A KSS Support Vehicle blasts off, and carries a cargo of plants for the researches on the KSS to study growing in orbit! A previous launch of the same payload seemed ineffective… The KSS crew wonders if they got baked during launch. If this experiment is successful, it will be the first time a Support Vehicle has attempted returning to Kerbin.
The Service Vehicle moves in for a rendevous with the KSS… and docks!Mena
Meanwhile, it looks like the previous Plant Science mission has actually had some results! The plants have in fact grown!
“Well… let’s send it down and see what the scientists on the surface have to say!”
Good idea Glenica! The Service Vehicle detaches, and begins its attempt to de-orbit. KSEA hopes to set the pod down as close to the Space Center as possible. Let’s hope the results survive re-entry!
The Service Vehicle begins its descent!
Surviving the fire of re-entry, the pod heads for a touchdown in the fields at the base of the mountains west of the Space Center.
“Sensors indicate a clean landing! Let’s get a team out there asap!”
