The first of two planetary surveys conducted jointly by NASA and the Japanese Space Agency (JSA). The survey employed the Queloz-Mayor Orbital Observatory (QMOO). The first survey was focused on G2 V stars within six light-years of Sol, scanned these stars for a planetary system containing one or more Earth-like planets. The search commenced in 2029 CE and was concluded in 2049 CE. Its results were surprising to asterologists of the time. Over half of the more than 10,000 G2 star systems surveyed possessed planets. Within that number the survey found thirty-eight that appeared to be near Earth-normal. Probes were constructed and launched toward these colony world candidates beginning in 2038CE (see –Origins I Probes).
