Jeb closes the orbit of Discovery 1 to a very close 20km.
Bob hops out and starts running the planned experiments!
“It’s amazing out here! Kerbin looks so small! And Mun, it just looks super tiny!”
The next phase is even more exciting! Jeb adjusts the orbit so that the Discovery 1 will get very close to the surface of Minmus. How close? Almost 8000 meters!
Jeb maneuvers Discovery to a nice, low pass of Minmus.
“I’m going a little ways out from the ship to get a good look!”
“Um… Ok… OK! That’s enough space walking! Minmus looks so close I can practically taste it!”
After calming down Bob returns to Discovery 1, and the crew waits for their scheduled return!
