Only July 6th , 14:55 UTC, the value of
precon007 on Waking Titan had changed:
Calculating PSN coordinates... Estimated time 16:00 EDT. Be ready for urgent travel.
at 20:25 UTC, Simon's Event node was activated, with messages from Emily that provided a No Man's Sky portal address:
Players went to the address mentioned and discovered that the planet had been named:
It was soon discovered that entering
cOffee into the command uplink app connected to Simon.
A short conversation was had with Simon. Emily asked:
Simon, Alex named his planet cOffee. Does this mean anything to you?
After the conversation ended, Emily offered players:
How about this: 2057F96332ED
This was a second No Man's Sky portal address. Players continued traveling and gathering new addresses in this manner.
Subsequent travels revealed the planets were also named:
meteOr , moNkey , banDit , Lonely, and pardoN
Using the capitalized letters from each word revealed an anagram of
S: Who are you? You aren't Emily. C: im with the CSD S: She mentioned them before. Are you going to help me get HOME? C: yes S: How? S: Are you still there? C: with your memories S: With my memories?

C: yes it is C: how can we help you there are 600 people watching S: 600? Wow! S: I don't think I've ever hit 600 viewers before. S: They're here for me? Should I take questions? C: yes thats a good idea C: someone wants to know what you can see S: I only see things during Emily's simulations. S: So, nothing, I guess? C: how can we help you get out? S: I don't know.

HOME in the waking titan console then returned:
LOG RECOVERED :: ITERATION #4924A :: Working fast against the fading sun, I set up camp in the foothills. It's hardly luxury, but it keeps out the cold and I'll be gone by morning anyway. And who knows, perhaps some other traveller will shelter here one day.

On July 7th 2018, 03:17 UTC, the
precon console command changed to return:
PRECON DATA DUMP... https://bit.ly/2m1vN5a
RV @ Fenner // 14:00BST // July 7th
Players gathered at the Ferner statue at 14:00BST. One minute past the hour, the
loop16 console command changed to return:
Make sure you know what to say to Alex if he shows up.
Players then recalled that Simon told players during previous the community event:
Tell him that I miss exploring with my brother
At 7 minutes past the hour, the
precon007 console command changed to return:
PRECON DATA DUMP ALEX https://bit.ly/2KCO4Ex
The glitched image was a Novelty Shop 3 blocks away from the statue. Once players arrived at the shop, they were asked for a password by the store attendant. They responded by saying that Simon missed exploring with Alex. The attendant then handed the players a single game token and then instructed them to win a Nobel prize. Each game was inspected and then found that one, in particular, offered the potential to win a Nobel prize. Players inserted the token and were successful at winning the Nobel prize. The attendant then handed each player an envelope that contained an Xbox No Man's Sky jewel case with the previously disclosed cover art, and a heavily pixelated back image. Inside was a note signed by Hello Games's Sean Murray:
Thank You For Playing We hope you like what's NEXT. XOXO - Sean

During the Element 6 and Extraction countdown, two slides of new information about Simon were shown.
On July 20th, after a brief conversation with an agent from the Citizen Science Division, Simon was safely extracted from the satellite.
