Introduction

Hesperides (Beecham's Pearl Island)

Beecham's Pearl Island used to be sited on a literal island on a lush, watery world. After the Atlas Rises cataclysm, the pearl farm was relocated several meters in the air surrounded by a ring of communication station inscriptions left by players to express both thanks for the crop and admiration for the base's construction. Upon Andrew Reinhard's arrival, the first visit yielded communication stations only in a floating ring. The second visit saw the farm appear suspended in mid-air. The third and final site visit witnessed the base relocate to ground-level several kilometers away in a completely reconstructed state reflecting the very sensitive and glitched nature of these Pathfinder-era settlements.

This was the 7th site investigated by Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project, which includes videos and images of the farm past and present, plus maps and photogrammetry, as well as a manifest of communication station inscriptions and a history of the site and description of its major glitched behaviors.
