C58 Site Report: Black Rock Desert 2023
As anticipated, the C58 appeared in the Black Rock Desert. A city grew around it. It remained for longer than expected but eventually blinked out of this realm.
The C58 Site was recognized by the Historical Sticklers Society with a commemorative plaque describing the historic significance of the Black Rock Desert site where the rocket gained multidimensional capabilities.
When Dynope engineers connected the previously-mothballed training control console to the C58, they made discoveries that shed light on the history of the rocket and provided valuable insights into its previous missions.
The first significant finding was the intact data log. Despite the rocket's crash, the console preserved vital information about its past operations. This included details about the rocket's trajectory, speed, and other parameters. The engineers were astonished to find that the C58 had been part of several classified missions that had previously remained undisclosed. This answers some questions about the period in which the rocket had been declared "lost".
As the engineers delved deeper into the console's data, they uncovered evidence of the rocket's involvement in scientific experiments in other galaxies and what appear to be other time streams. The data revealed experiments related to microgravity, atmospheric conditions, and even extraterrestrial life. These findings opened up new avenues of research and sparked excitement among the scientific community.
However, the Dynope engineers and astroarchaeologists faced significant challenges during their investigation. The region experienced unseasonable heavy rain and flooding due to Hurricane Hilary. The harsh weather conditions made it difficult for the team to access the crash site or leave their encampment. The engineers had to navigate through muddy terrain and rapidly changing landscapes. Levees were built.
Despite the hurdles presented by the flooding, the team persevered and discovered new artifacts from the crash, including food supplies and stowage. They gathered as much data as possible before the entire site vanished, three days later than predicted.
Furthermore, the engineers discovered that the control console had survived the crash and continued to record data during the incident. This unexpected resilience of the console showcased the robustness of the technology used in the rocket's construction. It also highlighted the importance of incorporating such durable components in future space missions.
