Elite:Dangerous is a great game. It’s pretty much “Here’s the entire galaxy. Here’s a spaceship. Off you go!” so you can do whatever you want.
I’d given bounty-hunting, trading and mining a go so I was keen to try exploration. And what better place to go than the super-massive black hole at the centre of our galaxy, Sagittarius A*? Widescreen pics below!
Exploration is pretty cool in Elite; you equip a decent ship (Asp FTW) with scanners and wander the galaxy surveying celestial objects. If you then come back and turn in the data you get paid commensurate to the rarity of the object (Earth-like worlds are very rare and are worth a fortune, for example).
Even better, any systems you scan(and turn in) that haven’t already been visited get your name plastered all over them permanently as the discoverer!
But it’s a long trip; 20 hours (roughly) to get there so you’ve got to be happy seeing the sights; and some of the sights are pretty awesome.
Here are some random pictures from my collection, including the stop at Sagittarius A* itself.
