Aldrin Bubble is named after Astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr., the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11, one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, and the second person to walk on it.

Local Economy

Aldrin is truly a resort. It has hotels, casinos, whorehouses, theaters, and even an honest-to-God park with real grass. Wealthy tourists from all over Earth come for two-week stays. More than anywhere else, Aldrin is where money enters Artemis.[1]

New York has Fifth Avenue, London has Bond Street, and Artemis has The Arcade. The stores on The Arcade are very expensive so if you have to ask, you can’t afford it. The Ritz-Carlton Artemis occupies an entire block and extends five floors up and another five down. A single night there costs 12,000 slugs.

Aldrin is the closest bubble to the landing zone and contains the city's Port.

Businesses

Other Locations

  • Aldrin Park - the largest open area in Artemis, the park occupies the top four floors of Aldrin Bubble.

Connectors

Conrad Bubble has two connectors that provide direct access to Conrad and Armstrong Bubbles. Bean and Shepard Bubbles are also accessible by going the long way through Armstrong Bubble, which is the central hub.
