We are an expedition series started by CMDR Kezika that focuses on real-world celestial objects in the in-game Elite: Dangerous galaxy.
Our first expedition went from January 3, 2020 to May 26, 2020 and visited such sights as Barnard’s Loop, a large nebula near our solar system in the Orion nebula; Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy; and LGM-1, the first discovered pulsar; among other waypoints. The full list can be found at https://expedition.page.link/EDSM1.
Our second expedition went from June 9, 2020 to September 4, 2020, aiming more southerly along the galaxy. We were the first expedition to travel to and safely return from Messier 67, a stellar cluster that prior to fleet carriers you could only jump into via neutron boost, but not back out of. With the new fleet carriers we were able to return safely from the cluster and proceed onward towards 3 Geminorum, one of the southernmost known stars in the in-game galaxy. The full list of waypoints can be found at https://expedition.page.link/EDSM2.
Additionally we started a player minor faction, C.E.A. Psychiatric Institutions Ltd. based in the Keltim system. It is a Corporate government type, and written as a hospital network specializing in the treatment of “Cosmopsychosis”, the often jokingly referred to “space madness” among Elite: Dangerous players. The C.E.A. in the player minor faction in this case stands for Cosmopsychosis Education Association. This gives our group some things to do between our expeditions.
