Pathfinder 1 manuevers to enter a polar orbit of Laythe at an altitude of 242k. This will be an ideal orbit to release the orbital scanner probe!
The orbital scanner ejects from the Tri-Probe mount…
… extends it’s solar array and begins mapping the surface!
Once a sufficient scan is complete, KSEA will determine the ideal landing coordinates for the two probes onboard Pathfinder 1!
In the meantime, Pathfinder 1 is instructed to reduce its orbit to 60k… an orbit KSEA engineers and scientists predict will be the best to deploy the surface probes from!
