Stupid Kerbal Tricks Challenge

Recommended Posts

        OK the scenario is: You have placed a satellite in orbit around Duna consisting of the following:

1 basic okto probe core

2 HG-55 antennas

2 thermometers

1 Oscar-B fuel tank, full

1 Ant engine

2 OX-STAT photovoltaic panels

You also have available a number of landers on the surface of Duna, including one that has a wide selection of parts In inventory. You have a good engineer and KIS/KAS installed

 

Now this satellite is, of course, perfectly useless as a relay satellite and no one in his right mind would build one. (coff coff) let alone go to all the trouble of getting it to orbit around Duna, then spend 2 days trying to figure out why it won't relay anything. Well, almost no one.

Anyhow, the challenge is to come up with a use for the damn thing. Best answer gets a pat on the back, an uptick on their post and a mantra suitable for recitation in a hard vacuum.

You could crash it, and get science with the thermometers in Duna’s different levels of atmosphere if you haven’t already. The tricky part is the transmit it quick enough and make sure you have connection to the KSC.
