Year 18, Day 299 (Retriever 2 Launches!)

Retriever 2 launches to a 400k orbit! It’s mission is to bring the asteroid Retriever 1 captured into an orbit close enough that an Aurora Crew Vehicle can intercept, and Kerbals can investigate it!

“We should really redesign that second stage! There’s way too much power there!”
-Gene

After many attempted plots, an intercept with the asteroid is finally resolved!

Finally, Retriever 2 arrives at the Asteroid and docks!

It’s decided to let Retriever 1 go, so as not imbalance the asteroid for movement!

The asteroid mover pushes and pushes until it runs out of fuel! The asteroid’s orbit is still inclined, but not as severely! Another Retriever will be built, and hopefully finish the job!
