Year 1, Day 416 (Discovery 1 Launch!)

screenshot165.pngThe Discovery 1 rocket is rolled out to the launchpad – Jebediah will be piloting, with rookie space-scientist Bob on board to assist with research.  This will be Bob’s first mission in space!

Another first for the mission is the first Mission Patch! Symbolizing the adventure from Kerbin to Minus, and promising a future trip to Mun!

“Uh – so this is just the training simulator?  Right?”  -Bob

After achieving orbit, Jeb aligns Discovery’s orbit to that of Minmus.  Then, after a short wait, Discovery 1 burns to Minmus! The trip will be just 6 days – all of Kerbin waits!
