In 2026, France, along with 22 partners, including 15 European countries, embarks on a radically new project: the Guianese Space Elevator (GSE). This project will elevate France to the forefront of nations with a perspective on the future.

On March 11, 2064, a group of P-divers board two large chemical tankers sailing in the English Channel, near Dunkirk, in the very dense Channel area.


The Kourou space center (CSG) has embarked on a colossal project: a space elevator built around a carbon nanotube chain located in the CSG enclosure. It produces a hyper-flexible and hyper-resistant "carbon-silk" cable, stretched between land and space by the centrifugal force of the Earth's rotation. The lifts will ensure the transport of freight at a nominal cost, until reaching the 36 000 km geosynchronous orbit. It should provide access to all terrestrial orbits, but also transit to orbits of the asteroid belt, the Moon and Mars.
