Yet another ELITE: DANGEROUS trailer

Elite: Dangerous celebrates the arrival of the next stage of its beta test with a new video. This shows off the Orbis-class space station (a redesign of a station from Frontier: Elite II) which will appear in the game alongside the more familiar Coriolis-class. This video is best play at 1080p in fullscreen.

The Orbis is a nod to Space Station One from Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, hence the appropriate music (which was also the docking music for the original Elite).

Elite: Dangerous is expected for release at the end of the year, I suspect in October.
