Once in orbit, the crew have a terrible realiziation.  The antenna to allow communication with Kerbin during the mission wasn’t installed!  Thankfully, this is just what KSEA has Crew Shuttles for!

Endeavor launches, piloted by Val – Chrisnic is the expert engineer that was available, and will install the new antenna on Explorer 2!

Launching from Shadow Valley is really different – not used to so many mountains surrounding us while we launch!
