An early Earth research project. Several manned exploration probes were sent out to explore the universe. Shaped like bells with a tiny life support unit at one end the probes contained a single pilot, held in suspended animation until they reached their destination. This was only ever meant to be a one way mission and the probes were never meant to return, that doesn't mean no one ever did.
