The second MunSat is launched – with the two satellites scientists hope that the entire surface of Mun can be communicated with! Next up.. a probe to Mun! Engineers release plans for the Scout probe…. an unmanned lander that should test the feasibility of landing Kerbals on Mun!
Year 2, Day 35
MunSat arrives at Mun, and is quickly ordered into a polar orbit!
MunSat was launched with plenty of fuel to spare… interstellar communications is still a pretty new concept! Meanwhile, another MunSat is prepared for launch at the Space Center – MunSat 2!
Year 2, Day 34
MunSat launches on top of a Discovery Rocket! After orbit is achieved, the solar arrays and communications systems are rbought online…
MunSat begins its automated trip to Mun!
Year 2, Day 26
Construction begins on a new series of satellites – MunSat! Unsurprisingly, these will provide (hopefully) an extension of the KerbSat communications network to Mun, allowing future missions there to be safer and certainly much chattier!
The two satellites are identical to the KerbSat satellites, except that they will be launched on Discovery Rockets, instead of Horizons.
