Year 12, Day 92 (Pathfinder 1 Orbits Laythe!)

screenshot545.pngPathfinder 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!
