  3. Cargo Storage in Odyssey Video from D2E Astronomy. I’ve also heard a similar theory from Kai Zen of Elite Week
    1. TLDR Version
      1. Get n tons of good A
      2. Go to Settlement
      3. Go to Apex Travel
      4. Jump in a Taxi
      5. Get in a new ship
        1. Your original ship with Goods A in it is still where you left it… therefor cargo storage for all
    2. Ben’s (possible) objection
      1. This makes unproven assumptions that we can get a taxi whilst we have goods in our ship it might just be that getting in a taxi is like getting into a ship with Zero Tons of cargo space and we’re not allowed to until we’ve sold our stuff (just like going from a 100T ship to a 10T ship, you need to lose 90T of goods)
