Hey, here's an idea make a SLS rocket that cam perform EM-1 and EM-2

ALL STOCK!

must have be able to get orbit to be able to be qualified. Must have launch abort system.

 

 

EM-1 rules: Must be unmanned. Must gravity assist around the Mün to perform reentry. MUST SURVIVE REENTRY.

 

EM-2 rules: Must be manned. Must be able to intercept an asteroid and return with what would be a sample so strand a kerbal on the asteroid you want to intercept and pick the kerbal up and put them in a chair in a 2.5 meter service bay. No kerbals can die. Must survive reentry

The Asteroid Redirect Mission update gave us SLS parts, so it should not be too hard.

I already have one built! Pretty much for a basic you use two large kerbodyne fuel tanks a 2.5m to 3.25m adapter on top of those and a mammoth on the bottom with a two kickbacks.

Could you try thinking of some more rules for this challenge to make it a bit more unique? It's incredibly easy to make an SLS rocket - you literally just strap a mammoth to a couple of 3.25m tanks, an adapter, an upper stage and an upper stage.

Literally just SRBs with decouplers and Separatrons. My point still stands.

I added more rules to make it more interesting just reread to topic.

Must gravity turn around the Mün to perform reentry

So basically you want a free-return trajectory?

 

Also, currently my rocket's center of mass is way to low so it flips on gravity turn. I'm currently working on this and there will be more pictures soon.

UPDATE: Rocket flipping has been fixed! Took it out for a *spin* (no pun intended) and flies great, plenty of delta-v for a Munar Injection, unfortunately no pictures, as it was just a test run.

I've actually worked on an Ares replica & Orion Replica

complete with staged parachutes! :D

i couldn't tell if it was unmanned was EM-1 unmanned?

Yes i put a thing up without the HUD to show it was unmanned and yes it did get into orbit.

can you put the craft file for that on kerbalx so I can download it? I plan on building my own for the challenge but I like the way that SLS rocket looks.
