If you have a structural fuselage with radiators around it and the small gray striped adapter on top, you should be fine, should contain LS if you use a LS mod.

Eh, I don't like it. Can I launch the mobile lab instead?

OK, you can do that, but make it covered with radiator to look white and without windows

hi everyone, i'll make this, preparing delta IV for EFT-1, do you require images?

also, for more realism i'll make this unmanned, i designed my orion replica for that

@Spaceman17 I'd ask for images so I can verify if you counted the points correctly. You can make a video if you want, but visual proof is required. Looking forward to see your entry.

well here is. but i can't get onto 58000000 m of ap due to it is going to mean that i'm going out of kerbin's SOI, so i did it to 2,600,000 of ap

also i'm using 0.90.

you can check that everything is ok by checking the timing of the mission

also you now know how will be in the future my orion, the service stage and the cryiogenic stage

PD: this kerbal in the map view is someone i leave there for know where is the ksc

@sevenperforce Progress?

I'll get around to it. Just wasn't much to differentiate each mission.

@Spaceman17 Yes, you're now eligible for EM-1. Also, why are you using 0.90?

my pc is quite bad, if i use any newer version it will crash.

also i will do that ASAP cause i can't wait for the europa clipper, it's the first time i make a succesfull trip to jool, and i made the entire SLS fleet (the five) only for this challenge. after that i can't wait for the DSG build, i really want to go to duna

also why are you selecting laythe as europa, cause vall is most similar to europa that laythe:

laythe=titan

vall=europa

tylo=ganymede

bop=amalthea

pol=something in a far away orbit in jupiter

 

also what badge i have to use, your design badget or the badget of sevenperforce

Doesn't matter which badge you use. I chose Laythe as Europa because it, like Europa, could possibly support life..

well, here is my em-1

i have issues with time warping so i had to make a second orbit before reentry, also had issues with the second cubesat, i hadn't time for deploying sp

also both cubesats (active and inactive) are in kerbin orbit with eventual mun encounters. where i extract science.

now with images:

preparing all the crewmembers and the rocket for the launch

CJVRs4j.png

launching first time SLS with MPCV

0e7ewkN.png

burning to get into orbit

f7LYk8k.png

burning for get to mun

jXCmIye.png

after the burn the crew has to wait one day to get to mun

Wv12SRy.png

once in mun the crew members deploys sucsessfully the first cubesat probe, to gather data about mun's graviti field

tzCy0al.png

the crew remotely controls the probe to make all the experiments

BJUIBq1.png

deploying failed the second probe, the solar pannels don't oppened at time to make the probe work

L82tcJw.png

after wait a few hours the crew finaly arrives at kerbin again, awaiting for the slowing burn

YHd6ipr.png

the service module helps to slow down the crew safely

VU3jSTP.png

the service module detaches at 40 km before reentry

JXcf6Mj.png

after reentry all the crew are scared, but the parachutes are deployed

YeeGIJS.png

finaly they are safe, and in their faces now are a smile

@HiThere!2 What mod do you use for the Orion itself? 

P.S. Whenever I try to fly a rocket in RO, it stays on the launchpad from having an extremely low TWR (not on purpose) even though it looks fine.

Sorry for the late reply, but the Orion capsule is from SSTU and the SM is from SLS parts pack.

And did you install MechJeb? that'll help you check the TWRs.

I'll get started on EM-1 ASAP, I feel kinda bad now.

Okay, I got my EFT-1 mission.

SLS on the pad.

Then It launches up

Booster seperation

The main booster Keeps firing (It was actually quite over powered).

Orbital Insertion Burn

First Orbit

Then Boost up to 580 km

580 Km (as you can see) Second Orbit

2nd Stage Seperation

Reentry

And Finally Parachute deployment!

So, In all, Unmanned Orion +5 

Delta IV heavy launcher +15

Very Accurate Orbiting +30

and LES + Cover +10. (Please let me Know if i did something wrong.:D EDIT: I hid RTGs in the probe core without thinking, so no "Batteries only" for me. :blush:

well, in EFT-1 i got MECO almost in orbit. the Delta IV is OP in KSP

also how is possible that if i'm getting ready for Europa Clipper, @HiThere!2 is still in EM-1?

I forgot about this challenge a bit before I did EM-1, but I'm finished now, so I'll be moving onto that tomorrow.

@Bottle Rocketeer 500The real EM-1 won't capture into Lunar Orbit, doesn't have enough dV, I didn't wither, does that mean I have to redo the mission?

Where did you find that out? It captures into an elliptical Lunar orbit.

@Spaceman17 You can start Laythe Clipper

The Service Module won't have enough fuel when launching on an SLS Block 1 to capture and have enough margin to return for NASA to allow that to happen.

Can you please give evidence of that?

Look, if you want to remove points then go ahead, but as far as I know, they will not be capturing into a Lunar orbit.

I won't remove points for what you did.
