>From: Senior Coordinator
We can't relate to other people, who see space as only a vast empty void, with the occasional gas particles, stars, and planets to interrupt the nothingness. Empty space and the objects contained in it are as intimately related as a back and a front. You don't get one without the other. Without the space between...
A new beginning.
I've been out of the loop too long. Minding my own business and chasing the next payout. But with the current hostilities between the federation and empire, I think it's time to get involved. Countless lives have been lost in the pursuit of profit, systems have been swept into the fold, their governments and independence lost to the greed.
I will join the alliance and join a group to fight back....
Sorting out the Fleet.
This is taking a while.
With the Billion Credit cash injection courtesy of Mic Turner (founder of the Alliance) I have finally been able to acquire a decent fleet after two years in the cockpit. Flipping one system out in the California Nebula created a BGS edge case that prints money - if youre Alliance friendly.
But with a large fleet comes some chores. No point haveing a quick little racer...
Alliance Operations in the California Nebula
All quiet on the rimward front.
Once Turner Research Group were governing Darwin. I returned to the bubble with my half billion paycheck and sorted out my Fleet. In addition to the relatively new Anaconda "Turner's Call" and stopping in at Alioth to buy an Asp (I had to sell the Green Dream to buy the 'Conda); I bought a T-9 (the Suzy Thunda)...

More about Fungus in Space
ISS Science for Everyone
Growth and Survival of Coloured Fungi in Space-A (CFS-A) determines the effect of microgravity and cosmic radiation on the growth and survival of coloured fungi species. Science Results for Everyone This experiment showed that fungi can grow inside the space station and could decompose food and other organic materials in humid conditions. After exposure to air growth stopped,...
Astronauts and their hair
So Frontier, in their wisdom, have decided that long hair is too hard.
And a chorus of agreement has risen from the cheap seats:
"Long hair wouldn't work in space."
"It would get caught in your helmet."
Unfortunately every space agency that actually puts people into space seems to have missed the memo.
Even NASA - who have a protocol for everything,...
The Jasmina Halsey saga.
Community Goal: The Search for Starship One
28 JAN 3302
In May 3301, the personal vessel of the Federal president, Starship One, disappeared en route to the Azaleach system. An investigation was promptly launched, but the fate of the vessel and her crew, which included then-president Jasmina Halsey, could not be conclusively determined. In a statement released earlier today, Federal President...
Some Rebuys sting more than others.
I knew it was trouble.
I should have left when I heard the scan.
I was tired. I hadn't got the right equipment.
It's been interesting heading out halfway to the Heart and Soul Nebula.
Figured a way to optimise my route through NGC 7822 so I'm just grabbing black holes and other ripe low hanging fruit. You can make eddb.io list all the compact stars in a region and then sort...
