3rd Rock Grid was founded as an OpenSim Grid in 2007 by Terry Ford — aka Butch Arnold. By 2008 it had over 1200 users. It was briefly offline at the end of 2008 and ownership was transferred to another resident. 3rd Rock Grid has been built largely with volunteer help from many individuals, and without their help and contributions our world would not exist. In addition to the website there is also a Facebook group for 3rd Rock.There are many SIMS in 3rd Rock and not all are online all the time, but there are many things to see and. New arrivals go to the community centre where they'll find many freebies available for use. UFS Astraios is a Star Trek fan run operation with space docks, training facilities and role playing. The Linda Kellie City also has many freebies which you can copy and use. The Digit Ski Lift gives a panoramic view of some of the mainland, and Rob's is often the venue for dancing and music.
