PEV-Scale Accelerators are a technology on the Applied Sciences technology tree. With a research cost of 130 , it unlocks one Planetary Exploitation and one Support Module (Engine).
"The construction of a high-energy particle accelerator (with energy measured in peta-electron volts) requires highly advanced engineering, science, materials, and energy supplies. Without this type of machine, explorations deeper into sub-quantum mechanics would not be possible"
"Building a very large scale particle accelerator will permit the discovery of the existence and characteristics of WIMPs - Weakly Interacting Massive Particles. This will be critical for the understanding of dark matter, dark energy, and nonbaryonic particles in general."
Lossless Fusion PodsEdit
"Increased knowledge of particle behavior and containment fields has led to a handful of improvements in energy technology that make starship engines faster and more efficient. Both individual ships and fleets benefit form this advance.
- Sophons possess this technology at the beginning.
