After traveling for several days, Summer and Orlas have still not found any water on Mun!
“These surface readings are a 1:1 match for orbital readings… there appears to be NO detectable water here at all! We can try digging with equipment in future missions… but I don’t think we should plan on any base that has water sourced from Mun itself!”
“Some good news though… we’ve found a nice flat area that is rich in most other resources! It’s also quite scenic!”
Mission Control review the data… there’s a lot of disappointment that Mun seems to have no water, but Orlas helpfully makes a point:
“There are plenty of other worlds to colonize! We can use Mun as a testbed for future sites that may also not have water, for long term but not self-sustaining colonies!”
At the original landing site for Aurora 27, the lander is remotely piloted up…
…and then to the new site found by Summer and Orlas!
“Look! There it is! These new landers are so advanced!”
The two Kerbals drive the rover back to the lander, and camp out while Mission Control decides the next move!
