KSEA and KOAA both worked on the Solar Research Probe, which should allow unparalleled looks at Kerbin’s sun, Kerbol!

KSEA also hopes that the Atomic Rocket Motor-based design and an all new Probe layout will provide the blueprint for future missions! screenshot143.png

Kerbol 2’s second stage fires, which will take the craft out of Kerbin’s sphere of gravity into Solar orbit!  screenshot144.png

The protective fairings eject!

In 15 days the craft will maneuver for Kerbol itself! The solar arrays and communications dish fully deploy.

Year 7, Day 345 (Kerbol Two Solar Probe Designed)

A joint effort between KSEA (the Kerbin Space Exploration Administration) and KOAA (the Kerbin Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) has led to the development of the next solar probe, Kerbol Two!

With greater heat shielding and with the increased range of the massive Jool II rocket combined with the very efficient Atomic Rocket Motor this new solar probe has nearly twice the range of the previous Kerbol One probe!
