An update after the long silence. Due to the fast growth of the refugee population & the rising threat of the Drifters about a year ago, I had decided to dedicate myself to the management of the Aurora Arcology. This in turn also meant the stop of Aurora News publications.
For the time being, Aurora News won't make it's full return, mainly staying focused on updates on the Arcology project & occasionally bringing a different article, likely around the history of New Eden & capsuleers.
Over the silent year, the Aurora Arcology continued to accept new refugees. Thanks to the many capsuleers who continue to support us, the growth has been steady and more & more people have been given a new chance in life.
On top of this, we also received a large variety of artifacts for study and display. Gifts like these are an important part of maintaining the cultural link with home, but also to give an insight into different cultures, good & bad.
In order to give these relics the proper attention, the museum has been expanded, both the display section as its archaeological division.
The artifacts we received are varied: Minmatar statues, old Amarr texts, Talocan machinery, Takmahl art, mysterious devices of unknown civilizations and Capsuleer relics of important events.
Displaying these at the museum will go a long way to help people improve their understanding of the various civilizations & groups in New Eden across history & space and ultimately improve their understanding of cultures other then theirs.
