depth. The lake surface is 50m higher than sea level. Rivers, waterfalls, and so on flow out from Lake to the Sea, through wetland plateaus, forests, and so on.
