On June 4th, 2952, the Crane Expedition team from the Curvature Group set out to the end of Hurston’s Umbra zone and witnessed a spectacular annular eclipse. The team of 12 aboard a single Carrack vessel, "Anya," recorded their experiences and their journey.
From the spirit of Operation Icarus in 2021, when a large group of dedicated explorers reached the Stanton star, this eclipse mission was designed to accomplish its objectives in the most immersive ways possible without excessive overhead. The mission demonstrates a genuine sandbox exploration experience in the current environment.
The mission took off from a carefully picked launch point on an ocean island. After missing out on the first geosynchronous decoupling window, the team finally arrived at the destination after ten and a half hours. The team is currently conducting surveys at the Umbra Focal Point of Hurston and will publish all mission details with a full documentary at https://deepspacecrew.com/blog and on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPEzUOCC_9COTUwx4HA5_Gw.
In the upcoming weeks, Curvature Group, in association with Deep Space Crew and Cornerstone, would like to host public tours of this incredible view.
