In the passenger module are Jebediah, Bill and Bob. They will control the Duna Landing Vehicle (DLV) and are now preparing for the critical mission.

In the Cupola module sits Maxigh Kerman, communications director. 
She will maintain contact with Mission Control through the mission and with the DLV 
because Mission Control is to far away for a direct connection.

And last but not least in the medical bay is doctor Tribel Kerman. 
She will monitor the physical status of the other kerbonauts.

In the next part the Dunares will head to Duna and Jeb has a problem... Stay tuned!

Oh great... Jeb has a problem usually means Jeb blows up the ship. Oh well... Any explosion you can float away from is good one right?

Hello fellow kerbonauts!!!

The second part of the Dunares mission is finally here!!

Part 2:Duna transit and Jeb has a problem


Its been a few days in wich the brave kerbonauts have orbited 
their homeplanet Kerbin and made preperations before the transferwindow.

Valentina Kerman grabs the intercom:

"Allright guys! Within two orbits from now we will begin our transferburn towards Duna! 
Maxigh, set up a direct link with Mission Control in the KSC. 
We have the data for the autopilot burn but we need backup info. 
We also need the go ahead from Mission Control"

lBQS6ou.png


"Hadmin and Neldon, you have got the settings for the autopilot and everything should be fine. 
If there's anything wrong, don't hesitate to react. Keep a sharp eye on any irregularity."

Two orbits later:

Valentina Kerman:"Let's do it!"

Hadmin Kerman:"Autopilot enabled, ship is on course, pilot is ready!"

UHT6Y6v.png


Valentina Kerman:"Requesting go for transitburn"

Mission Control:"Go ahead!"


The whole ship shakes as it trembles under the mighty engines.

Mission Control:"Allright Dunares, you are under way! 
We'll check in on you guys later on. Mission Control out."

The crew sees their homeplanet and the lovely Mün dissapear...

They are now under way to the unknown planet Duna...

 

 

 


The crew is now a few days underway in the trip to Duna.

 

Jebediah Kerman:"Hey Val, can I talk to you for a second?"

Valentina Kerman:"Of course Jeb, what's up"

Jebediah Kerman:"Ehm.. I have to show you"

Valentina Kerman:"Okay, let's go then!"

They put on their EVA suits and go outside to the rear cargo bay and Jeb opens it

Jebediah Kerman:"Look, this is the problem"

Valentina Kerman:"What? Is there is something wrong with the DLV???"

Jebediah Kerman:"Yes.. very wrong, it has to few boosters, it need moar"

l2mlenL.png


Valentina Kerman:"Jeb... it has far enough DeltaV to bring you down and up from Duna!"

Jebediah Kerman:"What's a deltavee?"

Valentina Kerman:"It's Delta... V! It means the differince in speed. 
It's a measuring for spacecraft to measure theire range"

Jebediah Kerman:"Why don't you measure in boosters?"

Valentina Kerman:"It doesn't work like that"

Jebediah Kerman:"Well, but it needs moar!!"

Valentina Kerman:"Jeb, we can't right now, we are already underway remember"

Jebediah Kerman:"Oh yeah that's true..."

MBmBE1Q.png


Valentina Kerman:"But I asked for more boosters back on Kerbin but they wouldtn't build them"

Jebediah Kerman:"You did??"

Valentina Kerman:"I did... for you!"

Jebediah Kerman:"Thank you.. you are moar nicer than I thought"

Valentina Kerman:"Thank you Jeb, shall we go inside and start planning the Duna landing?"

Jebediah Kerman:"Yeees!"

Hello fellow kerbonauts!!!

 

It's been a while but I was a little busy these days,

but here is the part III!!

 

 

Part 3:Duna arrival and preparations

 

The crew of the Dunares are underway to Duna and have to test the DLV.
The plan is to undock, manoeuver and redock te DLV. 

J7KQoiU.png

 

Maxigh sets up an connection and a direct TV-link with mission control to supervise and directly evaluate the test.
Jeb, Bob and Bill take their places in the DLV and the doors open up.

Valentina Kerman grabs the intercom:"Allright boys! You are all set?"

Jeb replies with a brief answer: "Yeep!"

EJomhBI.png

 

Val: "Undock!!"

Bill: "We are undocked!"

vsiYi0T.png

 

The DLV slowly floats away from the Dunares.

Jeb: "All systems are working sweet like a baby!"

