Foundry: Official Classic
The planet was the very first extrasolar colony world established by mankind, founded at some point prior to 2064 A.D. (and following the discovery of the hyperspatial jump in 2031 A.D.), with numerous extrasolar colonies being mentioned by Susan Calvin during an interview given in that year. In later millennia, would be renamed "Aurora," which means "dawn," to signify a dawning of a new age for the Spacer culture. It was the innermost world orbiting Tau Ceti. It was famous among the Spacer worlds for its grape juice. It was also considered the strongest of the Spacer worlds, and therefore the practical leader of them. The head of Aurora's planetary government was called the "Chairman." Aurora at its height had a population of 200 million humans and 10 billion robots. The largest city on the planet was Eos, the administrative and robotic centre of Aurora where Han Fastolfe and Gladia Solaria lived.
