Minerva Centaurus Expedition

Greetings Commanders!



In November 3303 the Minerva Centaurus Expedition will launch from the Bubble, with the aim to more fully explore the Scutum-Centaurus Arm of the galaxy.
For most of the 'eastern' part of the Scutum-Centaurus Arm, has not been anything more than nominaly explored by a handful of CMDRs. The time has come to plug the holes in humanities knowledge of this area of space. After moving through the eastern side of the Scutum-Centaurus Arm, we will proceed further along the arm, until we reach the galactic 'north'. From this point the expedition will head gradually towards our ultimate destination, Colonia.

The Minerva Centaurus Expedition is named after the Roman Goddess of wisdom, heroic endeavours, battle, and civilization. She was the Roman version of the Greek Goddess Athena. To the expedition, she represents the bold endeavours that we wish to accomplish in the exploration of space. Centaurus after the Scutum-Centaurus Arm, that we will be exploring.

This journey will be approximately 103,000 ly, and last all of four months. From November 19th 3303 to 11th March 3304.

I really regretted missing the M7E. It looked like a lot of fun was had, and we know much more about Elite's galaxy because of it. I won't miss another opportunity to fly with you all. Looking forward to it!
 
Is this expedition going to have meetups at the waypoints? I really enjoyed last year's August Exodus - the waypoints broke the journey up and everyone got onto discord voice chat, and there was some tomfoolery in SRVs to give a bit of R&R from the otherwise long haul (very long haul in my case, in a Python that would only jump 20LY in one go) and of course some awesome mass jumps.

Hi Winston. Yes we'll be having a meet up at all the waypoints. SRV and fighters fun included! :)
 
Commanders, I can confirm we will be leaving HIP 72043 on November 19th 3303, and arriving at Centralis on the 11th of March 3304.
So that's one of your diaries! :)
