From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Project: OUTBOUND was an exploration and colonization initiative created in the 24th-century.[1]



In 2291, humanity developed the Shaw-Fujikawa Translight Engine.[2][3] It wasn't until 2310 that the first improved drives entered production leading to the creation of Project: OUTBOUND.[1]


The capstone to OUTBOUND would be the[1] Colonial Administration Authority[4] vessel Odyssey,[1] which would launch from Luna[5] on January 1, 2362,[6] and settle Reach in the Epsilon Eridani system.[1][5]
