New finds freshly delivered to MOSE from X394 have included a number of podlike pieces, somehow reflecting a growth stasis due to desiccation or a process yet to be discovered. Tests have revealed that there is some biofauna link with the material. It is unknown whether the soft pale version is a due to its juvenile or senescent status. The rough external surface contrasts with the smooth darker interior and further research into associated finds might reveal interior forms that have left the pods.
The fifth planet in orbit round red dwarf X394 is home to artefacts that coincide in colour with most of the planet’s surface – although their entrances glow with gold rims. Coming in differing sizes we have yet to determine whether they are biological in origin. The differing size indicates a growth from juvenile onwards, they could have been fossilised during one of the known cold periods. Some of them contain pieces of other material manifestations. The inhabitants of the planet are recent posthuman colonists and discovered these objects hidden in caves they explored after their first wave of settlement.
In view of the previous collaboration between MOSE and Fringe Arts Bath we are again loaning some works to the event. The Balinger Freight Corporation will be delivering two items for their upcoming exhibition Hide and Seek on a small planet orbiting the star Sol. The Collection and Magnified Listening.
Posthuman technology…one of the most important aids to space exploration and one of the fastest growing procedures of choice during the 3030s. Close up (magnified 100 times) of the hearing implants that enabled people to hear 10 times more clearly. Many found the cacophony of sound too much to bear but had to wait ten years before the implant dissolved away.
The Museum of Space Exploration has delivered a collection of artefacts from the planet Nujema to The Museum of Everything on permanent loan*. This will ensure that the artefacts, and MOSE’s mission, will have the largest possible audience in the wide area that is covered by the Itinerant Museum of Everything.
*Delivered by our sponsor the Balinger Freight Corporation – Logistics Protection
Thanks to the Balinger Freight Corporation who have given MOSE the latest addition to its collections – a four drawer wooden chest containing pieces of high specification, ceramic matrix composites. Used in some of the very first warp drives they could withstand temperature ranges from between minus 250 degrees C to 3000 degrees C. One of the founders of the Corporation had spent years amassing the objects and similar retro spaceship parts. These he would keep in chests and drawers dating from early 1900s and spend time ensuring that the drawers worked perfectly, that the polish remained smooth, and that he could find a space for storing the redundant small pieces of precision engineering that the Corporation would bring back from their journeys to distant galaxies.
