Aurora 13 arrives in at Minmus! And not a moment too soon, supplies are getting a little tight on the spacecraft. At 45 days into the flight, the crew is defenitely feeling the strain.
“Uh oh… foods running a little tight. I don’t think we should have bothered with checking out Minmus! I’m ditching the lander… we need to do a direct burn toward Kerbin if we want our supplies to last!”
The Minmus landing is cancelled! It looks like the calculations for deltaV were slightly off, and the food supplies won’t last as long! Mitster fires the Aurora Spacecraft’s rockets, and Aurora 13 heads toward Kerbin at high speed! This will be the fastest any craft has attempted reentry to Kerbin!
Potential disaster aside, this will be a good test of the Aurora era hardware for interplanetary journeys!
