In C.E. 15, world famous scientist George Glenn sets out on a seven year mission to explore the planet Jupiter. Before leaving, Glenn reveals to the world the secret of his amazing abilities and distributes detailed files on how people can genetically engineer "Coordinators" like himself. His exploratory ship Tsiolkovsky reaches Jupiter in C.E. 22, where Glenn makes the amazing discovery of Evidence 01 on Jupiter's moon Europa. Seven years later, Glenn returns to the Earth Sphere with Evidence 01, an enormous fossil of a winged whale that finally proves the existence of extraterrestrial life. However, by the time of Glenn's return, the topic of Coordinators has become highly controversial, eventually leading to his assassination in C.E. 53.
