The Mercury 7 Explorers present...

The Apollo 15 Anniversary Expedition!

To celebrate fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 15 becoming the pinnacle of achievement in human exploration, we will be flying from the Hind Nebula to the breathtakingly spectacular worlds of David and Goliath in celebration of this amazing achievement.

All Commanders of all levels of experience in exploration are welcome. From those who are totally new to exploration, all the way to those hardened veterans of Elite with millions of light years under their belts...all will find a place in the community of players that makes up the expedition.

This expedition is the successor to the popular Apollo 11 Anniversary Expedition (A11X), where 670 CMDR's celebrated the Apollo 11 Moon Landings 50 years to the moment after the Eagle touching down in the Sea of Tranquility. A11X remains the most successful player-base organised event in the history of Elite:Dangerous after the epic Distant Worlds, and Distant Worlds 2 expeditions.

This expedition is being talked about by many CMDR's as being the 'last of the big Horizons era expeditions', due to the imminent retirement of the Horizons planetary technology. In honour of this we are treating this expedition as the 'Horizons Hurrah', to give this era of Elite:Dangerous its rightful send-off in the way we explorers know best. With SRV & SLF races, mountain climbing, death dives, mass jumps and many other events that explorers know and love!
