The Ansing Expedition was a famous exploration of the accessible reaches of the Gas Giant Annikkittar in the Pretoria system in 870 to 884.

Description / Specifications[edit]

Extensive use of specially designed exploration vessels, protective environment suits, and high technology equipment allowed the Ansing Foundation of Vland to extensively map and explore the upper reaches of the gas giant's atmosphere.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

It is noted as an important breakthrough, not for being the first mission to map a gas giant, but the first mission to receive popular acclaim for doing so. Library Data entries still appear in everyday news despite the news item being several hundred years old. Some attribute this to a glitch in the AAB system.
