- In conjunction with Zefram Cochrane at "Earth Station Bozeman", the six L-5 colonies (Vanguard colony, Colony Roykirk, the Moss-Offenhouse colony, the NicholCorp facility, the Brynner Asteroid, and the Starling Habitat) take part in an experiment to create a stable subspace field. The experiment goes horribly wrong and all six habitats vanish. Among the roughly 2000 people missing and presumed dead is Christopher Brynner of Brynner Information Systems, who had moved to the lower-gravity Brynner Asteroid complex for health reasons.
