The Explorer spacecraft finishes its journey from Eve to Gilly, circularizing an orbit around the small planetoid.
“Fuel keeps getting lower and lower guys… let’s try to be careful!”
For the first time all three crew of a spacecraft will abandon their vessel and head down in a lander. It’s a bit risky… but no one wants to be left behind on such a momentous occasion!Chrisnic, Mitster, and Orlas climb into the LARC… and detach!
The LARC slowly moves away from Explorer.. and heads down to Gilly!
“”I’m so excited! ”
The LARC sets down, and Chrisnic climbs out…
Once he lets go of the ladder, the slightest step sends him flying across the surface
“Whoa! The low gravity here is… very low! Be careful!”
Mitster is next… expertly piloting his rocket pack over to Chrisnic!
“You weren’t kidding! It’s almost like we’re in space, and not even on a moon!
Orlas jumps out next!
After having a good deal of fun playing on Gilly, the crew of Explorer gathers to take a landing portrait…. when Orlas notices something…
“Wow! What a sight to behold!”
The crew pose for their portrait… the first Kerbals to land on Gilly! What a day! The crew will spend about 4 days on the surface of Gilly collecting important data before returning to the Explorer, high above the small moon… empty… waiting for its crew!
