The Lemkhi Imperial University of Space Sciences is known primarily for its studies in astronomy and astrophysics, with a smaller group working on theoretical jump mechanics.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The main university is located on Lemkhi (Dagudashaag 2908). The university maintains a class B starport on Lemkhi, mainly for the use of transporting researchers and supplies.

There are five main campuses, each linked by a subrail system. The main starport is at Illusheke, the capital and largest university campus. It is located at the rotational north pole of the world. The other four campuses, Rupake, Ionaa, Surashil, and Vaaidhiri, are almost equidistant around the equator.

Most of the habitable areas, including the living areas, domitories, university classroom, lecture hall, and research areas on Lemkhi are dug into the surface of the planet, rather than domes on the surface. There are several buildings on the surface, mainly astronomical observatories and other sensor and communications equipment.

The current principle, Count Shannash Elhodiri, holds the post for both his research history and ability to drum up research funds. The Megacorporations Naasirka, Sharurshid, and Makhidkarun all fund research, along with numerous other corporations and individuals.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Lemkhi Imperial University of Space Sciences (LIUSS) was granted an Imperial charter in 1013 when the number of academic and related personnel exceeded the non-research personnel on what previous was a small Imperial research base. The university also operates a small base on Kassandra (Dagudashaag 3208). This base operates a series of space borne telescopes in the system.
