Horizion 10 will have an early, early morning launch. “The lights on the towers make the rocket look awesome!” Jeb remarks.
Horizion 10 takes off, and settles into orbit after some initial piloting difficulty. “Dang… wasted some fuel there! We’ll do the math in orbit and see if I can still make it to Minmus!” Jeb says. Fuel is tight on this mission.. so everyone is a bit nervous!
Thankfully it looks like there’s enough fuel in the craft to make it to Minmus and back using a free return trajectory. The burn is a success! Now the REAL test… the long, long flight to Minmus. Jeb says he’s prepared for it though! Good luck Jeb!
