In Norse mythology, Huginn and Muninn are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring information to the god Odin. Odin is referred to as Hrafnagud meaning “raven-god” due to his association with Huginn and Muninn. Operation Hrafnagud’s Eye was launched by Canonn in response to the perceived unreliability of…
Founded in April 3301 by the eponymous Dr Arcanonn, Canonn Interstellar Research (also referred to simply as The Canonn) is the largest and most active scientific community throughout the Bubble. It all started with the emergence of the now infamous ‘Unknown Artefacts’ – a mystery (or is it a conspiracy?) that continues to dominate the Elite Dangerous universe.
Operating out of Thompson Dock, Varati, our extreme focus and diligence can be attributed to our diet of biscuits, whisky and a penchant for wearing tin foil hats. We take our Science seriously, but we do it without covering ourselves in chalkdust.
Our never-ending mission is not just to uncover the truth about these Unknown Artefacts, but all mysteries throughout the galaxy.
Dr Arcanonn is now helped by the Council who, in turn, only exist because of the members – those brave tinfoil-hat wearers who tirelessly sought the unknown artefacts in those dangerous early days; and who now continue to find exciting science to do, day after day after day after day after day.
Welcome to the 13th Edition of the Galactic Bugle! This week I’ll be using this article to convey a list of the changes going into the Bugle, as well as a few recent happenings around the Human Bubble.
Commanders Syleo and Maligno often found wreckage and degraded emissions on their travels. Recently while sorting through the data that they had collected they came across an extraordinary find of a doomed mission in 3303 that discovered an until now, unknown alien life form. The only image he was able to recover was a frame…
After such a long hiatus, the Biscuit Bugle as back, and ready to make articles again! Though these past few months have been slow in terms of news, I’m back in business again and will try my best to be more regular in my articles.
While all eyes have been on the Thargoid incursions into the bubble, one commander has been busy surveying the areas surrounding Merope to see whether the extent of the Thargoid range has changed.
What he has found so far is that the Sphere does appear to have expanded out beyond 174ly…
The Thargoid Data Gathering project has been a great success. We now have a wealth of data plotting the extent of Thargoid incursions.
However the nature of the Thargoid Threat has changed substantially since they have entered the bubble. Previously we would be able to tell from the threat levels what type of Thargoid vessels we would encounter but now it is not possible to distinguish a Medusa from a dozen scouts using automated equipment alone.
Given the changing nature of the threat, and the success of the previous program, Canonn R&D have upgraded the USS-Survey device to provide some additional features.
This week Irandan was attacked by the Thargoids – this was one of the two stations reported through Eagle Eye last week. The other station, in HIP 21559, was not attacked and we believe this could be related to the numbers of commanders supporting the systems. After the attack the Eagle Eye Unregistered Communications Beacons…
CMDR Madraptor and MWSOG bring you a special edition of Galactic Geologist magazine – Precambrian, a collection of geology from before beyond.
This special edition of Galactic Geologist is dedicated to the early discoveries and early discoverers and within these pages you will find a stunning collection of the Geysers, Fumaroles and Lava Spouts that they have catalogued. Please join CMDR Madraptor in thanking all those who choose to explore the unknown universe and aim to further our knowledge of it and the places we live.
This is the second mission from Ram Tah. It is based around the task of collecting messages from several locations, so is similar to his first mission in some ways, though with important differences.
This mission has not been completed yet, so this guide is a work in progress.
CMDR Madraptor brings you the first edition of Galactic Geologist magazine. Galactic Geologist will bring you up-to-date news of the latest discoveries around the subjects of Organics and Geology within the galaxy. Featured in this issue are an FAQ on Geysers, Fumeroles and Organics; Top 5 Geysers and Top 5 Fumeroles.
In what can only be called a resounding show of support from both the community at large and Canonn members, a project to build and commission the first player group owned Asimov class science vessel Gnosis was completed in May 3303.
While the project was expected to take a week to finish and even had 2 extra massive orders laid on top of it beyond the initial 8 stages, the goal was completed in a little under 3 standard days with an estimated 35 million tonnes of goods delivered by roughly 9,400 commanders.
It is suspected this operation was both one of the largest showing of commanders and fastest completing operations since the fabled Imperial Gold Rush run by Denton Patreus in 3302.
The Canonn Council thanks all that took part and helped us with this proud achievement, and looks forward to bringing the ship and our science to key hotspots around the galaxy.
