The new year is going to start with a new Duna landing at the Northern Basin!

“Pretty – look Mitster, it’s an “Ike-rise!””

-Kimmy

“The descent angle appears to have been pretty close to the mark! Next time we should try overshooting a little further, the atmosphere here has more drag than you might expect!”

-Mitster

The lander’s parachute deploys, gliding the lander down nice and slow.

“Firing thrusters… nice and easy now… ”

Success! The lander touches down at the Northern Basin! Kimmy and Mitster take a little time to prepare for the exploration outside the lander!

Kimmy hops out, and plants the Kerbal States flag in the red sands of Duna!

“Another step forward for Kerbalkind!”

-Kimmy

After initial scientific readings are gained, Kimmy and Mitster head off to the north to investigate the odd anomalous reading picked up by the Duna Surveyor!

It looks like a strange rock formation!

“It… it almost has a familiar shape about it!”

-Kimmy

“I’m going to use my EVA pack to get up there and see what it looks like from above!”

-Kimmy

It’s impossible!

A rock formation that resembles a Kerbal head!

“I find it highly unlikely this is a naturally occurring object!  Let’s take careful readings and report back to KSC immediately!

-Kimmy

Kimmy and Mitster head back to the lander as quickly as they can!  But the 2km walk feels like a lifetime!
