Geocache Description:


As it is well known, Yugoslavia was developing a nuclear programme during the Cold War as part of the scientific research conducted at the Nuclear Science Institute Vinča in Belgrade. It is, however, less known that at the same time there was a space research project being carried out in Zagreb at the then secret location in underground chambers beneath the former Borongaj Airport. The treasure is not located at the given coordinates of the Centre whose work was conducted in cooperation with the comrades from DPR Korea.

While the wise Yugoslavs were deliberating the possibility to launch themselves to the Moon, in a galaxy far away our hero Conrad Uno set out from his solar system on a diplomatic assignment in a tiny warp-powered vessel. He visited nine other systems in order to finally return home after accomplishing his mission. During his journey he travelled the distance of 66 light years, his diplomatic Route 66. Here you can see the two-dimensional depiction of a three-dimensional system located in an elite part of a galaxy which consists of 25 solar systems. Conrad Uno visited them in the order shown on the map. It should be emphasized that in an intergalactic public transport map design contest this map won by an inch, leaving the London Tube Map as the runner-up. Each line connecting the systems designates the trajectory of one light year exactly. From the data about the distances between the systems Conrad visited (looking the shortest trajectories) you should determine the order in which he performed his diplomatic assignment to finally return to where he had departed from. When you enter the exact order of solar systems into the table, find the star date of the beginning of Conrad’s journey. Then enter this star date into Certitude in capital letters with no spaces in order to get the final instructions regarding Conrad’s assignment.

Good luck!

ROUTE MAP

 

Kao što je dobro poznato, u vrijeme hladnoga rata Jugoslavija je razvijala nuklearni program u sklopu istraživačkog rada na Institutu za nuklearne nauke „Vinča“ u Beogradu. Međutim manje je poznato da je u isto vrijeme u Zagrebu vođen projekt svemirskog istraživanja na tada tajnoj lokaciji u podzemnim odajama ispod nekadašnjeg aerodroma „Borongaj“. Blago se ne nalazi na zadanim koordinatama centra čiji je rad vođen u suradnji sa drugovima iz DNR Koreje.


U isto vrijeme dok su mudri Jugoslaveni promišljali kako da se lansiraju do Mjeseca, u jednoj dalekoj galaksiji naš se junak Conrad Uno otisnuo u diplomatski zadatak iz svog sunčevog sustava malenim brodom na warp pogon. Obišao je devet drugih sustava kako bi se konačno vratio kući dobro obavljena posla. Na svome je putu prešao udaljenost od 66 svjetlosnih godina, svoj diplomatski Route 66. Ovdje vidite dvodimenzionalni prikaz trodimenzionalnog sustava elitnog dijela galaksije koji se sastoji od 25 solarnih sustava. Conrad Uno ih je posjećivao redom onako kako je navedeno na mapi. Važno je napomenuti da je na intergalaktičkom konkursu za dizajn shematskog prikaza javnog prijevoza ova mapa za prsa odnijela pobjedu pred mapom londonskog Metroa. Svaka crta koja povezuje sustave označava putanju od točno jedne svjetlosne godine. Iz podataka o nekim udaljenostima između sustava koje je Conrad posjetio (gledajući najkraće putanje) trebate odrediti redoslijed kojim je obavljao diplomatsku misiju konačno se vrativši kući odakle je i krenuo. Kada u tablicu upišete točan redoslijed sunčevih sustava otkrijte zvjezdani datum početka Conradovog putovanja. Taj zvjezdani datum bez razmaka velikim slovima upišite u Certitude kako bi ste dobili konačne upute vezane za Conradov zadatak.


Sretno!
