Prologue

After Years of the Space Shuttle, The Lyra Program is Announced to Send Humans to the Moon and Mars, Utilizing 2 Launch Vehicles, The Athena 1 and Athena V

The HLV, Athena V Uses 5 Mainsail Engines alongside 2 SRBs on the Side for the First Stage, The Second Stage (EDS) Uses 1 UR-2x Engine for EOI and TLI.

254dbfaff4351546e3ee89ecb2d65700.jpg

The Athena I uses a Single SRB for its First Stage and A U2x for the Second Stage, It carries the Crux Crew Capsule into LEO for ISS Missions or Pegasus Missions

The First Crew for Crux-CDM has been Named however, The Commander is Ralph Cook, Pilot is Henry Ross, Due to the Fact Crux-CDM is a Test Flight it will only have 2 Crew Members of the 3 that it can Fit

The Mission was VERY Uneventful with the fact that the Only Operational stage was the SRB.

The Daily Show - January 4th 2015

NASA Has announced a Mars Sample-Return Mission, The Hermes Mission is to be done in 2 Launches, The MLAV (Mars Lander and Ascent Vehicle) is due to be launched in 2019 and one week Later the ERO Will Launch (Earth Return Orbiter)

The MLAV will be Launched on a Athena V while the ERO on a Ghidorah Heavy, This Mission will return the first Real Martian Soil as the Only way we have Observed Mars's Surface here is through Martian Meteorites and Probes. A Verification of the System will be test during the MOPSAR (MOon Pole SAmple Return) Mission in 2016 which will Launch on the Muo V 541, The Next Planned NASA Launch is Crux-CDM which will be in 2 Months. In other NASA News, The Launch Date of the Demeter Orbiter has its Launch Date Confirmed, It will be Launching on December 12th 2015 on the Muo V 541.

This is Jeffery Long and Thank you for Reading the NASA Segment of The Daily Show.

Soyuz TMA-18M Undocking from the ISS

ef662c57738df53b4408c57dd89fcd2e.jpg

This was the last known Transmission of Soyuz TMA-18M, The Soyuz Capsule's Parachute detached leading the Cosmonauts to Smash into the Ground at 181m/s, The Astronauts Killed in this Incident was

  • Commander Pyotr Nesterov - Flew on Soyuz TMA-19 as Flight Engineer
  • Flight Engineer Emilla Eybozhenka - Maiden Flight as Pilot
  • Flight Engineer Makar Abramov - First Flight, Graduated top of 2010 Class

Soyuz Flights have been put on hold until the Cause of Crash is determined and a Fix is put away, Another side affect is that Crux-1 will forced to be a Single Craft Expedition as Soyuz TMA-19M was going to launch one week after TMA-18M Crash

The Lyra Program - Chapter 8: Athena and Bagorah

This will be an Extended Chapter and Will Feature a Few cool Missions

(story time)

In 2008, A Company known as Blue Origin springs up with a goal of Suborbital Tourism using the New Grissom Launch Vehicle, In 2014 they unveiled their plans for an Orbital Launch Vehicle, New Borman which will be a HLV. The Year is now 2015 and New Grissom is ready to launch...

0535a1d7efa5b018b51c07c71d24576a.jpg

Flight 1 will be unmanned for the sakes of testing, However flight 4 will be crewed,

7d7337547492779db3345aa7f633b6f7.jpg

The also other thing excluded is First Stage Recovery, Flight 2 will be the first attempt at a crewed landing

250add66436ee88fd0d8dc269f83e08d.jpg

After a rough landing, The New Grissom Capsule has landed.

The Next Launch is TundraX's Bagorah 9

c4694bd982be4ccf6079df58e0995bae.jpg

Nervous TundraX Eyes watch, If this fails NASA will cut off the contract, luckily Rendezvous wont be on this flight, but the stakes are still high

First MVAC Firing

After the Second MVAC Firing, A Vital Software Bug causes it to misfire after Gigan Seperation which caused Severe Damage to the Vehicle, It is believed the recovery system has been destroyed and the RCS Tanks Partially ruptured, The Mission is demanded to be deorbited as per TundraX Policies

The next Launch is done by a Small Australian Company, Eris Space Exploration launching there Sunsis Rocket

650931a13956c9fd4d67eebb3b9835aa.jpg

However due to Problems with the Flight Computer, FTS is activated and Sunsis Flight 1 is declared a failure.

Now we fast forward onto 2016 and on the Pad is Athena V-Y

2a291e3198a4e18f0f598d4715c400d4.png

The Athena V will be the Main Launch Vehicle for the Altair Lander and Crewed Mars Missions

"As the Turms Lander leaves for Mars, Hopefully this reminds us that this is in a Greater Step forward, one we took in 1969 when Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon, One we took in 1961 when Yuri Gagarin Orbited the Earth, December 24th 2026, We will launch the next great step."

That announced the Launch date of Ares I

Next Launch is the MASARE Orbiter (Mars Sample Return) on a Muo 541,

The Lyra Program - Chapter 11: Moon or Bust! (p2)

As the date to Crux-9 came closer, Tests of the Gojira began, Shortly after the announcement, Hopper1 went up 140m and before Crux 9, GN8 launches to 12km

"GN8 has landed, Congrats to the team at TundraX, Next Stop 80km"

Now Altair 1 is on the pad, Ready to perform an apollo 10 Like mission

Altair 1 begins its descent to a simulated abort situation, at 6km CDR Ralph Cook and PLT Kathryn Hicks will trigger the abort motor and lift back to the orion.

Altair 1 soon loses contact with Houston for an unknown reason, 48hrs later the Crew of Altair 1 is presumed dead.

An inquiry reveals that Ralph Cook accidentally programmed the system wrong which would've triggered the abort motor before impact. due to the Accident being caused by a Human error, not Hardware or Software error, All other altair missions are still on schedule.

MIS Henry Harris begins his journey back to Earth, but he refuses...

 

"Henry, You have a girlfriend and you are only 28. Don't through your life away."

"When I was assigned to this mission, I took an oath. If Hicks and Cook died. I wouldn't return and that's final"

Henry Ceases transmissions and de-orbits the Crux. Henry is celebrated as an Astronauts' hero and dies a martyr of some sort.

 

 

 

Rest in Peace the crew of Crux-9.

You served valiantly and proud.

 

(2022-2030 will be apart of a different MR, "The Age of Exploration")
