Distant Screws II: Expedition for Evelyn

Sponsoring body: Loose Screws podcast, and the Loose Screws Network faction

Voyage Embark Date: Jan 12 3307

Rendezvous at Evelyn’s Light: Feb 26, 3307

Voyage Ticket Expiration: May 15, 3307

Loose Screws Podcast (and discord community) and the Loose Screws Network are heading out into the black once again to reach Evelyn’s Light! We will discover what the young scientist has left for us to discover in the deep reaches of space!

We face the future together with Evelyn's Light as our guide. With her spirit at our backs showing us that unquenchable spirit of adventure and strength are the only way forward for us all. Together we will triumph and boldly go where no one has gone before! (Sorry about that TM violation.)

Join us as we celebrate one of the greatest games ever to grace an electron, with one of the greatest communities in Elite. In the spirit of friendship and discovery let us go out to honour her and discover the messages she left for us at Evelyn’s Light. Help us celebrate young Commander Evelyn who shows us the way. Both in game and IRL. Most of all let us go out and discover what is out there together, because together we can reach the stars.

Come join the expedition on Jan 12 3307 as we journey out to rendezvous at Evelyn's Light on Feb 26 and then set out into the unknown! The expedition doesn’t end until May 15 with no other waypoints in between so we can continue Evelyn’s work and journey into the black once we re-supply at Colonia.

(In the August of 2018 Evelyn was a girl hiking up a mountain with her family and complaining of a sore side when she got home. In September of 2018 she was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma with a tumour the size of a grapefruit in her abdomen. Thus began Evelyn’s and her family’s fight against cancer that would last for 1 ½ years. She threw off cancer’s grip on Feb 26, 2020 and ascended to the stars. Hospital treatments to address the disease, radiation, chemo, stem cell transplants and surgery could not weigh down her spirit. She continued to read, play video games and show interest in science, design, fashion, comedy, wookies and the stars. While she slept beside her mother her father spent the long nights in Elite with a new group of comrades, some of whom knew his pain, some of whom shared their own, all of whom shared the game. Our thanks go out to Loose Screws and Frontier, and Drew Wagar for showing their support!)

UPDATE** I will be at Ross 310 at 9PM mountain time to start my voyage out. See you there and in the black!
