    Plait's Supernova Remnant

    POI Type: Planetary Nebula
    System ref.: Clookao BB-W e2-20

    Description: PSNR is an hourglass shaped supernova remnant, or planetary nebula respectively, glowing intensely in blue and bright green hues. The glow comes from the hard radiation output of the remnant's central neutron star. The neutron star has an astonishing 2.3 solar masses and is orbited by a number of landable planets. The closest one is nearly 1,500 ls away, though, not enough for scenic tours on its surface. The planetary nebula is named after 21th century astronomer Phil Plait, who contributed heavily to opening up astronomy as a popular science for millions of fans and amateur astronomers. It is unclear, why he was named the 'Bad Astronomer', the reason presumably having been lost over the centuries. But as he would have put it: "The name stuck."

    First discovery goes to Cmdr Bacon Sarnie.

    POI type: Planetary nebula
    POI Name: Kadenyuk Nebula
    GalMap Ref: Eok Pruae SZ-P e5-1569

    Blue planetary nebula located in 6k light years from Sagittarius A*. Object is named for Leonid Kadenyuk (1951-2018) - the first astronaut of independent Ukraine. He flew on NASA's Space Shuttle Columbia in 1997 as part of the international mission STS-87. Nebula contains small black hole and A-class star on far orbit, it was found by CMDR AlexBrentnall on Jun 3, 2016, but fully scanned only by CMDR GerUA during the Autumn Odyssey expedition.

    System Name: Gravitas
    System Location: GRU PHRUA EW-W F1-251

    Description: A system Containing a black hole and 4 neutron stars that would undoubtedly create Gravitational waves from all the objects in the system, hence the name "Gravitas" or Gravity in Latin.

    New Region: Exteriores Australis

    Based on posts #3122-3125 and posts #3132-3134, as well as our own visual scanning of increased star density in the in game galmap, the GMP team has decided to add Exteriores Australis as a new region.


    The apparent increased star density visible in the EDD star map here below, is not only an artifact of increased CMDR activity in this region. The white lines indicate an area where stellar density increases noticeably in the in game galmap as well:

    Coordinates for the points above:
    A: 11000 / 0 / -16500
    B: 11800 / 0 / -16300
    C: 12600 / 0 / -15600
    D: 11600 / 0 / -15600
    E: 11100 / 0 / -16000

    New map entry:

    Exteriores Australis is a small region (roughly 1500 x 600 LY) of increased stellar density situated along the very perimeter of the galactic disc. Succesfully navigating this region is key to reaching Amundsen's Star and the furthest southern reaches of the Milky Way.

    In the early days of exploration (before engineering and jumponium) reaching Exteriores Australis was a feat in itself, due to the low star density in the crossing of the Outer Arm Vacuus.


    The map poster has been updated to show the new region:

    Poi Name: Szilard Leo Nebula
    Poi Type: Planetary Nebula
    Nebula center system: Hypuejaa RT-Q e5-83

    Description: this is a supernova remnant very special blue glowing nebula, looks like two blue buble hitting eachother. More dark blue then other nebulas with same neutron star in core. The main system contains one neutron star and one G5 star with 3 landable planet arround. Near to the nebula 1ly have another system with very nice view of the nebula.

    Name of the nebula :
    Szilard Leo born in February 11, 1898 died in May 30, 1964 was a Hungarian-German-American physicist and inventor. He conceived the nuclear chain reaction in 1933, patented the idea of a nuclear reactor with Enrico Fermi in 1934, and in late 1939 wrote the letter for Albert Einstein's signature that resulted in the Manhattan Project that built the atomic bomb. He publicly sounded the alarm against the possible development of salted thermonuclear bombs, a new kind of nuclear weapon that might annihilate mankind. Because of the form of the nebula i think his name is very perfect for it.

    First discovered: Cmdr Killosopher , want to add to EDSM Galactic Map
