- The alliance name "The way to Amalthea" is based on a Russian book (Путь на Альматею) also known as "Destination: Amaltheia".
A cargo spaceship, propelled by a photon engine with a large reflective mirror ("sail"), visits the Jupiter system to deliver a cargo to a manned science station on Amalthea. Damaged by meteorites, the spaceship falls into Jupiter, but survives the pressure and floats in the dense atmosphere; the crew manage to work around the damaged mirror and start the main engine to escape Jupiter and finally reach Amalthea. [wikipedia]
We chose this name because It depicts what we want to achieve as an alliance: cooperation to reach our goals, even in troubled times.
Internet spaceships: serious business since 2008.
