The Federal Intelligence Agency has discovered that a nuclear weapon has been taken from an unregistered outpost.
Senior Agent Rochelle Karim made the following statement:
“Further examination of the outpost discovered last week confirms that it was home to unlicensed nuclear research. Personnel at the site were constructing a portable fusion warhead codenamed the Lucifer Device.”
“One operational prototype was produced, but we have failed to locate it. Our assumption is that whoever invaded the base now possesses a movable bomb with a 300 megaton yield – enough to destroy an entire city.”
“This investigation is a top priority and we are exploring all available leads.”
The Ambrose Foundation has confirmed that Lady Talitha Ambrose is missing, and that all of its assets have been lost.
Baroness Oksana Ambrose, head of the institution, told the media:
“Everything we own has been transferred from our accounts to who knows where. Emergency funds are being used to settle debts and pay staff, but essentially the Ambrose Foundation is ruined.”
“I can only assume that vicious criminals have kidnapped Lady Talitha and tortured her into surrendering her inheritance.”
“I have used the last of our reserves to hire the Wallglass Investigations Agency. I pray that they can locate and rescue my beloved daughter.”
A campaign from the Holloway Bioscience Institute to build a xenological research centre has concluded successfully.
Chief researcher Dr Roy Casimir told the media:
“Thanks to Nahuaru Crimson Bridge Int we now have sufficient materials to build a planetary outpost where our scientists can study lifeforms identified by the galactic community.”
“We are also grateful for the exploration data provided by many pilots, which will help us create a new research catalogue.”
Pilots who took part in the campaign can now collect their rewards from Williams Vision in the Nahuaru system.
The Atlas Research Group has urgently requested military materials to increase security in the Merope system.
Defence Director Jacob Chowdhury said:
“The Thargoid presence throughout the Pleiades Nebula continues to be a major threat. To reassure the public, Atlas is investing in improved defences for the Merope system.”
“Traders are invited to deliver Reactive Armour and Military Grade Fabrics to Reed's Rest. To help protect incoming ships from criminal elements, we have also allocated bounties to all wanted vessels in the system.”
The initiative begins on the 14th of February 3305 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.
Matthew Piers Watt Boulton of Tew Park and Haseley Court, also believed to have been published additionally under the pseudonym M.P.W. Bolton (22 September 1820 – 30 June 1894), was a British classicist, elected member of the UK's Metaphysical Society, an amateur scientist and an inventor, best known for his invention of the aileron, a primary aeronautical flight control device. He patented the aileron in 1868, some 36 years before it was first employed in manned flight by Robert Esnault-Pelterie in 1904.
Boulton was the son of Matthew Robinson Boulton, and as well the grandson of Matthew Boulton, who founded the Soho Manufactory and the Soho Mint. His grandfather also co-founded the Soho Foundry with James Watt, which employed steam engines of the latter's design. Born into a family of significant wealth and means, M.P.W. was broadly educated in the classics, philosophy and sciences, subsequently becoming well versed in steam engine design, and then transferring his interest to the basic conceptual designs of jet propulsion and rocket motors. However, whatever personal interest he held in the foundry's operation and the coinage mint he inherited from his father soon waned, and he subsequently closed and sold the mint facility in 1850. Thereafter he conducted numerous studies, wrote a wide variety of papers and earned a number of patents, including for an aileron flight control system, various types of motive power engines and their components such as propellers and pumps, plus other works on solar heat, photography and more.