Bill: "No complications here"

eulM1qP.png

 

Val: "Allright boys, good work! That's good for now, come back in!"

Jeb: "That's what she..."

Val: "Shut it Jeb, just redock it without a scratch"

J40gnW8.png

 

Jebediah takes his job very seriously as he manoeuvres the DLV smooth 
back in the bay and Bill redocks it quickly.

And the DLV is again a part of the Dunares again! 
The test is carried out smoothly and Mission Control content with the results.
As Jeb, Bill and Bob go to the passenger module to evaluate the mission with Val and
Mission Control, the cargo bay slowly close.

After a while the Dunares has almost entered the sphere of influence of Duna.
A sharp eye on board of the Dunares can allready spot the red planet.

K4BozY3.png

 

Ten days later Duna is almost within arm's reach. 
The crew and Mission Controlis prepare the orbit insertion to circualize Duna.

Val: "All set?"

Hadmin: "Go!"

Neldon: "Go!"

Mission Control: "It's a go for the insertion burn!!"

Val: "Gooo!"

After the burn, the Dunares now officially is a moon of 
Duna as it orbits the beautiful and both deadly red planet...

And that's it for this episode! 
Next time Jeb, Bill and Bob will land on Duna and discover this new unknown world!

Hello fellow kerbonauts!!!

Here is the part IV of the Dunares Mission!!

Part 4:Duna descent and discovery


It's been a few hours after the orbit insertion around Duna 
and Mission Control has sent their data for a suitable landing site.

lnr0Dme.png

 

Jebediah Kerman:"Val! Bill, Bob and I are ready!"

Valentina Kerman:"Allright Jeb, the bay is opening, you can go whenever you're ready!"

Jebediah Kerman:"Undock!"

keqqWos.png


The DLV floats away from her mothership...

XOwdVeJ.png

 

Bill Kerman:"We are undocked and floating away from the ship!"

Jebediah Kerman:"Prepare for deceleration burn!"

The DLV is now slowing down to lower her periapsis just above Duna's atmosphere

nHhYq0d.png

 


At the dark side, Jeb reduces the speed of the lander even more to enter Duna's deadly atmosphere..

kfS0M7v.png

 


The DLV hits the atmposhere and slows down even more

ieGwV4s.png

 


"Fire the engine!!" yells Jeb in order to reduce the chance of ripping the parachutes apart.

StIgmuW.png

 


Jebediah Kerman:"Now!"

The parachute opens up and the boys squeeze together by the g-forces as the craft loses her last terminal velocity.

gy8oaKP.png

3F3ZZWO.png

 


The landing legs are lowered

KwNJqvo.png

 


And the crew see the Duna surface slowly becoming closer and closer...

He3oX8C.png

 


Moments before impact, Jeb urges to fire the engine one last time to help 
the parachutes slow the craft down for a soft landing..

b8tvsI2.png

 


And with a blast, the DLV lands on the Duna surface

ebo1N45.png

 

For the first time ever, the Kerbal landed on a new planet. 
As part of the bigger mission to colonize the rest of the universe!

X6Pa3ht.png

 


As commander, Jebediah Kerman has the honour of planting the flag (and his foot) on Duna!

After a while of walking around and enjoying the violent and deadly atmosphere of Duna,
Jeb realizes that he misses someone...

Jebediah Kerman:"Hey Bill, where's Bob??"

Bill Kerman:"No idea, but propably wandering around somewhere.."


And yes, Bob was going for an adventure and discovered loads of sand! 

MuBIHX0.png

 

Afther he hears Jeb talking to Bill where he is, 
he turnes his head and realizes he went a little far.
The DLV is now only a little dot at the horizon...

a2qxpd4.png

 


Boof!!! Jeb and Bill hear a thud behind them and sea Bob rolling towards them.

Jebediah Kerman:"Where were you??"

Bob Kerman:"I've found loads of sand!!!"

Jebediah Kerman:"Very interesting! But we have to go, we have to head back to the Dunares for a mission report.
And we have limited supplies here"

The crew goes back in the DLV and Jebediah turns his head to look one last time at this beautiful red planet...

XTEm2BT.png

 


The solar panels and ladders retract and the DLV is moments away before she begins here way home...

But that is for another episode!!


Stay tuned!

thanks! 

I'm using free IVA for the images in the ship.

And for the computer monitors I use RasterPropMonitor!

 

Grtz,
