First scansat satellite!

Recommended Posts

I made my first scansat satellite! I really like it! It's a temporary orbit because it goes 5 KM below atmosphere. But should survive a fair bit of orbits. I love it!

@Mr. Quark Hint: it will survive for quite a bit of time if you will not switch to it when it's below 70 Km.

Unloaded objects are on-rails in KSP, so even with Pe in the atmosphere, craft will not be affected by drag when you watch it from the Tracking Station. Just note that any on-rails object around Kerbin gets deleted once it gets below 25 Km altitude.

Eh I meant it for realism, it burned up hours ago anyways.
