  1. I know there is "fiction" in "science-fiction" but honestly, scenarists these days... "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will flee to Jupiter's moon, Io." I laughed so hard. It should have been: "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will commit suicide." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will rid of itself in an unnecessarily expensive way." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will run for the ultimate Darwin Award." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will flee to a colder, toxic, volcanic and seismically hyperactive, radioactive sh*thole orbiting around a big-ass asteroid magnet." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will find the remedy against dangerous stupidity." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will save the environment." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will make aliens laugh a lot." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity still hasn't discovered gravity turns." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will develop the technology to mass emigrate to a super hostile world but will never think about cleaning their room." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will do something only a clueless scenarist can think of." "In the near future, Earth will become toxic. Humanity will make no flipping sense." Most of us know that already so, I'll make it easier for the few visitors who don't understand the rant: Io : Those are volcanoes. This moon is covered in sulfur. Wherever you are, you are threatened by volcanoes, ground quakes, radiation levels that will kill you quickly, the extra thin atmosphere consists in sulfur dioxide that is both toxic and corrosive, and if you've survived so far, there's only the biggest planet of the solar system that will slingshot comets and asteroids in your face juuuust nextdoor. In fact you're orbiting it, if you're on Io. So you'd better stay home on Earth and clean it. You have much better chances there. C'MOOOOOON.
  2. I sort of want Laythe to be replaced with a volcanic body like Io's, with the same diameter and same gravity.
  3. The volcanoes rumble. The radiation strikes the surface. The Great Red Spot is almost directly overhead. There is a constant rain of sulfur and other materials from the sky. In the distance, Europa drifts slowly along with it in the resonance. That place, is Io. Io is the main objective of this mission report. The main goal is to land (and hopefully return) a kerbal to Earth. From there, an outpost will be made to help any missions to Jupiter. Io will be a great place to explore. Day 1: Within our Grasp Although seeing Io at least from afar did not happen, this mission proved that Jupiter is within our grasp. We can get there, but can we get to Io? The only reason for not seeing Io was solar power. I now know the true power of RTGs. Hopefully tomorrow, we can see the plumes over the surface. But of course, failures are expected. It will be a while before a kerbal can walk on Io, and a base is set up. I don't have time to add titles or descriptions to the pictures. Let us hope for a better tomorrow. Day 2: Io See you! We saw Io! Although it was from very far away. After harnessing the true power (lol) of RTGs, the probe kept functioning long into the flight. After the transfer burn, the probe drifted along the void. Io was only a yellow dot on the cameras, but it won't be next mission. Hopefully. Jupiter looks cool too. The modified Jupiter rocket, modeled after the 2nd version, does not fuel. A new rocket must be designed to at least orbit Io. Tomorrow or the next day, my friends.
