Year 16, Day 380 (KerbScan1 Launches!)

KerbScan1 blasts off! Unlike most launches from the space center, KerbScan launches into an 85 degree orbit – to better scan the surface of the planet!

Scientists think that a 200k polar orbit is ideal – so the sattelite burns…

…and then ejects it’s orbital stage! Already the cameras are transmitting some amazing images of the auroras at the poles! Works starts right away on another KerbScan!
