Project Discovery, the tool in EVE Online to search for real-life exoplanets, is incredibly successful: You are the best!
We had an AMA (“ask me anything”) on the popular Science subreddit with 17 mil subscribers:
- Make the broader audience aware of your impressive work
- Provide a deeper insight into the science behind Project Discovery
- Answer questions from the community

You can shape the future EVE - literally! With EVE Online: Lifeblood on 24 October, we are reshuffling the content of every moon.
To do that, we need to initialize the random part of the algorithm that redistributes the moon content.
YOU can be the one who determines the future moon distribution: Send us the seed of the random number generator!

Guides and community info
An interesting question: Why does anyone mine? Surely, you can make a lot more ISK per hour with other activities. So, what is the motivation?
There are various reasons, and Bjorn Tyrson points out some:
- It can be relaxing
- Enjoyment of building “from the ground”
- Mining on site could be easier than importing materials (depending on the location)
- It scales well with the number of characters
But in the end, the answer is easy: Because people like doing it. (smile)
An interesting question, especially for those who are more involved in faction warfare and the lore of EVE.
