Deeper, into the depths we delve...
Greetings Commanders,Following the resounding success of the Crab Nebula Expedition, we are pleased to announce its successor: The Galactic Nebula Expedition!
GNE Trailer - Made by Rodney McKay
1. To scout and catalogue the surrounding systems along each main waypoint on the way to the core.
2. To formally name (within game of course, not officially ) the nebulae that mark the route, including any notable points of interest found along the way. This data will be submitted to the Galactic Mapping Project.
3. To further strengthen the Exploration community within Elite Dangerous, and, above all else, to have fun
With all the activity occurring in the ED universe, the GNE may even see some remarkable discoveries along the way. It will take commanders through some of the most breathtaking parts of the galaxy, and will earn everyone a trip into the infamous 'neutron fields' before concluding at the supermassive black hole at the galactic centre.The final destination, Sagittarius a* is a location visited by many veteran explorers, however its distance from the bubble can be very intimidating for new players, our hope is that an organised event will encourage more explorers to explore the 'core'.
This will be a “Chill & safe expedition" for the following reasons: It allows commanders to easily catch up with the fleet, and also allows commanders to take roughly a week between waypoints so that events in their personal lives don’t prevent them from continuing with us.
