Minmus-flavoured

by hobbitalastair

It’s been a while since I last posted!

  • Debris recovery from Munar orbit
  • Tourist flyby of Minmus, and a Munar landing
  • Landing Jeb on Minmus

The Minmus expeditions were particularly pleasing, as I gained around 1300 science – not bad for one Kerbal and minimal equipment! I’m still flying Optimistic-based vessels, so 10t payloads are the order of the day.

I’m planning on attempting to send something to Duna, as there is a good launch window coming up in the near future – I’ll be using an Optimistic 1, possibly with a ‘nuke as the interplanetary stage. The plan is to send at least a probe onto the surface, and either keep another in orbit, or return – depending on how much fuel I have left. I may be able to send more than one probe, which would be fun (Ike, anyone?).

Exercising the CLAW(tm)...

Yet another recovery, this time with a return planned for the debris!

Jeb looks pleased… he probably enjoyed the low gravity
