Impossible Corrie is a colony event chain that has a very small chance to trigger 2 or 3 years after any colony has been founded. It can only happen once per game.

Impossible Corrie

A geological anomaly has come to our attention on [colony name]. We began surveying after a bowl-shaped depression suddenly appeared alongside a mining facility there. Features like this are almost never found outside of a glacial region, but stranger still: the walls of this 'cirque' scatter visible light in a flower-petal pattern, and have been found to resonate when exposed to certain electro-magnetic bands. Investigations are ongoing.

Our scientists report that the newly-uncovered, crystalline blue deposits on [colony name] respond dramatically to delayed-erasure photon energy. The minerals filter its wavelengths and reflect a beam which is capable of transforming ordinary silicates into a new, super-conductive alloy — though only ever during daylight.

Given that this process essentially involves bouncing high levels of radiation around an enclosed space, some scientists have already come out in protest. A different group of excited researchers offers a counter-argument, stressing that this phenomenon could revolutionize the way we refine precious metals. Either way: developing this technique further will be costly.

Overly-Keen Proponents

Regrettable scenes on [colony name], as a group of obsessive scientists sought to intervene in the project's closure. Dazzled by their own research, they attempted to wrest control of the transmutation experiments 'for the benefit of new science.' The resulting scuffle caused equipment to be damaged, and a runaway cascade took hold.

What remains of the cirque is something akin to a geode: a rocky shell around what used to be the equipment and protestors, now re-rendered in crystalline form.

The laboratory on [colony name] is yielding verifiable results. Although their process can still only transmute small amounts of rock into alloys, researchers have high hopes for a larger-scale operation. They have requested access to further resources.

The wayward drone and its findings have been successfully purged. The results of its fluke experiments now litter the landscape; a small amount of useful material has been reclaimed.

Lotus Collapse

The transmutation experiments at [colony name] have failed - though their failure may actually have prevented future catastrophe. When new, more refined equipment was first brought online, it ran well within design tolerances. However, when shut-down instructions were issued, the process accelerated beyond the reach of its failsafes. Conversion took hold in the facility's housing, transmuting it and its surroundings into the same, super-conductive alloy.

The resulting ground explosion has taken a number of lives along with significant chunks of the surrounding landscape. We're left with little other than a seam of good material, and a cautionary tale in metaphysics.

A catastrophic failure has occurred at the experimental facility on [colony name]. Operatives say we may never know what specifically caused the failure in containment, but the result was runaway transmutation of the equipment, its housing, and a vast chunk of the surrounding landscape - all into the same, superconductive alloy. A rich seam of this material is all that remains.
