A Nebula Rocket that had been prepared for a Crew Vehicle launch is quickly retrofitted with an experimental new payload: the DSV Supply Craft! Designed to carry a versatile payload to the bay of Horizon Class DSVs, delivering fertilizer to Kerbitat One should be a good first test!
The Nebula Rocket blasts off!
The payload detaches, and the first stage turns around and heads back to KSC! The DSV Supply Craft continues it’s launch to orbit!
The spacecraft approaches Kerbitat One…
… and docks!
Back at Spacedock, Aurora 26 departs for Kerbitat One!
“Hopefully that fertilizer does the trick!” -Edan
Edan brings Aurora 26 into alignment with Kerbitat One, and docks!
“Looks like a good connection! Let’s get that fertilizer transferred over too!” -Gilian
The Kerbals begin unloading the payload from the service vehicle, and Samner studies the plants. The crew waits patiently… until after many hours have passed….
“It’s working! It’s working! The plants are growing! I had to use water from our crew vehicle to start the processes, but it looks like it’s going! That means we’ll need to leave before long, but there should be enough water to run the greenhouse for a while!” -Samner
After the successful mission, the crew begins preparations for heading home!
KSEA releases designs for it’s next orbital science experiment… Kerbitat One! station will be part of the next Aurora launch, Aurora 26 and will see if the new greenhouse module is capable of supporting Kerbals as a long term self-sustaining life support option.
