Year 2, Day 348 (Explorer Probe 1 Orbits Eve)


The Explorer 1 probe reaches Eve!   Mission Control has some spotty communications issues at first, but a slight readjustment of the Kerbin LongSat allows uninterrupted communications. screenshot617.png

At a 100k orbit, the probe is instructed to ciruclarize orbit – success!  Onboard equipment begins testing – initial readings indicate that Eve is big, and quite purple!
