Luly wants to check out an “island” near the landing site, so Val rockets the lander over to the little hill!
“I’m going to get a sample of that green sandstone!”
“Huh… it’s looking more and more like Minmus once had several liquid oceans… but it’s too small, and it’s too cold…. how mysterious! We better get this sample back to Kerbin!”
Explorations continue on the island, where an even bigger rock is found!
“This one’s even rockier and even greener!”
After a continued examination, Luly and Val determine it’s time to return to the ACV!
Eventually, the lander returns to orbit!
“Mission Control, this is Aurora 20 – we’re headin’ home!”
Later, the ACV command module splashes down, west of the space center.
“Welcome home! Let’s get those samples to the lab! I wonder if they’re edible…”
