Ganymede is a natural satellite governed by the Unified Earth Government and is the largest moon of Jupiter in the Sol system. It was partially terraformed though it supposedly retains a harsh climate.[1] Ganymede is home to a significant human population.

The country Aigburth is located on Ganymede, as well as the Low/Zero Gravity Testing Facility, the developer of the EVA Armor. Subsequently, the EVA Armor was created and tested at Ganymede at Lister, Aigburth.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • The country Aigburth is a reference to the British TV series Red Dwarf. It is from the name The Aigburth Arms, where the character Lister was found abandoned as a baby. The city Lister is also a reference to the show, Dave Lister being one of the main characters.
  • In the Halo: Reach live-action short Spaceport, Ganymede is a destination listed at the Manassas Spaceport.
