The Explorer 2 Crew Vehicle launches, carrying Mitster, Dunwin, and Kimmy into orbit!
Once in orbit, the crew have a terrible realiziation. The antenna to allow communication with Kerbin during the mission wasn’t installed! Thankfully, this is just what KSEA has Crew Shuttles for!
Endeavor launches, piloted by Val – Chrisnic is the expert engineer that was available, and will install the new antenna on Explorer 2!
Launching from Shadow Valley is really different – not used to so many mountains surrounding us while we launch!
The crew shuttles will be pushing their upward orbital limit on this mission, but planners are certain that its possible!
Val rendevouses Endeavor with Explorer 2…
While Chrisnic installs the Antenna bracket, and the antenna itself.
Then – back to Kerbin! Endeavor heads down into Shadow Valley….
And makes a perfect landing! In just a few days, Explorer 2 will head to Duna!
