After weeks in orbit calibrating equipment and scouting out a new landing site, Mission Control gives the OK to land on Eeloo! Mitster and Kimmy board the lander and undock from Horizon’s payload bay!
“Decoupling lander… RCS only. Clearing payload bay…”
The lander drifts clear from Horizon!
“Scientific equipment is fully operational… recording data! The view is amazing!”
Once the craft is clear of Horizon, the lander fires it’s main engine to de-orbit and land!
“All systems nominal – landing sequence started.”
Back at mission Control, the time delayed transmission has everyone on the edge of their seat! This is the most distant landing ever attempted!
Mitster and Kimmy continue their descent, as the pearly surface of Eeloo gets closer and closer!
Mitster focuses on the landing as the craft gets closer and closer to the surface!
“Almost there! Landing gear is fully deployed and shows ready!”
The lander is mere seconds from touching down…
The lander touches down and makes contact with the Sarnusian moon of Eeloo! Kimmy looks out the window of the lander and is awestruck!
“Mission Control – this is Horizon lander. We have landed on Eeloo!”
Back on Kerbin, everyone in mission control cheers!
“Good work team! Let’s get that ladder down and see what we can find on Eeloo!”
