The new Sarnus/Slate Relay-Scanner probe arrives at the Sarnus system!
“We still have communication! All those communications dishes really do add up to create a better connection with Kerbin!”
-Gene, at Mission Control
The Slate Probe performs an orbital capture maneuver…
… then captures into a 65 degree inclination Slate Orbit!
“We have enough deltaV to maneuver the probe again if need be – but good work everybody! This is our first probe around Slate!
Indeed, previous probes to the Sarnus system have all failed – either not enough power, or not enough communications capacity. This time – it looks like a proper scan of Slate can be completed!
The lens protector on the surface telescope opens!
“We’re recieving signal! We should have a complete scan of the surface just in time for the Horizon to arrive!”
The Relay-Scan probe continues it’s orbit around Slate! In 106 days it will be joined in the Sarnus system by DSV-3 Horizon!
