Year 5, Day 308 (Frontier 2 Tekto Encounter!)

Frontier 2 does a long-distance flyby of Tekto!  While the probe has enough fuel to enter orbit, scientists are more interested in the other moons of Sarnus for the time being.  The more advanced Sarnus Surveyor will hopefuly be able to map the surface of Tekto!

Year 5, Day 101 (Sarnus Surveyor)

The Sarnus Surveyor is the next probe to launch – this time a night launch!  The window to Sarnus is in 34 days – the craft will stay in a parking orbit until then!

It’s thought that the Sarnus Surveyor will have enough fuel to explore much of the Sarnus system… however a specific target hasn’t been decided, a maneuver en route will adjust the approach once KSEA decides where to send the probe!

Year 5, Day 92 (New Surveyor Probes Commissioned!)

KSEA commissions the development of several new Surveyor class deep space probes – Neidon Surveyor, Urlum Surveyor, Sarnus Surveyor, and the Jool Surveyor.  Like Duna Surveyor, these deep space probes are designed to map the surface of deep space bodies to allow a more scientific approach to exploring space!
