POI Type: Surface Features - South Pole (-60, 20 area)
Commentary from the pilot who discovered this POI (CMDR Akira Masakari):
"In the Colonia Route, between Hillary Depot and Amundsen Terminal, I've discovered and untagged system with few Gas Giants. I proceeded to scan the only Water Life bearing world I detected with sounds, and its moons. To my surprise the first moon showed a very rugged surface, especially in the south polar regions. I proceeded to orbital cruise and I was amazed: canyons with vertical walls several kms deep formed an incredibly intricate maze that confluxed into a huge impact crater, several hundred kms wide, surrounded by 12 vertical walls. If this wasn't enough, the planet is dotted with vertical spikes that emerge from the valleys for many kms, being visible on orbit protruding from the horizon of the planet.
Another distinguishing feature is that the planet has very wide cracks, and at the bottoms they are covered with forests of hundred meters high rock spikes, making this areas completely unlandable.
I dismissed a fighter to inspect the surface closely and make some measurements, but the canyons are few hundred meters wide at the bottom, and keeping the connection with the mother-ship proved difficult, while making her follow the fighter inside one of this chasm would have meant destruction. For this reason my measurements are all guesstimates. For sure the height of these walls ranges in kilometers, and the maze they form is unseen from me.
Since it is in the beginning of the Colonia Route, in a straight line between Hillary Depot and Amundsen Terminal, the pilot who's bringing an agile ship up or down the route, can have a lot of fun flying in the Labirinto, and also a lot of races could be held here. The low gravity allows extreme manoeuvring for agile ships!
Labirinto means Maze, thus the name."
