The Museum’s gift shop opened 2 years ago. So far it has been moderately successful with some items being especially treasured by their owners. These cubes are replicas of those found on one of the early explorations of other planets. People on a small planet orbiting the minor star Sol were especially interested in the idea that these were originally made on a planet that was losing its blue identity as, warming up, the dry heat evaporated water away.
The robot drone exploring EXO159 picked up a series of objects, laid out in various patterns. Initial reports from the post human scientific crew of the mission suggest that there is some ambivalence as to whether the turquoise colouring is due to deposition of the gas surrounding the planet or is part of a continuing sublimation to create the gas.
We’ve been rummaging in the basement and came across a box of fossilised fixons. These are fossilised remains of creatures that somehow overcame the biosecurity of a Balinger Freight Corporation ship’s hold. During interstellar travel they were subject to an enormous variety of pressures and eventually turned into what feels like small stones. They were found during routine maintenance in 3248 when measures were immediately taken to prevent a similar occurrence.
