Following recent acquisitions from the 21st century, concerning how artists of one of the smaller exo-planets in the galaxies (orbiting the star Sol) were grappling with their then contemporary issues, MOSE has continued research. The Balinger Freight Company has continued bringing interesting items back from the Void, and one of these was a crate containing fragments of old servers. On these were some videos* including this short one –
R U Woke 2 Choke
– Air Pollution became an issue as scientists and then the public realised that the internal combustion engine was poisoning their cities.

Here at MOSE curators have working to catalogue the latest delivery of 21st century archival work from the SOL system. Despite some damage due to poor storage this reveals how some artists future-scoped the century – in this case the introduction of new technology to fundamentally edit and change DNA. From genetic tourism – 2045 to Bio engineered young blood 2055 to fishing dogs with gills – 2075.
2045 Genetic tourism facilities colonise redundant office space
2055 Scientist crack code for “young blood”. Huge sales expected. Lifeblood Inc stocks rise 200%
2070 first ‘fishing’ dog with gills as flood waters rise and land engulfed.
The Void continues to provide interesting items as the Balinger Freight Company swings by and robotically picks up tons of items for inspection. codeforward:codebackward is actually reconstituted from pieces that had fallen apart in the pickup process (an occupational hazard in deep space retrieval). MOSE’s experts have examined the pieces that remain, and have concluded provisionally that these ceramic pieces were perhaps once trialled as data storage for longevity and encased in lead for protection. Like many other trials of these types of devices their time came and went – then – destined for the Void.
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!
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
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.
