Vesta (designation 4 Vesta) is one of the largest asteroids in the Asteroid Belt, and the second-most-massive after Ceres. It hosts one of the largest settlements in the outer planets[1][2]. At some time during the UN-MCR Cold War, Vesta was the site of the Vesta Blockade, a confrontation between the UN and MCR that would delay the Martian terraforming efforts for over a century.

Trivia Edit

  • The ancient Roman goddess of the hearth, Vesta, is worshiped in a temple containing an altar on which a sacred fire was kept burning by the vestal virgins: identified with the original Greek goddess Hestia.
