Day 9: The frozen corpse mystery

Floating CorpsePeacefully mining in one of Ammold’s mining belts, I noticed something strange in the gas cloud floating near it – hovering over the signal, I discovered that a ship was there, along with something called a “frozen corpse”. At first I freaked out, thinking something dangerous was lurking nearby but then my curiosity got the better of me. I looked at the corpse, and indeed there it was, floating right next to an interesting looking ship, and unmanned too at that.

Before I could get too excited, I checked and saw that I still lacked the skills to fly the thing, so even if I wanted to I could not board it. Someone else will probably get it, or maybe even the real owner if he makes it in time. But how did this eerie sight come into being at all? From what I could glean from a few questions in the RMS channel, the pilot ejected. But why would he commit suicide like that? I sent the pilot an email asking him exactly that, but never got an answer.

Anyway, day 9 and I have already seen a frozen corpse floating around in space. Man, I really feel secure in my “Crunchy” (Burst)… one shot of nearly anything would probably blow me to pieces. I need something more resilient!
