Galnet Recap:

(one note about Oracle station falling from orbit: Art made a remark on a charity stream to the effect of that particular station was not supposed to fall at this time, but a station falling at all was not exactly a bug.

So possibly something intended for future events?)

Community Comms: 

From CMDR Jellowiggler: I have finally made it back to the bubble.  In one piece!  MacphersonMacpherson made it back too!   Only 40.83% of people signed up have actually made all the check points.  You have until June 30!

It took me 2 weeks to travel from Ishum's reach back to Qama via the N highway.  Plenty of time for you to make it back and get a gold star!

Ida, found a bug;

Repairs on Artemis Lodge have been reset to 0%, and all our progress on Betancourt has been reset.

Ty has a cheese
