So here I am visiting the Fine Ring Nebula, which is a little underwhelming to be honest.
But apparently I’m only 900 ly from HR 6164, which is a well known system known as The View. Sounds good! On arrival my retinas are nearly burned off by this massive blue-white supergiant.
Holy crap! So many ringed planets. This one has a tourist beacon called “The View”. Let’s go visit!
I forget that it has a gravity 3.3x that of Earth, and was infamous during the Distant Worlds 2 expedition for cratering lots of ships. Fortunately I am just too good and land without a hitch. Ok, it lives up to its name.
But of course I can’t ignore that neutron star over there! Let’s go check it out…
One does not simply fly into a neutron star. Gravitational forces in the plumes will rip you apart, and holy heck! There’s a tourist installation riiiiight in there. Who would build in such a crazy place?
These lunatics apparently. So cool.
I’m getting major The Black Hole vibes from this.
But before I leave this party, there’s a freakin’ actual black hole inbetween the plumes!
So damn cool.
