  1. The ability to cannibalize Moho to build a Dyson Sphere
  2. Mission 186: Taiko Base modules 03+04+05 (MIKU-22+23+24) Launch mass was 42723 kg but skycranes weren't fully fueled (when full, the mass is 46323 kg). Had to refill at the WiM-14 depot. Mission 187: Negi Star flight 21 Catxy, Anberta, Janayne, Minidou, Edster, and Harski Kerman Mission 188: Iwahoshi Maru flight 01 (Part 1) Y50, D105 (Taiko base module launch) Y50, D125 (Negi Star flight 21) Y50, D135 (Iwahoshi Maru Kerbin -> Dres) Y51, D76 (estimated Dres insertion) Meanwhile: Y50, D224 (Nozomi Maru Duna -> Kerbin) Mission 189: Negi Star flight 22 Dilsby, Joan, Natazy, Camberry, Tedcan, and Natarie Kerman Mission 190: Tachi Maru flight 04 (Part 1) Y50, D280 (Negi Star flight 22) Y50, D292 (Tachi Maru Kerbin -> Duna) Y51, D110 (estimated Duna insertion)
  3. I am still doing inner system colonization for now but I will put a cap (depending on the size of the planet or moon) so that I don't have to keep doing it forever. For example, the Duna base will have a maximum of 24 Kerbals, while Dres will have a maximum of 12.
  4. At least they live near the most interesting part.
  5. Y48, D419 - Akagi Base has been expanded with two more modules (crew to arrive later). The crew also has a long range exploration rover available now.
  6. Mission 184: Akagi Base modules 06+07 (MIKU-20+21) + Duna Land Cruiser The next set of modules for the Duna base, along with a large scientific rover (capable of much longer ranges and higher speeds compared to the rover on the first crewed Duna mission). (42993 kg; K-2 launch vehicle) Mission 185: Nozomi Maru flight 04 Y48, D195 (module launch) Y48, D216 (Nozomi Maru Kerbin -> Duna) Y48, D419 (Nozomi Maru Duna insertion) Meanwhile: Y48, D345 (Tachi Maru Kerbin insertion) Current status of Akagi Base [I'm not really going to do anything with the rover right now. Just pretending that the base crew has a practical long-range exploration vehicle.]
  7. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first humans on the Moon, I decided to send some of my Mun base crew to that one easter egg. (easter egg spoilers below)
  8. Y48, D132 (Tachi Maru Duna -> Kerbin) Y48, D165 (Iwahoshi Maru Kerbin insertion) A Munar Anomaly Y48, D168 An anomaly was discovered on the Mun, just a few hundred kilometers from Hope Base 2. Katdi, Miruki, Giechelle, Engar, Bildard, Kerigh decided to investigate, taking off in Moon Rabbit 4. (spoiler for easter egg below)
  9. Y46, D357 - The Negi Maru departs for Sarnus (Outer Planets Mod), and will reach the ringed planet in about 4.5 years. This is the third "Project DIVA F" (Designing Interplanetary Vehicle Architecture with Fission propulsion) mission.
  10. Mission 182: Negi Star flight 20 (Part 1) Camlorf, Tiella, Anelle, Thomwell, Julphia, Negy, Agaselle, and Lisliana lift off for the first crewed Sarnus expedition. Y46, D345 (launch) With RTGs replacing the fuel cell, this spaceplane will remain in orbit until the crew returns. Mission 183: Project DIVA F 3rd / Negi Maru flight 03 (Part 1) Designing Interplanetary Vehicle Architecture with Fission propulsion, 3rd mission. Sarnus 5 expedition with 8 Kerbals - going twice as far as Jool. Y46, D357 (departure) Y50, D240 (course correction) Y51, D164 (estimated Sarnus orbit insertion) The burn was about 23 simulated minutes, and involved a massive plane change.
  11. Y46, D333 - The population of Akagi Base on Duna grows from 6 to 12
  12. Mission 180: Tachi Maru flight 03 (Part 1, Part 2) Hansey, Gixie, Tanie, Donry, Heltris, and Urliana become the second crew to live on Duna (Akagi Base) Y46, D331 (Duna insertion) Y46, D333 (Arrival of crew at base) LKO population: 24 Mun population: 12 Minmus population: 12 Ike population: 6 Duna population: 6 -> 12 Dres population: 6
  13. Y46, D300 - Launch of the Sarnus Rabbit 1 and 2 landers to the Negi Maru (interplanetary exploration flagship)
  14. Mission 181: Sarnus Rabbit 1 + 2 Sarnus Rabbit 1 is a lander designed for the moons of Sarnus without an atmosphere. It has a fully enclosed cabin unlike the exposed command seat of the Jool Rabbit 1. To land on Slate, it has a crasher stage that will jettison before the soft landing. Sarnus Rabbit 2 is intended for Tekto, like Jool Rabbit 2 was for Laythe. Tekto has lower gravity, so only one aerospike is needed instead of two. (62735 kg at launch; K-2 launch vehicle) Y46, D300 (launch) Preparing to load the Negi Maru
  15. First interplanetary orbiter - Duna First interplanetary landing - Eve First crewed interplanetary mission - Gilly
