AADZ Significant Buildings List
The AADZ and Duskworks congratulates the following settlers for the construction of these significant cultural buildings after the recovery of their lost blueprints.
Ham for their work in restoring the Lex Fridman's Kettle, a variant of the Grind N' Brew sought after for its incredible engineering. Frequently used as a place for conversation and podcast. The coffee here is incredibly valuable and is bought by rich billionaires from Earth frequently.
Lamp for their work in the creation and engineering of the Tiger RoverWorks, one of the most advanced feats of autonomous rover machinery in existence, it was decorated during the Lunar New Year Festival.
DK_Power for their work in the restoration of Gregor Mendel's Greenhouse, named after the posthumously recognized founder of the modern science of genetics. As such, this greenhouse contains the bleeding edge advances in genetic crop science, allowing for much greater yields than anywhere else.
GrilledCheeseSandies for their work in the rebuilding of the Leon Dusk's Super Straw. A water filter made from an experimental version of a Water Filtration module that Leon Dusk himself had designed during a science expo on Mars. This building is able to filter water better, faster and more efficient than any other Water Filtration module on the red planet. Some say it even tastes better, whether or not this is placebo, has yet to be determined.
Lamp for their development and expertise in the extraction of minerals from the Martian surface, as they developed Velma's Mining Rig. This mining rig was specifically constructed for mining upon the Metis deposits but was lost due to unforeseen complications. Now having been restored its former glory, it will continue its work on the Martian regolith.
Maxbrand99, for their work in the creation of the Library of New Alexandria. It is inspired and is a spiritual successor of the Great Library of Alexandra back on Earth in Egypt. The New Alexandria Library is the largest research institution on Mars, dedicated to the greater Mars colonization and terraforming effort. It will come to be regarded as a capital of knowledge and learning and a major stepping stone in the progress towards a true interplanetary species. It also holds the history of the colonization effort, the present industrialization effort, and it will hold the future knowledge of terraforming.
Jumpgate, for expediting the industrialization and colonization of Mars. The Tipper Workshop is named after Constance Tipper, an English metallurgist and crystallographer. Her work was important in the investigation of brittle fracture, and the ductile-brittle transition of metals used in the construction of warships. She was the first female full-time faculty member at Cambridge's Department of Engineering. Her main specialization was in investigations of metal strength. This workshop is a further development in her work, with the bleeding edge techniques in creating the strongest and most durable metals.
Yaboi, for their construction of the Chemical's By Curie chemical laboratory. This chemical laboratory is named after Marie Curie. She is a chemist who pioneered research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win the Nobel Prize twice, and the only person to win the Nobel Prize in two different fields. She founded major centres of medical research in Paris and Warsaw, and during World War I she developed mobile radiography units to provide X-ray services to field hospitals. As such, this Chem Lab continues her research and is very important to medical research on Mars, and influential in the efficient production of plastics.
Ham, for their development of Fincke's Rocket Fuel, a special Sabatier Reactor that is named after Michael Fincke. Michael Fincke was an American astronaut who held the former record for the longest time in space (381.6 days). He is a distinguished graduate from the USAF ROTC, Squadron Officer School and Test Pilot Programs, a recipient of the Sewickley Academy Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2005. This Sabatier reactor will help produce methane for many of the hopper rockets that span the martian surface. These hopper rockets act as short distance cargo ships, delivering cargo in record times.
Pancake Man, for the creation of the Dyson's Wicked Cells Solar Panel, named after Freeman Dyson. He was an English-American physicist and mathematician, famous for his works in quantum field theory, random matrices, astrophysics, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and engineering. One of his most popular theories involve the Dyson Sphere thought experiment, an attempt to explain how a space-faring civilization would get all of its energy. These solar panels are a homage to the Dyson legacy, being one of the most efficient solar panels on Mars.
adastraerik, for the creation of the Solar By Sagan Solar Panel. This extremely efficient solar panel is titled after Carl Sagan, an American astronomer, planetary scientist, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astro-biologist, author and science communicator. He pioneered research on extraterrestrial life, such as the demonstration of the production of amino acids from basic chemicals through radiation. Sagan also assembled the first physical messages sent into space, the Pioneer Plaque and the Voyager Golden Record. A small golden plaque is inscribed onto the base of this solar panel, in the same universal language that was written on the Pioneer Plaque.
