Few places in the virtual galaxy of New Eden are as special as the Molea Cemetery. For over a decade, a small group of EVE Online pilots have been maintaining it, working tirelessly to collect the corpses left behind by those killed in-game and inter them. Over the years, however, the Molea Cemetery has also become a place to memorialize real-life people who have died, many of them EVE Online players.

There are over a thousand memorials in Molea, each one a floating cargo container with its name changed to a short eulogy for the deceased. Despite its scale, though, the cemetery has always been an unofficial, player-created phenomenon—until now. Earlier this week, CCP Games unveiled a new monument that would become the centerpiece of the Molea Cemetery, an enormous statue of basalt columns with a beacon that periodically emits a bright pulse of light upward.
