Success!  Scout 1 touches down on Mun!  Cheers are heard all around Kerbin.  Thankfully the vessel didn’t sink into the surface, or explode, or get eaten!  Instruments seem to indicate that a Kerbal would be safe enough to conduct a landing!   Additionally, after the landing Scout still has just under 790 d/v of fuel – it might be possible to take off, and set down at a different location at a later date!

Construction starts on another Scout probe, this time headed to Minmus!
