Vehicle Orbital Landing challenge

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Description: You have to create a vehicle inside a box (Made of whatever you want) that survives reentry from 1km above the end of the atmosphere and the start of space (The box must reenter from extremely low orbit), and deploys the vehicle intact from at least 500m above the ground (The box doesn't have to survive though).

It must weigh a maximum of 1500 tons, and you do not have to build a launch vehicle (You can just hyperedit the thing into orbit)


1: No mods (Except hyperedit for getting the thing into orbit)

2: No debug mode (Nothing, just, nothing, no part clipping, nothing)

3: Do not put any engines on the box other than 4 "Flea" SRBs

And finally, post a video or at least a few screenshots of it.

It weighs just under 1.5 tons (2.6 tons if you count the engine I used to lower the box into the atmosphere, but I jettisoned that engine before re-entering the atmosphere). This is definitely not because I misread the weight requirement.
