Year 9, Day 229 (Malcolm and Mirphe return home!)


As the Aurora Crew Vehicle approaches Kerbin, Malcolm carefully removes the tape over the staging switch marked “DO NOT PRESS!”


“<<audible CLUNK!>> Staging complete!  Whew!  That switch should have a cover over it or something!  ACV on approach for a water landing!”



The ACV races through the atmosphere!


Until the parachute fires, and the command module splashes down gently in the ocean!

“A rescue mission that turned into a little adventure – nicely done!”

-Gene, Mission Control
