    That's pretty damn impressive. Suspiciously convenient that it was recorded, though.

    I'm 99% sure it is a staged promo by Frontier. Either they're working with the streamer (though I'd have thought legally they need to disclose it) or they knew he was streaming and recording at that time and intervened to pull him out of FSD into that instance.

    You need an unknown artifact in the hold to get interdicted, those you can find 130 to 150 ly out from maia. It helps to have a resistent cargohold so your internals dont fry while carrying it.

    Pretty sure every site close to Maia are dried up, so if you want artifacts you need to buy them on the local market.

    No not planet sites, deep space 500-700ls from a star, a star that is ~140ly away from maia you will get an unknown signal, drop in and presto an unknown artefact.
