Horsehead is Permit locked, you might wanna adjust the route :D
Happy to come along IF I'll be back and ready with another ship for that. I'll see.
 
Maybe FD will make the moon landable this year in honor of the landing
That would be so cool.

I mean obviously they'd have to do a bit (!!) of work to get the surface mapping half way reasonable, and enable us to drive an SRV around the remains of the Apollo missions to be half way credible.

But is the amount of work required going to be the obstacle, or is there any lore reason why they couldn't?

And if it is the work required, why haven't they been chipping away at it for ages? (rhetorical question!!)

What timezone are you people playing? This is going to be in the middle of the summer and I doubt that I will play any ED before 9pm CET, unless its raining or the heat is dangerous.

This is going to be around the typical times for European meet ups, about 1900-2100 IGT. If there's enough interest and a willing co-ordinator, different times can be catered for :)

Not really. It's a thousand years in the future, so they can make up what they like. I believe the status in E: D is that the moon in now inhabited.
