NRxWave Evolution II: Mining Expedition To 433 Eros

Settle in, check your rad monitors, because you are sitting on 150 tons of LH2 and 50 kg of Uranium-235 and your nuclear thermal rocket is about to reach criticality. Next stop 433 Eros.

Following in the footsteps of Armstrong and Musk, Man had assumed his rightful place in the heavens with colonies established on Mars, Europa, and Titan. Massive stations were under construction at Earth’s Lagrange points. All these projects were hungry for resources. A Royal Charter was extended to the Near Earth Asteroid Company, a joint-stock corporation organized for the purpose of asteroid mining. Following extensive unmanned survey missions, 433 Eros, an S-Type asteroid laden with iron and platinum group metals, was selected for resource harvesting. After five years of missions to pre-position mining assets, the first manned expedition to 433 Eros was conducted by the twenty crewmembers of the SS Golden Hind. Intended to be a skeleton crew, they would oversee construction of crew-quarters, initiate robotic mining, and eventually return to earth, their names to be remembered forever.

  1. I included this thymopoetic mix in my latest post on ‘Air Superiority’. Hails.

  2. Nice songs, but what does this music specifically have to do with Neoreaction? Seems completely arbitrary to me – and the same goes for most of the recent “creative writing” published on this site.

    1. It has everything to do with neoreaction, which is just as much an aesthetic vision as it is a political philosophy. We have Post-Anathema for the visual representation of this worldview, and now we’ve started moving forward with a musical one. And if you don’t understand what purpose the creative writing section serves on Saturday, you’ve definitely missed the point of the whole site.

      1. I would like to see an explanation of how Moldbug and Land’s writings by any interpretation point in the direction of an “aesthetic vision”. Now, I’m not saying you guys can’t do what you want, I’m simply questioning the relevance.

        I say arbitrary in regards to Post-Anathema and it’s content also, which seems to be mainly heavily manipulated nature photography, sci-fi architectural artwork, classical sculpture, and military technology/gear. You may think these things are cool (I don’t mind looking at it), but slapping them together and proclaiming it a “worldview” comes off lazy and pretentious. And now synthwave (an ironic internet genre of music that plays on 80s pop-culture nostalgia) is supposed to fit into this? I honestly don’t see how. Because space exploration/extraterrestrial human civilization? To me it seems that you’re stepping out of boundaries by trying to be something you are not.

        As for the creative writing Saturday, my view is pretty much the same. It would probably be best to give up on trying to make your fringe political philosophy an all-encompassing cultural movement, and stick to writing essays. That’s my humble opinion.

  3. If this is the musical manifestation of this thinking, good luck.
