This.

On the topic of crazy worlds that CMDR Braxton Doyle has been finding, I thought I’d share this one that I found today, after doing a bit more exploration and less racing to Jaques:

The first thing that comes to my attention is the ammonia world next to the water world – worth a look I think. The water world checks out, and the water world… wait, didn’t I just say ammonia and water?

Anyway, I decided I’d go looking for Vanadium on Boeph DG-T C18-19 A 1, and after rolling the SRV a couple of times I came across this (as further proof for CMDR Braxton Doyle that this happens regularly):

Anyway, continuing the journey gave me the usual collection of stunning views, and an L-class that that have become something of a rarity again.

I landed on another planet to finish the day off, which was very bright to the point I couldn’t really see changes in the terrain. Looking up through the sunroof of the SRV shows how close we are to the star though.

And… to prove a point…

When I first set out, I predicted 1360 jumps as the best-case for Jaques, and today I’ve passed that, but I’m not too far off now. I reckon another three sessions or so and I should arrive!
