A Killing Wind
The shorthand for a Laser Internet Network (LIN), Lifi is ubiquitous among spacers. White communication lasers can transmit huge amounts of information over long distances, particularly with advanced receiver arrays.
Lifi also makes up the so-called Lifi Highways, space lanes throughout the system that are utilized by the overwhelming majority of traffic. These highways are Lifi lanes, kept in operation by periodically placed Lifi Array Stations which are used to boost messages from the big Orbital Routers. Lifi lanes are critical to the transportation of Turings and any spacer who wants to receive any kind of news while en route sticks to the Lifi lanes.
The Lifi lanes are anchored at Lagrangian points and shift with the orbit of the planets. They also provide ships with the fastest and most efficient routes between the colonies.
