As the question in the titles states. Can you steal probes? A player got destroyed by my POS and had several probes deployed in space around him. He warped off in his pod and left the probes behind, floating around the wreck. Is there any way I can scoop up these probes, I can't even right click them or interact with them in any way. So now they just float 3000 m from the POS forcefield, just seems like a waste!

I don't believe you can, although I'm not entirely sure. Based on the fact that you can't interact with them tho, I'm willing to say you can't.

No, only way to get them is if they are in somebodies cargo hold when they get destroyed otherwise you can't grab them.

Ok, that's what I thought aswell. Thank you for the replies.

I fully agree with op that this is a very odd thing in EVE. Always bugged me as well.

I tried once, and I couldn't scoop them.
