Heaven lasts long, and Earth abides

What is the secret of their durability?

Is it because they do not live for themselves

That they endure so long?

~ Lao Tzu, Datalinks

Quantum Power is a Build technology in Alpha Centauri.

Background[ | ]

Earth scientist Max Planck first coined the term "quantum" to describe an individual particle of light. Planck though each quantum was indivisible, so that a fraction of a quantum could not exist. One of the more startling discoveries arising from Unified Field Theory was that individual quantum actually could be split into component sub-particles, much like atoms may be split through fission. The energy released by Quantum Power is several orders of magnitude greater than ordinary Fusion Power.
