Well, I guess I'm done with the Mun challenges :)

Mun STS - 5 - 7

It's not my best design but at least, it is different :D
I screwed up a bit during STS - 6 (PPE) but ended with a pretty proud moment (shown in the clip below). There  is also a little, hidden 'issue', if you can find it, you'll get a cookie :)
Since uploading and describing screenshots is my least favourit part of a challenge (especially when it contains mutliple flights), I'll just post some highlights here. Any details can be found in the imgur album as usual ;)

My personal highlight during this mission:
While assembling the PPE, I've noticed that I forgot a second docking port I've decided to look for a more challenging way to dock parts together and ended with a pretty nice maneuver :)

Well, not going to spoil anything (just yet), but some of the guesses are... Interesting :D

Launching the shuttle from the back of an aircraft, while simultaneously launching its boosters from a submarine, and then docking them both together midflight and proceeding with the mission.

I like that idea, maybe for:

Well, I guess you are :)

I like the uncommon design, and the fact it works pretty well - how much hassle was it to get the CoM just right? Also, the MMU is really cute :) 

For the cookie part - is it the SAS settings? Other that that, I can't see anything unusual....

I'm a bit surprised noone took the more difficult way of doing the transfers from and to Mun, meaning straight to polar orbit/straight to atmo and landing. But when the machines are so powerful and have so much fuel to spare, I guess there's no point in doing so. It might be just my RSS/rescale reflex to avoid burning any fuel whenever possible :) 

Good job commander, here's your badge:

And I guess we're heading to Duna pretty soon? :)
