Welcome, University of Osiris students, to Dr. J. Chris Bourdier’s class on Advanced Astrogation and Stellar Mapping III. Today Dr. Bourdier will take you through the discovery of The Verse, the History of the Grand Exodus, the detailed structure of The Verse and the arrival, terrraforming and colonization of the worlds Humanity now calls “home”.
You can start your virtual learning experience with Dr. Bourdier’s white paper, The Verse in Numbers. As it is over 100 pages long, you’ll want to set up someplace comfy to start reading. Thanks to the wonders Cortex Asynchronous Chat, Dr. Bourdier will be available to answer your questions whenever you have the time to post them.
The fine folks at Quantum Mechanix would like us to remind you that this document contains much of the scientific data that was used to construct their recent publication, The Complete and Official Map of The Verse, the first comprehensive guide to the planets and systems we inhabit. While owning a copy of the Map of The Verse is not required to take this class, having one in hand as you read this document will no doubt increase the odds of you actually passing Dr. Bourdier’s course*.
Have good learning!
*The fact that QMx underwrote the construction of the new Astrophysics wing of the University of Osiris has nothing whatsoever to do with it.
