 Firstly, there are still a rare handful of survivors from Earth. ​ Before the war, scientists on earth developed an [[life extension|anagathic treatment]] called UAG-7 which halted the aging process and gave the subject effectively unlimited life span.  Only the elites received this treatment, and most of them perished in the war, but a few escaped, and at least one human survivor is known to still be around. ​ There may be one or two others, but, if so, they are keeping a low profile. Firstly, there are still a rare handful of survivors from Earth. ​ Before the war, scientists on earth developed an [[life extension|anagathic treatment]] called UAG-7 which halted the aging process and gave the subject effectively unlimited life span.  Only the elites received this treatment, and most of them perished in the war, but a few escaped, and at least one human survivor is known to still be around. ​ There may be one or two others, but, if so, they are keeping a low profile.

 Thirdly, there are the flatlanders. ​ As some belters have migrated to high-gravity colony worlds (and even Luna and Mars seem like high gravity to a belter), some have chosen to have their children modified so they come out with a pair of legs and feet instead of the usual belter'​s lower pair of arms and hands. ​ Although not technically pure humans, they generally look human and retain most of the same human-like traits as other belters. ​ They are still uncommon enough in recom space to prompt perked-up ears and questions, and they are known colloquially as "​flatlanders"​. Thirdly, there are the flatlanders. ​ As some belters have migrated to high-gravity colony worlds (and even Luna and Mars seem like high gravity to a belter), some have chosen to have their children modified so they come out with a pair of legs and feet instead of the usual belter'​s lower pair of arms and hands. ​ Although not technically pure humans, they generally look human and retain most of the same human-like traits as other belters. ​ They are still uncommon enough in recom space to prompt perked-up ears and questions, and they are known colloquially as "​flatlanders"​.
