The Eligius Corporation is a mining company that transported prisoners to the Asteroid Mining Penal Colony. The company is from before the first Nuclear Apocalypse.

History Edit

Throughout the Series Edit

In Echoes, an article titled "Contact Lost With Asteroid Mining Penal Colony" from the West Coast Herald can be seen on one of Raven's monitors as she explains 2048 nuclear reactor technology to Jasper and Monty. This is the first mention of humans living in space farther out than Earth orbit. It was implied that the Eligius Corporation was involved with the penal colony in space as well as mining.

In The Tinder Box, Jackson mentions to Abby that Becca first developed the Nightblood for the Eligius Mining Company to protect against solar radiation for long space missions, in which criminals were put into hypersleep and were given Nightblood to protect them from radiation.

In Praimfaya, the Gagarin Prisoner Transport has a sign that says "Eligius Corporation", when Clarke and Madi see the ship land on the ground.
