Year 5, Day 133 (Pyramid Launch Complex Opens!)

256x256-4KSEA is excited to announce the opening of the Pyramid Launch Complex!  The facility, located north of White Mesa, will, with any luck, become the new home of the Aurora Crew Vehicle program, providing a dedicated launchpad for these versatile crew rockets.

 

KSEA plans to utilize several sites around Kerbin in the coming year as the Space Program continues to grow!  The main VAB is planned to be used for the largest of vehicles, such as the upcoming Explorer 2 mission, and other massive rockets.

A test flight is scheduled soon!
