Year 5, Day 39 (Aurora 17 Heads to Minmus!)

screenshot1502.pngSamner, Edan, and Shepley launch on board Aurora 17!   Edan is particularly excited, as this will be his first landing! This is the first launch of the overhauled Aurora Mission, utilizing a longer term habitation module, similar to that on the upcoming Explorer 2mission!  The purpose is to make space flight more comfortable, and to give crews experience on maneuvers and working environments similar to those in future planned deep space missions.
