Vacoplaz, sometimes nicknamed "werck-roid" and "ass-pop" (asteroid popper), was a high explosive frequently used by miners to destroy asteroids.[1]

Design and Function

Vacoplaz looked like rectangles with rounded corners. The packets had the label "V-A-C" on them, signifying what they were to the observer. They worked with or without ammo, and came with a detonator that would be connected to a central control to have a simultaneous explosion.[1]


Children of the Fleet

By 2 AX, Vacoplaz was in frequent use by space miners.[1]

On one occasion, a large quantity of Vacoplaz was used by terrorists in an attempt to destroy Fleet School.[1]
