Frontier 2 approaches Sarnus…
Finally, the craft fires its engines to circularize its orbit – extremely close to the rings of the distant, mysterious world!
Onboard systems relay amazing new findings about Sarnus that scientists on Kerbin will be pouring over for years!
Slowly, the probe’s long and eliptical orbit takes it away from Sarnus!
but the adventure isn’t over quite yet, the craft’s trajectory will take it into the gravitational sphere of Eeloo, one of Sarnus’s (many)moons!
Sarnus’s magnificent vista doesn’t fail to impress!
Frontier 2 silently passed by Eeloo – while the probe is not equipped with the modern scanning hardware of the Surveyor probes, Frontier 2 dutifully scans what it can.
The moon Slate can be seen in the distance.
What an incredible day for science! The most recent accomplishments of the space program have inspired all of Kerbin!
