Frontier 2 launches! Unlike the first Frontier Probe, “2” will take a less direct and more fuel efficient journey to Sarnus. If calculations are correct, it will enter the Sarnus system with nearly 4,000/dv of fuel remaining… hopefully enough for plenty of maneuvering in the distant planetary system! The cost is time: the journey will take much longer than Frontier 1: nearly 2.5 years!
In a fit of excitement, KSEA authorizes the construction of 4 more Frontier Probes! The massive expenditure will be occupy most of the funding for quite some time, however several promising transfer windows are opening up soon: Neidon and Urlum! The other two probes will remain in a parking orbit of Kerbin, and are tenatively planned to survey Eve and Duna!
