Does the yellow star on the science sites of the expanded map mean something in game-terms (like x2 VP or something)?

It's explained in the latest rules:

Rulebook wrote:
The heroism star is found in the Glory Arena of recent edition maps. If you feel that you have accomplished something heroic, you may call for a vote on that turn. If the majority of players agree that you have earned it, place a cube on this star, worth 3 VP.

Yes, they are Interstellar Science Sites. If you claim them, they are worth 10 VP each (+1 for the claim disk itself) and it is another game end condition: the game is over at the end of the round if there are two such sites claimed. There is a footnote in the expanded map the explains these interetellar science sites.

EDIT: oops, I don't have the latest expanded map and thus haven't ssen the heroism feature; I though he was referring to the interstellar science sites. My bad blush

Excellent. Cheers for the speedy replies chaps!

Edit: Nuts. If only I just read the left hand edge of the map!

After a particulary luckless and grueling game, I burned in a 14-mass Mars mission with crew. Horrified, I turned away from the map and screamed silently. When I turned back, someone had already placed one of my markers on the Heroism star.

And then again, in another game, after I lost my third crew in a row to a solar flare on approach to Mercury.

We have found the voting part unnecessary. Everyone just knows.

Even more confusing is the fact I was referring to interstellar science sites!

Shame on me, then. I will remove the strikethrough I put in the first answer.
