The Aurora 20 lander heads down to the surface of Minmus!
Val and Luly detach from the Aurora 20 command module, and head down to Minmus!
The lander touches down, right at sunrise!
“Oooo! Pretty! “
The RCS system lifts the rover off the lander…
… and sets down perfectly near the lander!
The Rover-Deployer ejects, and the two Kerbals start exploring!
“As I suspected, this rover doesn’t handle very well – one sharp turn and the rover might get destroyed! As long as we keep it slow we’ll be OK though!”
The pair find a variety of green Minmus Sandstones, and take various samples of the Lesser Flats.
“Time to set up the science equipment!”
Luly and Val head back to the lander!
“There we go, all set up! This should start transmitting science back to Kerbin anytime now – and we remembered to bring all the parts this time!”
The Aurora 20 crew will remain on Minmus for a few more days to make sure all the scientific equipment is functioning properly!
