Sotkasenvaara is a stellar black hole claimed by the EIT in the process of consuming an offshoot of the Jolankrivny'i Cloud. A gate link was constructed at a safe distance from Sotkasenvaara so as to allow the construction of a research facility to study a black hole close-up.
Gates linking Sotkasenvaara to the rest of the galaxy were completed in 2095 AD, and in 2097 the system's only space station was completed. The ability to actively research a black hole at such a close distance has allowed new insights into how the universe works, and greatly furthered general understanding of the behavior of matter and forces in extreme conditions.
Planets and features Edit
Stellar black hole almost ten times as massive as Sol in the process of consuming an offshot of the Jolankrivny'i Cloud. Sotkasenvaara is expected to run out of readily available matter to consume by around 2380 AD, at which point it is predicted to become inactive without the introduction of any new matter.
