Year 17, Day 94 (Support Lander Launches From Kerbin – With Mixed Results!)

The Aurora Rocket launches from KSC carrying the lander and other supplies!

Before long, remote systems guide the craft to Mun!

The lander sets down slowly… then runs out of fuel! Aurora 18’s support lander barely had fuel to travel from Kerbin and land on Mun… sadly Aurora 19’s second lander didn’t go well either!

“It’s pretty close – I’ll EVA over and see if anything’s salvagable!”
-Malcolm

Malcolm finds the lander… mostly intact!

“The damage isn’t so bad! Looks like the Communication’s dish is intact though! I’ll head back and we can get it installed!”
-Malcolm

Malcolm EVA’s across the Mun’s surface back to the lander!

“Well… this wasn’t a perfect mission, but we did get a lot of science data!”
-Luly

“We did! And next time we’ll have the right tools, and nothing will have to explode!”
-Malcolm

The lander blasts off from the surface…

… and docks with the Aurora Crew Vehicle!
