Astrogation was science of safely and reliably traversing space in a starship.[1] Throughout galactic history,[2] cartographers[3] and scouts[4] traveled between star systems in search for more reliable and safe hyperspace routes free of dangerous obstacles, marking the beginning of astrogation.[2] When traveling through hyperspace, a navigation computer[2] was required to make precise calculations in order to follow these lanes and avoid crashing into "mass shadows," the gravitational wells surrounding massive celestial bodies such as planets.[5] Often, ships had to navigate by way of hyperspace buoys[2] or stop at waypoints to calculate another hyperspace vector.[6]
