Several thousand small bubble habitats of various sizes operate in the upper atmosphere of Venus, mostly inhabited by various tweak clades.

Cygnus Loop

English usage:

The supernova exploded about 15,000 b.c.e. years ago
should be either
The supernova exploded at about 15,000 b.c.e.
or
The supernova exploded about 15,000 years ago

Data:

Relatively recent studies have revised the position of the SNR to be closer (1470 ly), its size to be smaller (down from 150 ly to 90 ly) and the date of the explosion to be more recent: between 5,000 and 8,000 years ago.

I don't think these changes would affect anything else in OA.

Changed as suggested. I picked a more exact date for the event, 6000 years a go, that falls within the range it's currently thought to have happened; scientists in the OA setting would presumably have nailed this down to at least the nearest hundred years if not to a specific year.  Note that from the point of view of our fictional EG authors this still puts it over 15,000 years in the past.

The interplanetary era should be the interplanetary age. 

See top of second paragraph to find the link.

Humanity continued to become increasingly involved with electronic and virtual worlds, and earthbound humanity became increasingly dependent on the vast computer networks that maintained this infrastructure. Huge strides in biotechnology enabled the creation and genetic engineering of new forms of life, and the cladization of the human race into baseline normalssplices (animal-human hybrids), tweaks (genetic engineered superhumans), and digital-interfacing cyborgs. At the same time advances in molecular manufacturing made possible the construction of ultra-strong ultra-light building materials and new lifting bodies, and hence the colonization of space became economically viable for the first time in human history. 

The Interplanetary Era had begun. Explorers, adventurers, idealists, utopians, and eccentrics of all kinds vied with desperate neo-prole gammas hoping to break out of the poverty cycle on Earth. Many faced disaster, but a few lucky ones flourished. New interplanetary superpowers, the Orbital States, Mars, and those based in the various Belt and the gas giant moons arose, and the old superpowers of Earth lost relative power.

Fixed. There are likely quite a few similar bits to fix, given our choice of using 'Interplanetary Age' inside 'Interplanetary Era' in our division of the timeline.
