Year 7, Day (Kerbol Two Solar Research Probe Launches!)

screenshot133.pngThe mighty Jool II Rocket blasts off, carrying the Kerbol 2 Two Solar Probe into orbit!


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 6, Day 328 (Kerbol 1 Manuever)

kerbol 1

Kerbol One fires its engines to maneuver for its approach to the sun!


While the fate of the Kerbol 1 probe is almost certain, the exact time communications will be lost, and at what proximity to the star is unknown. KSEA hopes that a lot of interesting science can be transmitted before the probe is lost!


The final boost stage is ejected, and the probe hurdles toward the sun! In roughly 90 days we should know if the probe is successful!
