TolaGarf’s Junkyard

System name

Kojeara

Distance to waypoint

3,157.8LY

Description

After just over 66k LY, arrival in the Kojeara system marks the official end to the Lost Souls 2 Expedition. On behalf of The Fatherhood, we’d like to thank each and every one of you for joining us on this expedition, and making it such a success!

Journey’s End Party

To mark the end of the expedition, we plan to host a party for all those able to attend. The party will be held on Sunday 15th March, and will be hosted in the vicinity of Tolagarf’s Junkyard. Timings will be announced on the Discord server nearer the way.

Golden Chalice Nebula

System name

Oephaif ST-M b34-175

Distance to waypoint

2,434.1LY

Description

One side of this nebula is dark and the other has red-green colours that look golden from the right angle, hence the name. To one side of this nebula can be found a dense patch of brown and red dwarf stars but there are enough scoopable stars for it not to present any real hazard.

The Golden Chalice Nebula is immense. Coming in from the direction of Candy Floss and Thunderclap nebulas, the Golden Chalice shows its reddish and green hues. Occasionally, if the lighting angle is right, these colors change to a deep golden yellow. Only two stars in habit this system, roughly 70K Ls apart. While the glare will limit the vista’s of the nebula cloud, great visual of it are garnered by traveling the distance between them.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Biological [5] on planet ABCD 3 A in the Oephaif QY-S e3-120 system.

POI’s Along the Way

Bonfire Nebula – Like any good bonfire at a festival, this huge nebula can be seen from a very long distance away and provides a spectacular backdrop and a beacon to navigate in the region. Its interior is densely packed with stars and home to a sky full of red and orange colours, with the bright Galactic Core obscured from sight.

The Aquarium – A Planetary Nebula with a Black Hole at its heart, and several planets orbiting an A-class star 147K Ls away. The only remarkable feature is the number of Nebulae visible from here and giving the system the look of being inside an aquarium, hence the name.

Elmo’s Highway

System name

Boesky AA-A g89

Distance to waypoint

3,541.3LY

Description

A system containing one Black Hole together with five Neutron Stars. It is a scenic but very hazzardous system to visit due to the risk of damage from multiple Neutron Star tails.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Geological [12] on planet C4 in the Boesky QO-Z D664 system.

POI’s Along the Way

“Süßes Fräulein” (Stellar Forge) – A huge sector with a very high-number of white, blue-white and blue stars accompanied by uncountable T-Tauri-Stars making it quite a sight for any explorer approaching the Core from the 1st Quadrant regions. The sector is full of habitable worlds and in its upper regions contains many non-sequence-stars. Due to the high value of such stars a survey can prove a lucrative undertaking once the data is sold at Universal Cartographics. Beautiful nebulae can be found within this sector, too.

Arcadian Lights – A small hourglass-shaped planetary nebula that was created after a supernova blast several thousand years ago. The central star collapsed into a neutron star of some 2.1 solar masses and left behind a number of ringed brown dwarfs in more or less stable orbits. The system has no landable planets but the view from close neighbouring star systems is amazing. 

Blue Ink in Pink – A beautiful little nebula with a black hole in its heart. Looking at it from the right angle it looks like a few droplets of blue ink had just been dropped into pink ink and are now blossoming and slowly disipating and mixing with the pink. Frozen in eternity at just the right moment. More surprising is that this little gem lies on the way from Sol to the Colonia domain and was only ever visited by two comanders before.

Plait’s Supernova Remnant

System name

Clookao BB-W e2-20

Distance to waypoint

3,347.0LY

Description

PSNR is an hourglass shaped supernova remnant, or planetary nebula respectively, glowing intensely in blue and bright green hues. The glow comes from the hard radiation output of the remnant’s central neutron star. The neutron star has an astonishing 2.3 solar masses and is orbited by a number of landable planets. The closest one is nearly 1,500 ls away, though, not enough for scenic tours on its surface. The planetary nebula is named after 21th century astronomer Phil Plait, who contributed heavily to opening up astronomy as a popular science for millions of fans and amateur astronomers. It is unclear, why he was named the ‘Bad Astronomer’, the reason presumably having been lost over the centuries. But as he would have put it: “The name stuck.”

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Geological [38] on planet 3A in the Clookao PY-S B23-1 system.

POI’s Along the Way

Gatehouse Nebula – Positioned directly above an easy crossing point to the Orion-Cygnus Arm from the core regions and 650LY above the Galactic Plane, this large nebula (80 x 110 x 80LY) both marks the crossing point and provides a good view of the approach to the core and the spiral arms beyond. Whether it is watching more the approach from the core or protecting it from foes approaching from the spiral arms is anyone’s guess! It is not devoid of life itself, housing an Ammonia World that requires some determination to reach, being more than half a million LS from the jump-in point (EODGOSLY TL-S C5-3 C5). There is also an Earth-like World just outside the nebula, its ‘Sentry’ in a sense (EODGOSLY BY-O C7-0 C3).

V1343 Aquilae – V1343 Aquilae is a so-called microquasar and consists of a central black hole of appr. 16 solar masses and an orbiting A-type star.

The central black hole (named SS 433) consumes the companion star which rapidly loses mass into an accretion disc formed around the SS 433. The accretion disc is subject to extreme heating as it spirals into the primary and this heating causes the accretion disc to give off intense X-rays and opposing jets of hot hydrogen along the axis of rotation, above and below the plane of the accretion disc.

Precipice

System name

Flyai Eaescs AA-A h46

Distance to waypoint

4,766.0LY

Description

Precipice is an eerie place, being located some 1,200 light years below the galactic plane. It consists of no less than four black holes and a number of low mass stars and brown dwarfs, giving the system only the dimmest illumination. The two heaviest black holes are already in a death dance more light seconds away, and they have also pulled in a number of planetary bodies very close to their embrace. The closest planet orbits them very rapidly at a mere four light seconds, although sadly it’s not a landable body.

Expedition Base Camp

The base camp for this waypoint will be Surface signal: Geological [1] on planet D 1 b a. Enjoy the 164kls supercruise!

POI’s Along the Way

Ear of Orion – Smallish blue/grey nebula with black bar, this nebula on the Orion-Cygnus Arm of the Milky Way resembles a giant ear

Chrysanthemum Nebula – Glowing with pink and mauve, this circular nebula resembles a Chrysanthemum when approached from the rim. At approximately 75 LY across, this system encompasses multiple stars, almost entirely class M. At 15,600 LY from Sol, this distant nebula is in a rarely travelled region (source).

Explorer’s Web – Orbiting two black holes and two cool stars, class K and Y, a ringed neutron star extends like a spiders web to catch any unwary explorers. Extending nearly 3 million KM from the neutron star and at 5400 LS away, the massive rocky ring system disappears in the void. Perpindicular to the main stars, travel to this neutron star must be performed with caution as the entire disk is a collision risk. Adding to this, the disk sits in line with the galactic plane, preventing even that dim light from being used to navigate the rocky ring. Explorer beware approaching this neutron star!
