    Nope, there is always a longer jet which is what people use for getting the FSD boost. You can always tell that even when faced up close to a neutron star.

    As with the star orbit that might be true, didn't think of it that way, but either way it's still 4 ls away which out of 20,000+ systems I've discovered, it was unusual to see. I did however find another one with a star about 10 ls away, but the jets weren't as violent, but I discover a lot of neutron stars around the galaxy and never saw anything like this (though maybe it is a lot more common and I've just had bad luck)...

    Yep, I think this is it, I've seen quite a few of such systems. If you find a landable body so close to the neutron star, now that is a very rare find (also in my opinion jets are exactly same length).

    Changing subject I have a photo for Bleae Aewsy GV-X d1-19 https://www.edsm.net/en/system/id/27...ewsy+IY-N+b9-1

    AFAIK both cones can be used to overcharge the FSD.

    They should be the same length. I just did a test, had a NS with one long and one short. Fueled in the long one, and flew away, turned around and went around the star to the other arm, which now looked longer than the first one, and could boost there too.

    The length is an illusion when the longer arm is on your side of the exclusion zone, and that's why you take the "longer" one so you don't crash into the XZ by accident.

    Depending on speed and size of the NS arms, I have at times gone straight for the "short" arm to boost (while avoiding XZ) without problem.

    A message for Galactic Mapping Project administrators :

    The Perseus Survey is a group of cartographer who goes on a mission of recognition and analysis of the sectors below :

    1 - Via Maris (Bubble Nebula)
    2 - The Perseus Crags
    3 - The Hyponia Scar
    4 - The Outer Arm Rift
    5 - Wagar's Reach
    6 - Ishtar (Zephyrus)
    7 - Orio-Persean Conflux
    8 - The Anthor Patch

    We are currently 20 commanders. This number is likely to change significantly in the coming days. We begin the investigations on January 14, 3304 and we think to finish this research in March 3304.
    We would like to be referenced for the Galactic Mapping Project if it is possible.

    We are established on the Deep Space Network Discord : https://discord.gg/Hw6SvH2
    Thank you.

    Intra-galactic Neutron Loop Mapping Expedition

    Hello, this is Commander Scott 'Flipflops' Harvell, in my White Pharaoh Lakon ASP Explorer, "Ol' Reliable".

    I am currently underway on a solo expedition to map out a full-circle Neutron Highway around the galaxy.

    I started off from Jameson Memorial on Dec. 22, 3303 out towards the Lin Shu Hollow where, while studying the Galaxy Map, I found a large concentration of Neutron and White Dwarf stars below the Galactic Plane, around -1000. Number of jumps to target, 183. Reviewing the route, only the last 17 jumps were along a Neutron Highway. Finally, once I reached my destination system: Chamio YM-Q d6-6, I decided to continue on and see just how far I can take a Neutron Highway around the Galaxy, to eventually land at the 3/4 mark, Colonia. From Colonia, I will attempt to complete the loop at the very first chain of Neutron Stars I reached, starting with system Blaa Dryou PT-R d4-13; Unofficially, the start of the Intra-galactic Neutron Loop. I have planned a detour from the loop to visit Beagle's Point, and if possible, connect a Neutron Highway from the IgNL towards Beagle's Point.

    I have no deadline to finish this project by, nor do I plan to make a deadline. Some may ask, "Why? What is the point or purpose?" My answer: Why not? It may not be the most practical thing to do but, who cares? How often can you say that you were the first captain to map out a Neutron Highway that circumvents the entire galaxy. The point is to say that I did it, it is about personal achievement and my love for exploration, and giving myself a challenge and overcoming that challenge.

    Please, feel free to follow my progress on the expedition through my EDSM profile: https://www.edsm.net/en/user/travel-...cmdr/Flipflops.
    Alos, I have created a new thread for this expedition here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...ing-Expedition. I will be posting updates on this thread as the expedition goes on.

    Stay true, and let the Dawn of Exploration continue for years to come!

    Commander Flipflops signing off.

    Smile Fungus!

    Suggested Name: Ravenfield Patch

    Type: Organic Features

    Nebula: Floalt AA-A H110

    System: Floalt KU-E D12-218

    Planet: 1 A

    Coordinates: 66.3917, 84.1447

    This depression, tucked away in a largely uncharted nebula a few dozen hyperjumps from the Polo Harbour deep space highway port, is located on a moon orbiting a class III gas giant around an F class white star. The conditions on the planet, with its present volcanism and a surface temperature of around 364 Kelvin, were ideal for such fungal life to grow and thrive. CMDR Nolanus Raven had scouted this system as a target for such life, and after an extensive search was able to locate this large patch of growth.

    The site is quite large and contains countless mounds of fungus, which would be an ideal location for further study of such strange life forms.

    I'd like to submit a correction:

    The description for Station X lists the Crab Pulsar as the first pulsar discovered by Dame Bell. LGM-1 was the first one she discovered. The Crab Pulsar followed a year later, but Bell did go on record saying a pilot told her that she did notice it flashing when she had looked at the nebula in the 50s.

    Good to know, all the docs and stuff for Neutron jumping always had the long arm thing stated so just assumed that was how it was. I never bothered to actually do much other than get my FSD boost and leave when faced with Neutron stars so didn't think to actually measure it or not...

    Thanks . I've clarified the description text.

    Found a green system in the east, in the Centaurus Reach.

    CMDR Sapporo

    Name...? I'll let someone else decide.

    Also contains a terraformable HMC, a large water world and a water giant!

    System Name: Marta's Pulsars

    Type: Pulsar

    In-game reference: PSR J0737-3039A

    Description: The first binary pulsar system to be discovered by humanity (but not the first binary neutron star system), it provided an unprecedented test of the Theory of General Relativity. Further investigations revealed PSR J0737-3039A contained another neutron star and a black hole in the system as well. PSR J0737-3039B contains several gas giants but nothing else of note, and is easily missed by explorers due to the galactic map covering it up with the A component.

    The pulsar pair was discovered by Italian astronomer Marta Burgay in 2003 using the Parkes Observatory's main radio telescope in Australia.
