Year 13, Day 199 (Pathfinder 7 Launches for Eve!)

Pathfinder 7 blasts off from KSC! This Pathfinder probe will carry 3 of the rovers originally designed for the failed Pathfinder 4 mission. This will be the first test of these “mini” rovers!

The launch goes well…

… and once in orbit the protective fairing ejects!

The transfer stage fires, and the probe starts its journey to Eve!
