The Home of Science in the Galaxy
Founded in April 3301 by the eponymous Dr Arcanonn, The Canonn is the largest and most active scientific community throughout the bubble, now operating out of Thompson Dock, Varati.
It all started with the emergence of the now infamous ‘Unknown Artefacts’, a mystery (or is it a conspiracy?) that continues to dominate the Elite Dangerous universe.
Our extreme focus and diligence can be attributed to our diet of biscuits, whisky and a penchant for wearing tin foil hats. We take our Science seriously, but we do it without covering ourselves in chalkdust.
Our never-ending mission is not just to uncover the truth about these Unknown Artefacts, but all mysteries throughout the galaxy.
Dr Arcanonn is now helped by the Council who, in turn, only exist because of the members – those brave tinfoil-hat wearers who tirelessly sought the unknown artefacts in those dangerous early days; and who now continue to find exciting science to do, day after day after day after day after day.
Dr Arcanonn has also been recognised by Frontier as a key member of the community, with his own community spotlight 🙂
Wesley Yin-Poole at Eurogamer wrote this excellent article about Canonn, following xDeath’s discovery of the ancient ruins. Read it here

Our first Community Goal in March was a resounding success, providing us with the Canonn Institute in IX-T – the galaxy’s premier Unknown Artefact and Barnacle research lab. Thank you to all commanders and sciencers who took part. Dr Arcanonn salutes you! o7
Preparatory discussions (and general scheming) are underway for a second Community Goal. More news to follow nearer the time – you want to go to Lizard Heaven, don’t you?

Educating Ed (x2!)
This was our first time with Ed, on Thursday 19th November 3301 he joined a bunch of our scientists for a UA hunt and never-before-seen experiment.
Also: check out Ed’s fantastic outfit – featuring equipment sent personally by the Canonn and a very special tinfoil hat!
As if that wasn’t enough – there’s biscuits too!
