This is to help out the new players having trouble with these two quests.
I see there is minimum help out for these Quests and people act to High and Mighty when it comes to answering new players that don’t know what they are doing.

- X4: Foundations Crystal Mining
- X4: Foundations Split Vendetta Map
- X4: Foundations Basic Concepts for New Players
Also for the Guides that do exist they are to long and complicated, so I will try to make it as simple and easy for you as possible!
So here goes.
1st: You need to go around any station with your ship in [Scan Mode], make sure you are close enough.
You will be looking for a distress signal, you will hear some [Buzzing] noises when close to a signal and you will need to look for and find something that looks like a [Red Ball] that is discharging energy.
2nd: You will need to [Dock] your ship to the designated location, normally same station. Once you have docked [Get up] and head out of your [Ship] you will need to find the [Interface Unit] which will be on the floor. It should be near the Teleportation platform.
3rd: [Undock] and head to [Scientific Area].
Once in the area activate your [Long Range Scan Mode], press and hold [R] button for 2 [Seconds] before releasing, a blue wave will discharge from your ship looking for the [Anomaly]. (Default key on keyboard is R).
If you are wearing headphones or have a stereo set up you should be able to hear a [Charging] sound, hold the button to long and the [Charging] will [Brake], if the [Charge] [Brakes] you need to do it again so make sure you release the button before the [Break].
4th: [Fly] to the [Anomaly].
(Optional) You can drop a [Nav Beacon] near the [Anomaly] to mark it’s location.
If you do the (Optional) part once you are done gain some distance from the [Anomaly] about 1km.
Once you are in a good distance away from the [Anomaly] activate [Travel Mode] and head into the [Anomaly].
It’s the only way to go through it, otherwise if you try to fly through it without a lot of speed your ship will slow down and eventually [STOP]. You don’t want that.
Scientific Expedition: Completed!
Now [Automatically] starts the next [Quest]
1st: You need to [Deploy] a [Satellite] in the designated location.
2nd: You need to [Deploy] a [Resource Probe] in the designated location.
3rd: You need to [Buy] (3) three [Antimatter Cells] with a [Ship] you do NOT want.
Make sure this ship has no [Upgrades] and no [Crew] on it, it should be only [YOU] on that ship.
Make sure you have a [Second ship] fully equipped and ready to fight in case of danger.
Important: Save your game before doing next part!
4th: Take the [Ship] with the [Antimatter Cells] to the designated location and make sure the [Second Ship] is also near by.
Once the ship with the [Antimatter Cells] is in the designated location [Abandon] the ship in your spacesuit and enter the [Second ship].
Once you are in the [Second ship] move away from the ship with the [Antimatter Cells].
A new [Observation Location] should be available for you, head to the [Observation Location] to activate the [Antimatter Ship] self destruct sequence.
Be careful. Pirates can and will attack your [Antimatter Cells] ship if you don’t go into the [Observation Location] fast, not to worry the ship will not self destruct but you will have to protect it.
If you are in the [Observation Location] pirates may try to attack you. So be on the lookout.
5th: [Fly] to the designated locations around the [Unknown Station].
The Experiment: Completed!
