Ho Lam Kerman, that is amazing. Did you find the Curiosity camera arm stuck in the rock?

 

Yes, it's in a spoiler. I visited every anomaly on Duna.

As this is a Heritage Challenge and OP is kicking about still, I feel honored to announce my completion of a Duna Elcano!  It initially started as an entry to one of @Death Engineering's fantastic challenges, and as such the mission report is in large part a Duna Von Braun mission, but I threw in an Impromptu Elcano as well :)

Mission Statistics:

  • Version - Stock 1.7.0
  • Wet weight - 198.585t
  • Dry weight - 124.575t
  • Total mission cost - 293,809 snacks
  • Propellant mass fraction - 0.3726867588
  • Mass per crew - 33.0975
  • Science points - This is not a science mission

Crew Manifest:

  • Gusbert Kerman - Scientist
  • Hans Kerman - Scientist
  • Kagas Kerman - Pilot
  • Ragas Kerman - Pilot
  • Endous Kerman - Engineer
  • Dudgar Kerman - Engineer

Here's a couple of photos to whet the appetite:

Claw (former staff member afaik) did it on every planet and moon in the stock game.

 

While I am not actively managing it you are more than welcome to try it out. Do it for your own enjoyment though, no prize other than bragging rights. Remember this will take a long time since you can basically only do rover speed/boat speed since flying isn't allowed.

I just sent out my second-ever manned Duna expedition.  In the six-ship fleet a rover is one of the primary payloads.  I might try my hand there over the next months.

Hey @rkarmark I made a chart with the average times to complete this challenge:

This could be useful on the OP to give potential challengers a sense of how big a commitment this is.

Wait, does this mean you can't get a badge?

@Kerminator1000  I'll be claiming my badge (Kerbin, land) when I finish.  The list of people who have completed circumnavigations in the first post hasn't been updated in years, so I wouldn't take it as an "official list" of who's completed the challenge and is entitled to a badge.

Side note:  @rkarmark Does that mean that you're looking for a new manager for this challenge?

You’ve accidentally written Pol’s radius instead of its equatorial circumference.

To be safe, you have to post both, or keep priority on this thread first, then the Mission Report.

Or you could copy the whole post (yes, Edit Mode then copy everything) and paste it here as a post.
