Unlike the other 'Visit....' achievements, this one is a journey.

This achievement unlocks when you visit the Colonia system - otherwise known as the new bubble or the system Jaques station ended up in.

This system is 22,000LY from Sol (Earth) and requires planning similar to a trip to Sagittarius A. You want a ship with good jump range and a good amount of time. This isn't something you would want to do in 1 sitting. Plan to make a certain amount of progress per day to make it less painful.

Of note: If you happen to be parked in the system and log in post patch, it will unlock as your ship is spinning.

Ownasaur mentioned that you can make the return trip without losing your scan data if you sell it before self-destructing your way home. (Make sure you chose Sidewinder and be aware that this will destroy your ship and it won't come back! If its pricey, don't do this!)

For help getting there and back, the community has pulled together a website to help you ride the neutron highway to speed things up significantly! I can't find hard numbers right this second on what the increases are. White Dwarfs give something like 50% more range when you navigate through its cone (meaning if you jump 20LY, you would be able to make a 30LY jump) while Neutron Stars give you 4 times your current range. My ship, The Merry Mushroom does 55LY on a full tank. Using a neutron cone I can make a 220LY jump. That's no small feat! To help you map a course with the aid of these stars, use this site:
