Callisto is a moon of Jupiter in the Sol system and a human colony. With little population to speak of, Callisto's purpose to the Unified Earth Government is primarily militaristic in nature; the moon's several UNSC bases are capable of launching their units and ships within an hour's notice.[1]

Overview[edit]

The moon is 99 percent the size Mercury, but only a third of the mass. While devoid of an atmosphere, ice formed on the moon.[1]

History[edit]

Early history[edit]

Callisto was originally discovered by Galileo.[1] Joint efforts by Earth's national governments to colonize Callisto, along with the other Jovian Moons, were underway by 2080.[3] In 2170, Callisto was the site of the signing of the Callisto Treaty which officially ended the Interplanetary War.[4] Callisto also eventually became the site of a UNSC naval depot.[2]

26th-century[edit]

Colonel Herzog claimed to have to deal with paperwork regarding surveillance here.[5]

Trivia[edit]

Callisto is named after the Greek mythological figure of the same name.
