Year 2, Day 01 (Discovery 1 Starts Minmus Research)

Bob hops out and starts running the planned experiments!

“It’s amazing out here!  Kerbin looks so small! And Mun, it just looks super tiny!”

-Bob

The next phase is even more exciting!   Jeb adjusts the orbit so that the Discovery 1 will get very close to the surface of Minmus.   How close?  Almost 8000 meters!  screenshot186.png

Jeb maneuvers  Discovery to a nice, low pass of Minmus.

“I’m going a little ways out from the ship to get a good look!”

-Bob

“Um… Ok… OK!  That’s enough space walking!  Minmus looks so close I can practically taste it!”

-Bob

After calming down Bob returns to Discovery 1, and the crew waits for their scheduled return!
