""Earth Death" in 25 minutes. "Earth Death" in 25 minutes."
- Computer of Platform One
"Earth Death" was the term used to apply to the destruction of Earth in 5.5/Apple/26. At this time, the National Trust had preserved the planet until their money ran out. Earth was evacuated and the gravity satellites holding back the expansion of the Sun were shut down.
The term was used by the guests of Platform One who had gathered on the station to observe the Sun roast the planet. The station was almost destroyed in the explosion.
