Year 8, Day 360 (Explorer 3 Sets Down at Duna’s Western Canyons!)


After the Explorer 3 crew have had enough rest, KSEA gives the green light for the next mission!


The AAL detaches from Duna Spaceport!


Edan starts the descent through the atmosphere – the target landing site is the Western Canyons… no Kerbal has ever been there!


Hold on everyone!  We’ll be entering the atmosphere fast and hot!



Once things cool down, the aero-brakes deploy…


…then the landing parachute!  The abrupt slow-down causes Sean and Glenica to black out, but only briefly!


“We’re down!  Great job everybody… we made it!”
