Year 7, Day 264 (Jool Surveyor Pol Fly-By!)

screenshot102.pngInstruments record that Goo Scans are… unusual to say the least. Tentacles grow up from the goo, reaching up, then break off.  Bizarre, but fascinating!


As the probe passes over Pol’s highlands, gravity scans indicate multiple layers on the world’s surface.


Electricity this far out is proving to be the mission’s main obstacle, transmissions require a great deal of the craft’s power!


The onboard multi-spectral scanner is also able to get the first close look at the surface! Future passes will hopefully add to the data and help create a full picture of the surface.

In all, a very successful start to the Jool Surveyor mission!


Year 5, Day 92 (New Surveyor Probes Commissioned!)

KSEA commissions the development of several new Surveyor class deep space probes – Neidon Surveyor, Urlum Surveyor, Sarnus Surveyor, and the Jool Surveyor.  Like Duna Surveyor, these deep space probes are designed to map the surface of deep space bodies to allow a more scientific approach to exploring space!
