A world with a surface-observable White Dwarf star at a distance of 0.06 ls.
Notice: This POI shares the same star system with a prior existing entry in the Galactic Mapping Project (GMP). You can visit the original entry using the link below:
Monde de la Mort (World of Death) is a small landable metal-rich world in extremely close orbit of a white dwarf. The world has an elliptical orbit which is 2.5 light-seconds at maximum and a terrifying 0.06 light-seconds at closest approach to the star. The orbit takes approximately one hour.
Landing on this planet is extremely hazardous: it can only be approached when it is outside the exclusion zone for the white dwarf, and getting caught in the jet of the white dwarf is possible. Explorers aiming to reach the surface have a narrow window during which they can land. The heat from the star is also significant, and managing ship heat levels must be considered when landing. Finally, the planet will pass through the jets of white dwarf over the course of the one-hour orbit.
After all this, those managing to land will see astonishing views of the white dwarf from close range.

I've been here twice, and somewhere around here I've got a recording of the passage through the death zone in Odyssey. I was fine in my SRV, but I was scared to leave. I'm not sure if my commander would be microwaved to death. The lensing is quite intense. If you're near the bridge between Colonia and Sag A*, go a bit off course and give this a view. You won't regret it.

This was the single most amazing ED experience I've ever had, hands-down, bar none, etc, etc. I can't imagine it ever being matched. It still takes my breath away just thinking about it.
