Launch 34 – Mun Refuel Station

Mun Refuel Station
Mass: 534.046
Cost: 185,401
Class: Gas Tank
Crew: None

Giving the Luma station the ability to help fuel future Mun flights for a long time. Attaching this large fuel canister to the Mun station will power 10’s if not 100’s of trips from surface to station.

Launch 32 – Planet Scanner

Planet Scanner
Mass: 166.221
Cost: 61,805
Class: Planet Scanner
Crew: None

We need to start thinking about making fuel while in space. Scanning big rocks for ore is the next step. Here’s our way of doing that.

Plus it has some relay dishes on the side.

Launch 30 – Anomaly Scanner

Anomaly Scanner
Mass: 194.882
Cost: 55,952
Class: Planet Scanner
Crew: None

On the hunt for the Green Monolith, found out that the rover block has 100% chance of showing an anomaly on the surface.

Launch 29 – Minmus Science Station

Minmus Science Station
Mass: 641.412
Cost: 162,966
Class: Minmus Station and Lander
Crew: Tedrim and Maya Kerman

We need some science, and we need it fast. Minmus is an untapped sphere of science.

We launched a science station with our best tech attached and our best pilot and scientist.

Launch 28 – Kerbal Pickup 2001 B

Kerbal Pickup 2001 B
Mass: 446.535
Cost: 104,990
Class: Kerbal Rescue Ship
Crew: None until two

This is the same ship as the Kerbal Pickup 2001, the only difference is the 12 boosters strapped to the 4 main boosters all fire at once instead of 12 then 4.

That minor change made this mission a success. We were able to rendezvous with the Kerbal Pickup 2000 and bring back the final Kerbals who got to touch the first asteroid.

Launch 26 – Kerbal Pickup 2000

Kerbal Pickup 2000
Mass: 511.853
Cost: 120,744
Class: Kerbal Rescue Ship
Crew: None until Two

When the team on the Sloth Scraper Asteroid Grabber disengaged from the rock and attempted to return home, only to find they only had enough fuel to end up in an orbit that wasn’t even close to home we all had some fear develop in our hearts.

Kerbals are not cheap and here at S.S.A. we care about our kerbalnaughts even if they didn’t cost us an arm and a leg.

This mission has a slowly ticking clock as the S.S.A.G. had an orbit that ran through the Mun’s orbit and at some point in the future the Mun would cross paths with the S.S.A.G. and ram right into the ship, or worse fling the ship into a Kerbal escape trajectory.

We were able to meet up with the S.S.A.G pickup the two Kerbals and get that orbit to a safer inner orbit. But still did not have enough fuel to get home.

Launch 25 – Sloth Scrapper Asteroid Grabber – II

Sloth Scrapper Asteroid Grabber – II
Mass: 396.6
Cost: 150,704
Class: Asteroid Grabber
Crew: Mumbro and Burdard Kerman

Once news of the asteroid rendezvous hit Kerbal we sent out a second ship in hopes of finding a smaller much more capture-able rock.

That excitement quickly faded when the launched ship failed to meet up with the rock that flew close to kerbal.
