Ministry of no better things to do has decided to fund yet another project to try to establish the closest safe distance from Kerbol for unmanned vessels, and to test their performance as part of a longterm study of the effects of solar wind on materials and structures. The probe was named after Eugene Karker-Kerman, notable Kerbal heliophysicist who hypothesized that Kerbol is smelly in all observable directions. Notable mods and add-ons: Probes plus, Hullcamera VDS, Kerbalism, Mandatory RCS, Solar science, Making history DLC The probe established its first perihelion of less than 0.6 million kilometres above Kerbol by thrusting to counteract Kerbin's movement. Initial perihelion was closer to the star than the overbaked dwarf planet (naked planetary core) Ablate, but it still performed well. Several more swings are planned, each approaching closer and closer to the star.
