I had a play yesterday and we were facing the following case :
after an exploration, the sheep was stuck in a loop with no planets or teleports in the path. And no junction artifact to play.

As there is no reference to loops in the rulebook, we did the best solution we could find : roll the black hole dice to free the sheep.

Are we doing well ?

I just don't understand how he could enter a loop, except with using a Junction artifact to change way.

you can loop from Arridis but Arridis is a planet where you can stop then change way (but not put your flag).

Yes, a junction was played before 2 exploration turns

Here is a quick set up of the tiles during our play.



Tiles on top was in play, the sheep was on the asteroid path.
He used a junction to jump to the star path.
Then he did 2 successive explorations (lower tiles), and discover the loop.

And no more junction to play.

I'm surprised but it works... how to deal with this case ?

In this case you're blocked, unless you find another junction or a portable teleporter.
You learned that in space you can't do anything before having explored the universe.

Note that you don't need to have you 3 sheeps playing to win
