The newly launched Kerbin Surveyor begins scans of Kerbin – right away several anomalies are detected! The X-5 is sent to investigate! Mitster and Bill fly there…. quite fast!
Sadly… they can’t find anything at the site indicated!
“We’re gonna need some more precise readings if we hope to find anything here! It might help to put a sensor package on the X-5 itself! ”
Mitster returns the X-5 to base for refurbishment and the crew for refreshments!
Meanwhile, construction begins on two new crew shuttles – the Endeavor and the Intrepid! Along with Adventure this will raise the number of crew shuttles to three!
