The Vandenberg Bus
This is the nickname that has been given to the reactionless-propulsion vehicle that has been fleetingly observed on several occasions by EA/LEON sensor platforms in Earth orbit. Presumably it operates between the planetary surface and somewhere in orbit. The Vandenberg Bus appears to be based at what was once Vandenberg Air Force Base, which survived the Fall and appears mostly intact in satellite imagery. There are some hints of ongoing activity at the site in the same imagery.
The Vandenberg Bus has been observed making multi-G maneuvers with no visible exhaust. Edward Novotny, the EA’s resident aerospace engineer, speculates that the propulsion technology used by the Bus might be xenotechnological in origin, possibly related to whatever means the Factors use to visit Sol unobserved.
