Year 14, Day 278 (Intrepid Launches Discovery Crew to Orbit!)

Intrepid blasts off from the Space Center, carrying Jeb, Bill, and Bob! Veteran KSEA pilot Edan is piloting!

The launch stage ejects, and Intrepid enters orbit!

“Almost there! Just a few more more manuevers and we’ll be at the Spaceport!”

-Edan

We’re there! Switching to rear view… taking us in!”

-Edan

Edan pilots the Crew Shuttle closer and closer to the station! This isn’t the easiest task, as the craft actually pilots in reverse, as the docking bay is at the aft of the ship!

“Almost there… almost….”

-Edan

The connection is made! Intrepid arrives at Kerbin Spaceport! Jeb, Bill, and Bob gather their equipment and head out to the Spaceport! As they head to the Discovery docking hatch, Bill catches a look at the ship from the Crew Habitat Cupola!

Wow! That’s one big ship!”

-Bill

One thought on “Year 14, Day 278 (Intrepid Launches Discovery Crew to Orbit!)

  1. I really like my little Crew Shuttles, and I probably take too many pictures of them during missions! This mission to Laythe is probably the most complicated mission I’ve ever done, and it involves a LOT of different parts: A deep space sleeper ship that gets the crew out to Jool, a VTOL SSTO that refuels in orbit of Laythe, and lands fully fuelled on Laythe, and the orbital refuelling station that has enough fuel in it for 4 landings. Yikes!
