Out from the Void

rustweb

Meanwhile space exploration continues into new galaxies . New as this is one of the few galaxies to be found in a void that is an almost empty space. Galaxy 7 (0f 17) in the Great Void has been found to have stars with exoplanets of different sizes. One, with a relatively weak gravity, turned out to be covered in what could be described as a vast waste dump of different objects. Robotic grabbers picked up a selection. MOSE is lucky to have been sent one of these mystery objects for its collection. We are not sure whether the rust existed before it was packed up for transit or whether some oxygen and damp has seeped into the package since.

Faulty devices…beware!

The Balinger Freight Company has delivered a number of cone ‘devices’ to MOSE on a shuttle returning from an area near the red dwarf system that includes the planet X394.

This is a worrying development as these devices have been sold by rogue traders – with the premise that they can detect some of the mysterious poisons that exist in deep space. They have since been tested thoroughly by our bio-security laboratories – and they have reported that the colouring of these objects has merely changed as they reacted to less harmful substances. Beware!

Dark works glow with interest

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.

Bequest from Balinger Freight Corporation

The Collection

The Collection

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.

EXO 159 – Robot testing

Biofauna closeBiofaunaOur newly donated robot R. Molto has been tested for its humanoid critical functions. R Molto is a humaniform type but there seems to be some damage and extensive metal degradation. It was shown this (fully sealed) suspected piece of bio-fauna from EXO159. Its comments were: “An object covered with security film first used in 3326. It has a native tongue that resists codification common to verbal communication and bridges phenomenal and conceptual dimensions”.

EXO159 – new finds

The robot drone exploring EXO159 picked up a series of objects, laid out in various patterns. Initial reports from the post human scientific crew of the mission suggest that there is some ambivalence as to whether the turquoise colouring is due to deposition of the gas surrounding the planet or is part of a continuing sublimation to create the gas.

Waiting: for the beginning

Recently found texts hidden among old papers suggest how there may have been a purpose for the numerous clay artefacts found on the planet Nujema. Experts have followed diagrams and produced an idea of how these may have been placed.
