BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The reason I call this first 'official' mission is because I have done a few practices before. One of them hit the face of Mun too hard, resulting in a crash. The others landed 'safely' but tipped over after landing, resulting a "no-return" to Kerbin (I have tried to apply full thrust and point above the horizon, but it crashed into the terrain).  The last one though, still tipped over after landing. But this time, I managed to bring it back into a stable orbit and return back to Kerbin. That means the latest prototype is worth enough for the real mission (There were two scrubbed prototypes). Of course, no Kerbonauts were injured or killed, thanks to the revert button done after each practice.

THE ROCKET

The rocket itself isn't much, it's powered by a bunch of boosters and designed to fit 2 crew (Jeb and Bob) using the MK1 command pod and MK1 lander can. There's a reason I do not want to leave Jeb for the mission. This is also Bob's first mission.

The rocket itself might be overkill, but I am not a rocket scientist so it's up to you.
