ANNOUNCEMENT 2.2 Your Input Needed - Passenger Tourist Destinations

The Messier 78 nebula is absolutely beautiful, and tends to be woefully underlooked by explorers because it's hard to spot from the Galaxy Map. You almost have to know it's there before you go.

Where better than sol, Earth the birthplace of humanity. Forget all the politics or superpowers, this is where it all started, where we were all created. I figure the galaxy is so big now that many people haven't even been to see there ancestry.

Cygnus X-1 - the 15 solar mass black hole ~7.5kly fromt Sol. It was the first black hole recognised as such (by Prof. HAwking and Prof. Thorne in the late 20th century) following the theoretical prediction of their existence by Einstein. In Elite, this should really be the equivalent of a UNESCO site; a slice of history preserved for mankinds legacy.

I went to visit it as soon as we got out of the pill and was the first person to see it that I know of, although I'm not the first discoverer - someone beat me home ;). I'll add a screenshot once I get home.

Not able to take a screenshot but can I request someone do a screenshot of the planet orbited by Kornbluth Orbital in Ngbato? It's spectacularly lumpy and potato-esque
