Welcome everyone ! In this thread I'll review my (second) take on the famous STS Challenge.
My first participation was more than a year ago, and I'm starting a new one, which shall include many things I've learned about building rockets since then.
I'm focusing on modules integration, packaging solutions and good-looking contraptions more than trying to be as realistic as possible.
There is no mods in this sandbox but Chatterer.
This might be pic heavy because
STS 5 : Space Station !
STS 5 to 8 missions are about assembling a space station built with 4 modules. (Propulsion, Habitat and two for Science)
I chose to build it around Minmus because no mission are currently proposed near this moon. This flight is performed on the new ShOrPaEXT, a vacuum variant with no jet engines and 1k3+ dV on WolfHounds. TWR is approx. 0.5 and it's more confortable to perform long burns from Kerbin (to Mun or Duna for example).
