Callisto is the third largest moon of Jupiter in the Sol system and a human colony. With little civilian 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]

History[edit]

Callisto was originally discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. Joint efforts by Earth's national governments to colonize Callisto, along with the other Jovian Moons, were underway by 2080.[2] In 2170, Callisto was the site of the signing of the Callisto Treaty which officially ended the Interplanetary War.[3] Callisto also eventually became the site of a UNSC naval depot.[4]

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.
