Year 17, Day 242 (Malcolm Test-Pilots Mk10 Aurora Crew Vehicle!)

Malcolm blasts off in the new Mk10 Crew Vehicle!

The crew vehicle quickly reaches orbit, then Malcolm sets course for the Spaceport!

“This cabin is so roomy! Much more breathing room in here!”
-Malcolm

After rendezvousing with the Spaceport, Malcolm docks the spacecraft!

“Yikes! This centrifugal wheel is sure close to the docking ports! We should add something to make docking safer!”
-Malcolm

After some system tests, Malcolm undocks, and heads back to the surface!

The Mk10 decouples, and the command module heads back to the surface!

“Heading down… a little bumpy… but I’m on course to land just west of the Space Center!
-Malcolm

The landing engines fire to slow down the Mk10…

… then the parachute deploys!

Malcolm climbs out, and the Mk10 is given approval for future production!
