Year 21, Day 142 (Construction on New Eve Communications Network Begins!)

There has been renewed interest among researchers on Kerbin to explore one of the most hazardous planets: Eve! Missions to the cloudy purple planet have been frequently plagued by problems. The intense temperature, the high gravity, and the super dense atmosphere make Eve fairly easy for small spacecraft to land but nearly impossible for large vehicles set down – let alone take off from again!

To facilitate missions a new upgraded communications network is required, and with the upcoming window a Sarnus rocket will carry two small relay probes, identical to those carried by Aurora 23 for DSV-3 Horizon’s mission to Sarnus!

Year 7, Day 5 (Eve Communications Network Established)

screenshot232.pngIn order to prepare for future Eve missions, KSEA personnel have come up with a plan to use the existing assets at Eve, the Eve Explorer and  the Eve Surveyor, to create an Eve Communications Network.

The planned maneuvers go well – the first two research spacecraft at Eve will now serve a new purpose… paving a path for future exploration of the purple world!

The ECN should provide the groundwork for a future mission that KSEA has cryptically promised will really get things rolling on the exploration of Eve!
