It’s a busy day – the Explorer 2 Crew Vehicle and Duna Spaceport will begin their journey to Duna! The first mission to Duna will likely be the most complicated, as there are two seperate missions running concurrently – the first, delivering a spaceport and a reusable lander to Duna orbit. The second, the crew themselves on Explorer 2!
Explorer 2 departs as well – and performs the docking and transposition manuever to let the crew gain access to the much more comfortable Habitat Module that will be their home on the journey to Duna!
The new Antenna installed by Chrisnic is a tight fit, but appears to be performing well!
Meanwhile, the Duna Surveyor will soon be approaching Duna, to start mapping the surface for a future landing!
