This is pretty much a photo dump from my latest KSP efforts.
I started off doing some more rovering.
Tundra? I can almost see the KSC from here!
It appears that there’s Tundra near the shore occasionally!
I also flew some more flights:
Explosions are good 😀
Enough room for two tourists
Although there are a few risks…
Sometimes it goes a bit more smoothly
And designed and built a 3t payload orbiter, the Hopeful 1.
Introducing the Hopeful 1
Some strange payloads…
Proof of orbit
I sent a couple of probes off into the unknown… they might yet be destined for greater things (fingers crossed) like Duna visits, depending on how well I fly them, although one will probably be landed on the Mun. The first didn’t have any science equipment, though, so it’s a bit of an experiment.
A munar flyby!
I learnt how to do intercepts, and recovered Oblas Kerman from a low Kerbin orbit:
Oblas is almost recovered
Oblas on his way back to Kerbin
And did some more tourists flights in my bulk kerbal carrier, although I’m also using it for crew training:
Hopeful 1b, kerbal carrier
To break things up a bit, I did some more flights in my trusty basic ‘plane…
Jeb is happy to be alive… that was *not* an easy landing!
… and some more in my not-so-trusty Lifter 1.
Heading to the north pole!
It looks cold out there…
Taking some surface samples at the north pole
It has an unfortunate tendency to get stuck in a flat spin, especially at high altitudes and high airspeeds. Which means I have to abort and use the parachutes (they are there for a reason!). Least it doesn’t fall apart, though, like some earlier attempts…
