Jeb's worst nightmare

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I tried to make a rocket to reach orbit or sub-orbit (at least) in RSS but couldn't. So I just downloaded a Falcon 9 Dragon from somebody (I don't remember) and loaded it up.

Liftoff starts well.



After 2 and a half minutes (I think so) stage 1 were seperated



But then, something went wrong.

One of the tanks exploded a little which caused the whole ship to loose control. This forced me to abort the mission.


I fired up the draco engines to reduce the speed of the capsule.

Again, something went horribly wrong. The draco engines ran out of fuel. And they are no parachutes on the dragon. So there is only one option : doing an EVA


^ Image above shows dragon capsule exploded (right)

So I (no, Jeb) prepared for the worst.


 ^ Jeb was falling down very fast

Jeb plummeted to the ground at approx 50 m/s

Luckily I reverted the flight to the beginning, and Jeb was safe. :)
