The new Horizon-A rockets are ready and Jeb and Val are itching to try them! The first is named Horizon-3 and if everything goes well, it will be the first craft to orbit Kerbin!
The first two stages fire, and take Horizon 3 into a good apoapsis of 86k!
At apoapsis the LV-900 fires, and Jeb pilots the craft into a nice stable orbit (somewhat sloppy though, without the assistance of computers!)
Mission Control radar tracking confirms it: orbit achieved! What a day! Jeb completes one full orbit of Kerbin, then aims for what looks like KSC!
Jeb ejects the orbital section. “What a shame! It was a good ship!” he says.
Jeb splashes down west of the KSC peninsula. “Ah! So wet! I’m ready to get rescued guys!!”
