Heracles Space Program

Hey y'all! 

i need some motivation, so i made this post to help detail my new save instead of dong whatever, this program is intended to be the first duna landing in JNSQ, but first we'll start with the Mun, with a station and a long term stay, then we can move onto phase 2: exploration of duna and the outer system

Question should i use some life support mods? 

I have some experience with kerbalisim, but i kind of want to try out snacks!

which do you prefer?

Chapter 1:

some lore for those who want it:

it's november 2023, it's been more then 60 years since the last kerbal set foot on the mun, and the president demanded change.  and so 4 years ago, the Heracles program passed congress and the plan was to use a single capsule for the mun, and any other destination that may come up. this capsule was named the Arcturu, which the LKO varient would be flown within the end of the year 2021, and the lunar by 2023, and yet clearly they were behind schedule, nevermind. 

the Arcturu Block 1was about to launch on it's first orbital flight, a high orbital unmanned test of the capsule.

the second stage of the Libra 1 is intended to also be capable of serving as a kick stage on future long range missions

the Arcturu fired it's engine for 1 minute and 49 seconds to place it into a 5,000,000 by 300,000 km orbit, the reason for the eccentric orbit is to simulate a mun return as on the later missions.

2 months later, the Munar rocket Artemis, is standing on the launchpad, ready for a test launch, as stated it will launch the upper stage of a Libra rocket, Libra IIA and the Arcturo capsule into LKO after which the Libra IIA would complete the Trans-munar injection burn.  today however,  the rocket was only equipped with a dummy Libra IIA and a boiler plate of the capsule.

dummy payload released, the Artemis has proved it's viability as Munar rocket.

the first launch will be the core module of the Liberity Munar station

I just started using kerbalism in a JNSQ playthrough recently and I have been enjoying the added complexities. I screwed up some calcs for a crewed mun mission and has to cut the mission shorter than planned, but was able to get everyone back without any fatalities.

 

I'd say go for it. maybe even KIS/KAS for in situ repairs.
