Year 2, Day 4

While Jeb and Bob research Minmus, final preparations are made on Spacelab, the Kerbal States’ first space station! screenshot187.png

Launched on top of a Discovery rocket, the space station slowly lumbers into the sky, piloted entirely by antenna.

Near disaster!  During the launch, the entire rocket flips over around 40k – the gravity turn was not done well!  Thankfully the rocket recovers, and orbit was achieved! screenshot191.png

Thanks to the Kerb-Sat network the station remains in constant contact with Mission Control!  Now it just needs a crew!
