In the VAB
This Standart Mainsail-Poodle 2 Stage Rocket will take my probe into it's journey.
Second Stage and Probe
Due to the Klaw Jr. being placed at the bottom of the probe, i had to build a pretty interesting arrangement to hold the probe in place.
Despite having left Kerbin's SOI, it is still barely visible.
I was about to do one of the last burns using the second stage of the launcher.
You can see the potential targets' orbits.
We can still see the second stage in behind the asteroid.
I1 for Infinity 1, the mission's name, and 1 for the first destination.
I came back in Kerbin's SOI temporarily, to fling me toward my next target.
Matching velocities With the next target.
Say hi to I1 - 2!
The second destination is a slightly larger asteroid.
Comet Kennard-Obford-Tombree 1
This Intermediate period comet is the next destination for Infinity 1.
Swing Past Kerbin
This was a by-product of my velocity matching I1 - 2, which was in a Kerbin Encounter Trajectory.
The Big Burn
A huge burn to get an encounter with Kennard-Obford-Tombree 1 (which i'll refer to at K-O-T 1 from now on).
The comet was visible, but was not emitting a Plasma Tail yet.
There it is.
The Plasma Tail was a little shy and appeared late, but it was just as beautiful as usual.
Finally After nearly a full orbit i was approaching K-O-T 1.
At this point i was entering the comet's Coma, this was nearly the image i'd select for my flagship patch.
But this one's better
I decided to pick this image as the one in my flagship patch, no need to add the probe onto it either since it's already there.
Instead of making the comet's name I1 - C1, i decided to add it as a prefix.
A tiny Planet
Dres, the forgotten planet, even this mission won't study it in detail, only it's scattered ring of asteroids.
Chapter one Complete
And the arrival at I1 - 3(D) marks the end of this first chapter of the Infinity 1 Mission. It is already Flagship level. In Chapter 2, i will go to many Dresteroids to get large amounts of Data on this mysterious feature in a very high orbit of Dres.
@The Doodling Astronaut
The probe's Twin Ion Engines allow for more thrust, and is very useful even with Persistent Thrust Mod.
