[Spacecraft destroyed by chemical reaction in planet's upper atmosphere, after misplaced duodecimal point in initial planetary survey caused factor-of-twelve underestimate of atmospheric oxygen. Entire colonization fleet followed. Approximately 300,000 crew and 4.2 billion deepsleeping colonists killed; all 94,626 ships destroyed over the course of 16 hours, peak rate of approximately 10000 per hour. Highest death toll on record.]
