Leg 2 Map

Basecamp: PSR J1902+0615

Main Waypoints

  • Map References quick reference list, more details below
    • PSR J1926+1648
    • PSR J1915+1009
    • PSR J1902+0615

Main Waypoints Details

  • Map Reference: PSR J1926+1648
    • This is a pulsar over in the “western” part of the galaxy, discovered and studied by Arecibo Radio Telescope around 2008.
  • Map Reference: PSR J1915+1009
    • PSR J1915+1009 is a pulsar in the “western” portion of the galaxy that has been studied due to having “diverse polarization angle swings.”

  • Map Reference: PSR J1902+0615
    • PSR J1902+0615 is a pulsar in the “western” part of the galaxy that was discovered by the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey.

Optional Waypoints

    • PSR J1926+1648
    • PSR J1915+1009
    • HD 174372
    • XTE J1856+053
    • PSR J1902+0615

Optional Waypoints Details

  • Map Reference: HD 174372
    • HD 1774372 is a spectral type B main sequence star. One of the furthest westward non-procedural main sequence stars in the in-game galaxy. It seems by my database that HD 235643 would be the actual furthest westward non-procedural main sequence star in the in-game galaxy.
  • Map Reference: XTE J1856+053
    • This is a low mass X-Ray binary discovered in 1996 and then studied again on and around 28 February 2007 for a new outburst. It is believed based on the low temperature accretion disk that a black hole is the object with the accretion disk.
