Things went well, until Persera misread a fuel gage and ended up flying so far that there was not enough fuel to come back. And after four posts in her attempt to go to "The Void Beyond" she posted this bad news:
However, a group of other Elite Dangerous pilots, called the Fuel Rats have mounted a rescue mission, called "Fuel Beyond the Void".Persera at Frontier Forums wrote:Ok. I've done the math.
If Semotus Beacon is 65647.34Ly from Sol, and I'm now 11.7Ly from Semotus Beacon, that means I'm finally 65659 Ly from Sol without rounding.
But I was wrong about my fuel rollover.
"Main Fuel Tank Drained"
Guess this is it. No return trip for me.
Some of Persera's original voyage was live-streamed on her Twitch channel and at least one of the Fuel Rats is live-streaming the rescue attempt, on his Twitch channel.
