Freelance Report: New Galactic Cooperative Denounces Violence in Neits

As Federal and Imperial factions continue to fight for control of the Neits system, the New Galactic Cooperative of Worlds has issued a statement denouncing the violence. GalCop's representative, Jahena Yar Savor, addressed both sides of the conflict, and appealed for an end to hostilities in the spirit of cooperation and unity.

"Our differences must not be settled through violence," said Savor. "This conflict may have begun because of ideals, but it has led to very real damage. Until both sides set aside their differences and their weapons, the citizens and business interests of Neits will continue to suffer."

Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

In this weekly digest the latest GalNet data is compiled to show the economic states for a short list of minor factions and the star systems they inhabit.
The following minor factions are currently enjoying an economic boom:Boom is usually the result of consistent trade profit and completed trade contracts. When a faction experiences a boom, the wealth of the system it controls temporarily increases and trade missions completed in the system have double the effect on influence. The faction's influence may also increase. Booms typically last until they naturally expire.

These minor factions are suffering an economic bust:When a faction experiences a bust, the wealth of the system it controls is temporarily reduced and the faction's influence is temporarily diminished. Trade actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust typically has to run its course before ending.

Freelance Report: Growing Demand for Halsey's Exploration Data

A demonstration was held today at Leoniceno Orbital in Azaleach calling for the immediate release of all information submitted in response to former Federal president Jasmina Halsey's appeal for exploration data.

"Something isn't right here," said one of the demonstrators. "Mountains of data were submitted, and within two days they were able to review it thoroughly enough to declare there was absolutely nothing of interest? This reeks of a cover up."

Speakers at the rally demanded that the Azaleach Partnership, to which the information was submitted, release the data so its findings could be independently verified.

"Science relies on openness, collaboration and peer review," argued one speaker. "It's an integral part of the process. Any conclusions based on secret data should be treated with suspicion."

Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report

Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:Expansions occur when a minor faction reaches a sufficient level of influence and there is a populated system within striking distance. Expansion is costly, so when a faction expands, the wealth and development level of the system it controls are temporarily reduced.

Galactic News: Malfunctioning Starports Restored with Meta-Alloys

Recent reports indicate that a number of starports forced to suspend services due to Unknown-Artefact related interference have been restored to normality through the application of meta-alloys. Ackerman Market in Eravate, Gabriel Enterprise in Harma, Weyn Dock in 64 Arietis and Onnes Gateway in LFT 37 are all now reported to be fully operational.

This development – a testament to the hard work of the pilots who have delivered meta-alloys to the affected stations – will no doubt bring hope to those still affected by the technological plague.

The starports currently closed as a result of Unknown-Artefact related interference are:

Lave Station, Lave

Ising Dock, 109 Piscium

Fozard Dock, HIP 19934

Irens Dock, Manite

von Bellingshausen Port, Almar

Haack Gateway, Halbangaay

Gurragchaa Gateway, Warkushanui

Korolyov Hub, Arawere

Lobachevsky Outpost, Pic Tok

Carter Port, Rhea

Meanwhile, the following starports continue to experience technical issues:

Alexander Freeport, HIP 18843

Bloch Vision, Loperada

Love Ring, Evejitaka

Robigo Mines, Robigo

Saunders's Dive, Wolf 1301

Skvortsov Orbital, 63 G. Capricorni

Kooi Gateway, HIP 93377

Jaques Station, Gliese 1269

From the past

4 billion years ago, the Sun was cooler than it was today, but much more active. Earth's weaker magnetosphere allowed particles from solar flares to seep into the atmosphere, contributing to the creation of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide.
When a powerful "superflare" from the sun scoured the solar system more than 1,200 years ago, it had little effect on Earth's inhabitants — but today's astronauts wouldn't be so lucky.
Our sun's adolescence was stormy—and new evidence shows that these tempests may have been just the key to seeding life as we know it.
NASA's first spacecraft designed to return a piece of an asteroid to Earth arrived Friday at Kennedy Space Center to begin final preparations for a September launch.
The Global Precipitation Measurement Core Observatory (GPM) tunes a constellation of satellites "to one note, like an oboe tuning an orchestra," according to NASA.
Mysterious high-rise clouds seen appearing suddenly in the martian atmosphere on a handful of occasions may be linked to space weather, say Mars Express scientists.
