1.from orbit of Eve to Eve? 

2. from orbit of Eve to Kerbin?

3. What mean suborbital trajectory????????? it is under 70km of Kerbin/90 km of Eve (if it is really Eve landing point)???? or it is any suborbital trajectory????? reentry at 2200m/s and 1000m/s is a great heat difference???? So if .... i fall from Eve to Kerbin I can change suborbital trajectory????

4. Or challenge is to test our telepathic abilities to verify what it all means??? :)))))

I'm quite sure he means land an unmanned probe from low orbit without using parachutes or engines. Sub-orbital is sub-orbital, it doesn't matter what trajectory. Don't complicate this challenge for yourself. I may attempt this, I already have a lifter more than capable of getting me to low Eve orbit without cheats.

@cratercracker I don't seem to be able to view it.

The picture shows up with grey minus sign.

 

Hang on a second.

+1 no problem to make rocket/ssto/spaceplane/shuttle to send something to any planet. but don't have time... really

ps: maybe i also land something later ... or even this  craft from Eve to Kerbin... but IRL time... :( 

pps: i like hypersonic craft... so i try to find time...

Well I attempted Insane and let's just say it didn't go as planned... I can also safely say that I will never try that again. At least I did get a comm sat into high Eve orbit. That will come in useful later if I attempt an elcana circumnavigation in the future.

My brick has landed in the KSC complex between the runway, launch pad and VHB building. Mass on entering the atmosphere: 180kg. Final Mass as landed: 105kg. No parachutes, no heat shields, no ablator used. Stock parts and no cheats, with standard re-entry heating in KSP v1.3.1.

Not sure if this is intermediate or hard - no engines, parachutes, or wings - anyway my best attempt so far...

Rentry burn complete engines away:

Cleared mountains, KSC in sight but not going to be able to land there:

It's basically a glorified elementary school egg drop challenge, but... 

I s'pose  it's different; have fun with it!

Do basic fins count as wings, and do heat shields without ablative material count as heat shields against my score?

OK, so this is my first ever challenge entry, so here goes....

(It qualifies for the hard category, I think)

5 parts (RoveMate probe core, reaction wheel, 2 edge radiator panels, and a 1x6 solar panel,) 0.27 tons

OK, time to launch this thing to Eve, and see what happens:o

Yes for the first question, and No for the other one.
