Im still new to Eve. I was wondering how many possibilities are yet to be discovered out there. I notice shattered ruins from ancient civilizations. How about super advanced ufo like anomalies? Or even cross-dimensional instabilities? Are there pulsars and quazars? What about black or white holes? Magnatars? Comets? Do solar flares happen? Has anyone been unfortunate enough to be visited by a rogue black hole yet? Etc... I have yet to really start exploring much. Yet I wonder what types of enigmas may already exist in New Eden. And what's to come?

I wouldn't mind some random solar flare's shooting across the system you're in. They'd be a real danger to the unaware afk players who arn't keeping an eye on the sun *wink wink nudge nudge CCP*

I would love to see random CMEs and Solar Flares with effects sort of like the Wormhole environments have... but I'm honestly not sure just how much of an effect even an X100 would have on a ship's systems.

Well we can warp to suns and survive the extreme heat but a solar flare is super heated plasma right?

I wonder. Imagine trying to mine for an ultra rare mineral on an asteroid by a sun that goes polar every few minutes. Or mining a comet that seems to attract other objects. Well if there was a level of destructive collision. How about farming different levels of radiation off a star during a certain system alignment. I believe that's telluric energy or something of the sort.
