Year 1, Day 49


The newly built Horizon 2 is launched!  This time rookie pilot Valentina will be in command.  The goal is still orbit! 


It’s getting toasty!  Before firing the next stage Val had to let the craft coast a short time to avoid overheating.


Horizon 2 reaches a new record altitude… 82km!  Sadly the Horizon just doesn’t seem to have the power to get much beyond the initial apoaspsis. screenshot23

Val sets down safely, and the Horizon 2 pod is recovered.  KSEA engineers start working out how to get past this obstacle!
