Martian consumer culture

'Omegendorph': drug designed in Acheron by Vlad Taneev's medical group in the 2030-2040s. A synthetic mix of all the endorphins and opiates found in the brain's natural chemistry processed into capsules. Provide an analgesic effect and a sensation of well-being, the best feel-good drug imaginable.

Timeslip: a convention so that a Martian day, which lasts that much longer than a Terran day, can be timed with the 24-hour Terran system. Named after Philip K. Dick's novel "The Martian Time-Slip" (1964).

Descriptions from here.
