Crew Vehicle 5 blasts off from White Mesa! The spacecraft has a new second stage that should increase fuel supply and allow more mission options – however the primary goal has been more precise landings at the White Mesa facility.
CV5 reaches orbit, and begins docking procedures with Spacedock!
“That new second stage looks good!”
CV5 docks! Meanwhile, Mirphe, Edan, and Kerlorf all transfer over to CV2 and get ready to return to Kerbin!
“Spacedock this is CV2… we are clear and preparing for reentry burn once clear of the station…”
The crew vehicle performs the reentry burn…
… and streaks through the atmosphere, heading towards the desert White Mesa facility!
The parachutes deploy, and CV2 heads for a landing!
“Looks like we were a little short from White Mesa – hopefully the new second stage will let us land right on target next time!”
Everyone hops out of CV2 to get some fresh air, waiting for the rescue teams!
