Bar Sigma Reopens as Geiger Rising
Following months of remodeling work, the popular watering hole on Sigma Station that was formerly known simply as 'Bar Sigma' has reopened under the new name 'Geiger Rising.' Management proudly announced the installation of new equipment and a new, more gregarious bartender.

In keeping with the broader cultural theme of the new establishment, the new decor includes artwork and artefacts from around the solar system. Hoping to attract a wider audience, a gaming arcade has been opened beneath the bar, and a more varied menu is being planned.

Planet Deemed Worthy of Further Exploration
After examining data gathered from unmanned probes, station astronomers have announced plans for further exploration of a recently discovered distant planet. In order to facilitate research reporting, the planet has been given a name - Edyne. Data gathered from the planet, formerly designated AS25-04T, have revealed the possible presence of an atmosphere and oceans.

Station astronomers have planned further unmanned probes in the immediate future, with manned exploration likely in the future.
