I had made decent progress mapping the region throughout this afternoon when just after dinner I failed to properly read the gravity of a planet I was landing on in order to investigate a geological signal source. I knew as I descended towards the surface that it was a high gravity planet. Unfortunately due to the poor design of the Anaconda's HUD I couldn't quite clearly see the number. I orientated myself skyward and believed that the descent would level off to a more manageable degree. At around 800 meters I could see that I would hit the ground so I hit the boost to force my ship up. This was successful as I soon stopped falling and began to climb. I then leveled myself off again and began turning so I was facing the signal source once again. It was at this point that my luck had run out. During the turn I can only surmise that I dipped my nose back toward the ground and began falling again. This combined with a terrain change caused me to slide into the inward side of a crater. I rolled the ship, collapsing the shields and suffering significant hull damage in the process. The only good news was that my speed more or less dropped to a near stop and the collision bounced me high enough from the nearby terrain that I was able to regain control of the ship and regenerate my shields prior to landing.
Regardless of my misfortune this evening I did manage to discover 19 systems, a few of which contained water worlds and/or new codex entries. Several of the systems contained terraformable planets, which I'm sure Universal Cartographics will pay out nicely for.
Sadly, due to my own stupidity, tomorrow I must begin heading back to LP 804-27 in order to make repairs. Hopefully I will remember today's error as I head back since I will likely be taking a different route back from the one I took to get out here. Perhaps I will inquire with the Fuel Rats to see if the offer repairs as well.
