Seely and rookie scientist Luly are chosen for the first crew aboard Unity Space Station! Edan pilots them up in the refitted Adventure! The new Cargo Module performs well!
Unity Space Station is sitting in a 100k orbit. The shuttle is capable of reaching orbits up to 120k, however tolerances for errors and safety start getting pushed above 100k.
Adventure docks at Unity Space Station!
Luly and Seely head over… but Seely takes the scenic route and installs the new Gravity Sensors on the station! Edan takes a second to correct the orientation of one of the Station’s Habitat Modules…
“There we go… now the other side matches!”
Unity Station begins its transfer to Mun!
This time the launch goes much better than Harmony Station’s… keeping the insertion stage’s engine’s gimbals set lower appears to solve the problem (that and the station has been designed to be symmetrical!) Adventure will remain in orbit until KSEA signals that the Station is safely away!
Unity Station arrives at Mun!It’s just a short 5 hours trip to Mun!
With just a little work, the station is put into a 31k orbit,. Now all the crew needs is a lander, and science can begin! (The Transfer stage still has a little precious fuel in it, so it will remain until the lander arrives!)
Adventure heads down (and ejects its cargo module!)
Another great landing by Edan!
