Bubblegum worlds

With the new E:D lighting system just around the corner, there’s a few worlds which I want to go and visit with the old lighting system.

I’ve heard stories of fluorescent green and pink gas giants in the depths of space, and I simply have to see these for myself before they’re toned down with the next update.

I’m taking my Asp Explorer “Pathfinder” as a prelude to Distant Worlds II which is happening early next year. I’ve got this loadout, which gives me a decent jump range of 43.78ly laden, oh, and did I mention I’ve already left?

As always, this post is live – the content below reflects the current status of my journey as detailed in the database I’ve got backing these trips. Whether I post detailed updates about the journey as I go is yet to be seen.

Update 2018-11-22: I got caught in a jet cone and destroyed my ship. I’m going to try again, but this might be the end of the feasible mission.
