It is not impossible to mine a star. Rich with liquid metallic resources, the gas giant Jupiter challenges harvesters with increased gravity, intense magnetic fields, and extreme temperatures. Only the most tenacious profiteers would dare operate here. Prevailing science of Corpus industry thrives in the clouds of Jupiter’s outer atmosphere.
Computing devices, weapons, ship parts and robotics – the Corpus are on the bleeding edge of high-technology development. Precisely machined metals and flexible synthetic composites are the signature of the animalistic robots that the Corpus have built as their proxies. Artificial intelligence in these robotics is robust, but intentionally restricted, ensuring a capable but subservient workforce.
