Duna Outpost Mission, beauty pics only :)


Recommended Posts

Here's the first part of the relaxed mission I flew on the surface of Duna.

The goal was to use somewhat "realistic" crafts, like 2 seats / kerbal for interplatenary travel, lots of electric power, heat dissipation, shield against radiations .. and land a little outpost on Duna. :)

 

Part 1 : Kerbin maneuvers

 

Orbital station on launchpad :

Staging :

Station in space : It has many docks, small maneuvring capabilities, will also deploy a M700 and act as the main relay around Duna

Once in orbit, the crew ship turns around Apollo-style, to dock in front of the habs and transfer vehicle

 

Part 2 : Duna !

 

Habitat capturing :
