Kerbol 1 blasts off! Unlike most KSEA launches, Kerbol 1 will skip orbiting Kerbin and blast on a course directly toward its target. This means an early morning launch is required, to line up the sun with the launch path!
“Wow, look at it go!”
-Val, watching from KSC
The protective fairing ejects, and Kerbol One will coast for 12 days until it is free of Kerbin’s gravity, then the interception with Kerbol will start!
