Item Number: CAA-389

Containment Class: Gamma


Earth, Moon, and CAA-389. (CAA-389 circled in red)

Exam/Control Protocols: Due to its scattered and variable nature, CAA-389 is virtually incontainable. Several stages of containment are to be used to somewhat contain CAA-389. Hundreds of navigation drones have been launched and stationed on 47% of CAA-389’s component particles, somewhat securing the structure of CAA-389. Orbiting Site-044 and Orbiting Site-045 have been armed with large electromagnetic manipulators to move the CAA-389 instances away or allow them to burn up into the atmosphere if they are small enough.

Item Description: CAA-389 is a large cloud of macroscopic basalt and granite particles located within Earth’s outer exosphere. Particles within CAA-389 are typically three point seven (3.7) metres in diameter and nine hundred and eighty (980) kilograms in mass, however each can vary.

CAA-389 has been discovered to be a part of the protoplanet Theia, a Mars-sized protoplanet which existed for 40 million years in the early inner Solar System prior to colliding with Earth and creating the Moon. This was found due to examinations of early rock isotope matching with Zirconium in the ocean area of the Philippine Plate and a recovered particle of CAA-389, henceforth CAA-389-1. CAA-389-1 and the recovered ocean sample had a 97% match in composition.

Discovery: CAA-389 was first discovered in January 1981 during a search for a new star in the Canis Major constellation. The star was found however it and all of it’s neighbouring stars were covered by a then unknown object, soon to be known as a CAA-389 instance. As this ended up as a global phenomenon, the CAA Federation began to investigate and later secured, designated and contained CAA-389.