Primo, for the construction of Marisol's Lab, a special chemical laboratory named after Marisol, an up and coming mycologist intern of BrouHaHa, the solar system's largest asteroid mining company. They are responsible for the construction of all Metis Shields, which are often seen on Mars covering large swaths of land. Her expertise is on mycorhizzae, fungae that are symbiotic with the roots of plants, and help them absorb nutrients from rocks. This chemical laboratory is specialized in the same field as her, soil research and mycology. This chemical laboratory also pioneers research into the filtering process that cryogenic atmospheric distillers use on Mars.
blueTab, for the printing and structuring of the Anouk's Printshop, an incredibly high quality 3D print shop. The printshop is named after Anouk Wipprecht, a talented Dutch based Hi-Tech fashion designer pioneering a combination of fashion design and science, engineering and user interaction design. Her Intel-Edison based 'Spider Dress' is a perfect example of this aesthetic, where sensors and moveable arms on the dress help to create a more defined boundary of personal space while employing a fierce style. This print shop is exceptionally equipped to construct and fabricate highly precise electronics and materials.
Darkcyde543, for the development of the Mines of Elysium. Named after the quadrangle that contains the volcanoes Elysium Mons and Albor Tholus, the NASA InSight rover landed here decades ago in order to conduct preliminary geological studies on the Martian surface. The InSight lander also helped measure seismic activity and provide accurate 3D models of the planet's interior. This Mining Rig is extremely adept at scooping up regolith in order to be delivered to massive smelting modules dotted across the Duskworks landing.
RichieT, for the manufacture of Zubrin's Flume. This cryogenic atmospheric distiller sucks in the atmosphere and super chills it in order to solidify it into thermal-controlled packages for other modules to process. This C.A.D is named after Robert Zubrin, an American aerospace engineer, author and was a strong advocate for humanity's exploration into Mars. He and his colleague were the driving force behind Mars Direct, a proposal in a research paper to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of Mars colonization. This C.A.D is a behemoth compared to the standard C.A.Ds, allowing it to capture much more atmosphere and solidify it than any other.
Yaboi, for the assembly of the Hammer of Metis. This state-of-the-art Smelter comes with all of your smelting needs, including CO2 to Carbon processing for the smelting of steel. This smelter was named after the Metis material, a metallic material only found on the ninth asteroid which crashed down onto Mars following the tragic accident with the BrouHaHa asteroid mining company. The US Government along with its United States Bureau of Mines currently holds control over the main deposit.
Steve Woody, for the development of the Woody's Workshop. This massive engineering bay was used to create thousands of habitation modules before the engineering bay suffered an incident involving a malfunctioning explorer rover. Now that it has been restored and can continue its life's work of fabricating and engineering building modules for the greater Duskworks area. Paint and etching of sunflower artistry can be seen upon close in-person inspection of the engineering bay.
Ham, for the building of Glushko's Greenhouse. This greenhouse uses similar genetic engineering technology that other extremely high tier greenhouses use, but with bleeding edge technological advancements in chemistry and low-gravity research. These all lead to very optimal in-soil plant growing that could rival even hydro and aeroponics. This greenhouse is named after Valentin Glushko, a Ukrainian soviet rocket engineer. He was influential in the Soviet's space race against the United States, has a stamp in his honor and designed a lot of the Soviet's rocket engines, his own bureau designed the RD-101, RD-110, RD-103 and more liquid propellant engines.
Yaboi, for the creation of the Opportunity Works. This building was named after the idea of ideal circumstances, and the Rover that originally landed on Mars over fifty years ago today. The rover was tough for an early 2000s rover, it withstood moderate dust storms ventured into other ideal landing sites. It stood true to its name, being active for far longer than any of its creators originally intended. It was considered one of NASA's most successful rover ventures onto the Red Planet. During 2018, a planetary dust storm caused the rover to go into hibernation and to hopefully turn back on once the dust storm passed. However, the rover never turned back on. The rover lasted for 5,352 sols.
Erick Johnson, for the recreation of the Green Mars By Robinson Greenhouse. Named after a legendary trilogy chronicling the transformation of the Red Planet we at Duskworks live on, to a future Green Mars, where all can live and strive without the use of EVA suits. Now, it holds as a small window into a future, where the growing sprouts shows what the surface can and will be, one day. Development of this Greenhouse was overseen by some of the top bioengineers under Duskworks employ, and to see it being recreated after being lost so long ago, is quite nostalgic.
