Space ark

Space ark[1]

Space arks were a type of spaceship that were large enough to evacuate large populations from a planet and then colonize another world.



On the planet Krypton the construction of space arks, or any other type of spacecraft was outlawed after a certain incident involving Jax-Ur.

This made it impossible for Jor-El to construct space arks when Krypton finally did explode, and he was only able to construct a smaller version of a space ark.[2]

When it was learned that a chain reaction was going to destroy Aliana's Homeworld (which it eventually did) a massive space ark was used to bring the entire population of her world to a new planet in the Beta system.[3]
