The Solar 1 is a rocketship developed on Earth-5106 a world where space exploration and travel blossomed in the 1950s. It was constructed sometime prior to the year 2000 although the details of its development are unknown. It is the primary vehicle used by Jet Dixon and the Space Squadron peace keeping force. Its rockets allow the ship to reach escape velocity and travel at speeds that can cover interplanetary distances. The full extent of its flight capabilities and life support systems and the limitations thereof are unknown. The Solar 1's primary defense are two cannons on the nose of the rocket that fire "atomic bullets".
