Introduction

Pr (Kogiirouk Outpost)

Andrew Reinhard's discovery of the buried Kogiirouk Outpost base in the old Galactic Hub after the Atlas Rises Cataclysm in 2017 was what inspired the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project to study human settlement and abandonment in a digital space. What set this base apart was its ironic simplicity, the fact that its base identifier was glitched, and that ultimately everything was buried under bedrock ranging from the settlement itself to dozens of communication stations, the inscriptions of which could only be read for some. In the game players can rename the places they visit, and one player renamed a waypoint after a bitcoin agency, an example of natural world advertising intrusion into a synthetic environment.

This site was both the 1st and 31st site investigated by Reinhard. He returned on 20 June 2018 to the original dig site he established on 1 October 2017 to see what, if anything had changed. Site report, images, and video accompany this record.
