The Eligius Corporation is a mining company that transported prisoners to the Asteroid Mining Penal Colony.
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 colonies in space as well as mining.
In The Tinder Box, Jackson mentions to Abby that Becca first developed the Nightblood for the Eligius Company to protect against solar radiation for long duration space missions, in which criminals were put into hypersleep and were given Nightblood to protect from solar radiation.
