This is the summary of the results from a research project which started about three weeks ago and concluded yesterday. It has been labeled the Joint unidentified Wormhole Research Effort (JuRE). Crucial support came from Signal Cartel / EVE Scout and the North Khanid Traders, namely Aldar Roanaok, Aneko Cavin-Guang, Mike Cartwright, and Void Raven. The raw data is available. Also, the FULL REPORT with graphs and tables is ready for download.
Below you find the problem description and the research results in a nutshell.
Goal: The research deals with the target pattern of unidentified wormholes (uiWH). Those wormholes appeared around YC 117 and are closely connected to the discovery of the five Drifter Hive Systems. The report details the attempt to make statistical inference on the uiWHs’ target system pattern and possible relationships to Triglavian invasions. The results are considered to be provisional. More data collection is necessary, especially on the fast shifting development of Triglavian invasions. Continuing efforts are advised by the results.
Results: On Cluster level, the unidentified Wormholes (uiWH) which reach out from the five Drifter Hive wormhole systems seem to follow basically a random distribution across New Eden’s regions, weighted by the Jove Observatory distribution. Their targeting pattern covers the whole of New Eden. However, within regions, there are indications that Hive systems might focus on specific Triglavian invasions. Kador and Genesis showed unexpected numbers within the given five day time window of observation. This was reproduced by two types of calculations, one assuming that uiWHs would only appear in systems with a Jove Observatory, the other one assuming an independent distribution. Both results came to a very similar conclusion. Mediating variables which explain the unlikely appearance of multiple wormholes within a single invasion have yet to be discovered in order to enlighten this finding any further.
Beyond those results, the project could confirm that C1 to C6 statics are presently a constant finding in the five Hive systems. Also, the position of Jove Observatories as presented by some well distributed lists is no longer fully reliable. The project discovered inconsistencies and errors.
Further research is advised, especially with the ongoing expansion of Triglavian ‘provings’ and inasive campaigns. Last but not least, despite many research operations into the Hive systems, their innermost purpose and secret remains unrevealed. Will we see the conflict between Drifters and Triglavians spill into the Hve systems or do we have to expect more massive Difter fleets to make a more aggressive use of the uiWH exits into our empires? Some answers might be inaccessible to us for now, but some others are within our reach. Follow-up research should overcome the limitations of the provisional results presented so far.
Finally, a grateful thank you to all participants, supporters, and donators. You made a fast and efficient project execution possible.
