Orbit achieved! It’s just a short 5 hour trip to Mun!
Orbit is achieved! KSEA scientists think that the center of the big round Northwest Crater is a good place to set down.
As the craft is guided down, controls are very difficult.

Success! Scout 1 touches down on Mun! Cheers are heard all around Kerbin. Thankfully the vessel didn’t sink into the surface, or explode, or get eaten! Instruments seem to indicate that a Kerbal would be safe enough to conduct a landing! Additionally, after the landing Scout still has just under 790 d/v of fuel – it might be possible to take off, and set down at a different location at a later date!
Construction starts on another Scout probe, this time headed to Minmus!
