Year 7, Day 120 (Wanderer Arrives At Eve!)


The Wanderer Rover arrives at Eve!  In a few days the Rover’s delivery vehicle will fire, putting the craft into an orbit of Eve!  From there KSEA mission planners will determine a good landing site!


Year 7, Day 50 (Aurora 20 Returns to Kerbin!)


After a very long mission, Aurora 20 arrives back at Kerbin!


The Command Pod ejects the rest of the Aurora Crew Vehicle, which burns up on reentry!


The parachute deploys, and Luly, Seely, and Kerlorf gently glide down to an oceanic splashdown!


Mission Success!  Rescue crews from Meridian Island are flown out to rescue the astronauts!

Year 7, Day 48 (Aurora 20 & Unity Space Station Update)

screenshot273.pngThe Aurora 20 Mission to Unity Space Station (finally) comes to an end!  The Research Mission was intended to gather significant data on Mun and to study long-duration of spaceflight on Kerbal physiology. KSEA administrators stress that the length of the mission definitely did not mean that Mission Control forgot about the mission!screenshot274.png

Luly, Seely, and Kerlorf climb into the Aurora Command Pod and leave the station!

“All those exciting missions to Duna doesn’t mean Mun doesn’t have something to offer you know!”

Luly, lead scientist of Aurora 20 mission!

The return of the Aurora 20 mission will leave Unity Space Station uninhabited until the next crew arrives!

Year 7, Day 27 (Explorer 2 Crew returns from Duna Crater landing!)


Mitster and Dunwin blast off – heading back to Duna Spaceport!


“This many missions has left us all exhausted!  It’ll be good to get back to Kerbin!”


Indeed, Explorer 2 has set the record for the most consecutive landings done by one crew!  It’s hoped that the next crew will be able to exceed that, however, using the new “Super Duna Lander”!


“Hmmm… I’m having some trouble connecting the lander with with the docking port!”


“Try spinning!  That’s a good trick!”


“That did it!  We’re docked!  Nice thinking Dunwin!”



The lander docks successfully with Duna Spaceport, and the Explorer 2 team reviews all of the science data they’ve collected over 4 separate landings on the red world of Duna! Their only mission now is to prepare for the return home!

Year 7, Day 26 (Explorer 2 Landing At Duna’s Craters!)


Dunwin, Mitster, and Kimmy work on refueling the Duna Research Lander for what will be the last landing before returning to Kerbin! This time, a crater east of the second Explorer 2 landing has been chosen. Explorer 2’s last landing will be done by Mitster and Dunwin.


“Wow, you can see the crater’s outline as we come down!”



Mitster and Dunwin set down in the Crater, and prepare to head out of the lander.


The guys smile for the camera, then get to work gathering important Science!
