The crew is chosen for Aurora 13: Mitster, Orlas, and Chrisnic! The three Kerbals are extremely excited that they might be the crew for Explorer’s mission to Eve!
Aurora 13 blasts off! Today’s mission: leave the Kerbin sphere of influence for a long duration space flight, re-enter Kerbin’s sphere of influence, transfer to Minmus, then return to Kerbin after the mission is complete! This will be one of the most complicated and longest duration missions ever attempted!
The transfer stage fires and sends Aurora 13 on its way! Unlike a normal Aurora Mission, the docking and transposition maneuver will be conducted much later in the mission. This is to allow extra fuel for mission planning purposes!
“Get comfortable everybody! 16 days until we leave Kerbin’s gravity and make history!:
