Year 2, Day 5

screenshot193.pngAs Discovery 1 prepares to return from Minmus, Discovery 2 is rolled out!  Discovery 2 will (hopefully) enter orbit, perform a first-ever space rendezvous and (if fuel remains) perform an orbit of Mun! Val will pilot Discovery 2, and rookie engineer Bill will inspect Spacelab for the scientist who has yet to be chosen!  Ideally whoever that is will go up on Discovery 3! screenshot194.png

Orbit is a success!

“”Now let’s see if I can figure out how to rendezvous!  I can barely even spell that!”

Val finds a good place to meet up with Spacelab, and fires the engines at just the right time!screenshot201.png

This is Bill Kerman… transmitting from Spacelab!  All systems seem functional.  It sure is lonely in here though – send someone up soon please!”
-Bill

As Bill gets comfy in Spacelab, Val plots a course to Mun!screenshot202.png

I still have over 2000 d/v of fuel… plenty!
-Val
