YARP - Yet Another RSS Playthrough


Recommended Posts

I think you just click and hold LMB and drag it around to point a Kerbal in that direction. There's also a keybind to get them to rotate to face forwards relative to the camera position, you can change it in the settings (I did, it was bound to left control which is also my go-down button, so I switched to right control instead).

1966 Part 1

The production lines are getting up to speed and we are looking at a lot of launches. Some probes arrive  at their destination. We build our first small space station and many things go wrong with the new Vega class crew vehicle.

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-02-26-20-48-08.png

We have our first Mercury flyby. The DV for capture would be incredible so we adjust our orbit for a low altitude swoop

screenshot-2021-02-26-20-50-16.png

That is some sight, lots of craters

screenshot-2021-02-26-20-50-22.png

Swinging to the dark side, disabling comms and avionics to feed the instruments with the last bit of juice

screenshot-2021-02-26-20-50-41.png

And recover and start transmitting. In 3 years there is opportunity for another pass. The nodes have been set up and the craft is powered down.

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-15-04.png

Same procedure at vesta. Here it would  have taken 5k to orbit. We might be able to do that with a lighter probe

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-15-44.png

It gets small really fast

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-16-16.png

By by. No 4 is disabled, no meaning-full encounters planned

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-44-45.png

Next up is Venus. I'll spare you the craft, but it released an atmospheric probe

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-46-06.png

It will be a flyby mission. The DV is too much. I will need to plan better

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-47-10.png

This is not a good idea, but hey its science

screenshot-2021-02-27-11-47-28.png

And vapourized

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-16-30.png

Our new launcher is ready. Vega 1 is 3 person craft weighting over 15 tons. It launches on a Taurus-0B with a cryo upper stage.

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-17-43.png

Same 9 H1 engines on the first stage as the Taurus-0A. So very reliable

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-18-22.png

Dumping a ton of escape tower

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-19-13.png

Next up are 9 RL-10 engines. Expensive but great ISP

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-23-04.png

On top is the full stack of the Vega, packing 14 days of supplies and 2k dv

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-24-00.png

Release in a 350-450km orbit at 28 deg

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-25-29.png

Circularize and then boost to 12Mm. Service module RCS is not working but we can compensate

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-34-30.png

De-orbit should approximate Lunar speeds

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-35-22.png

The whole thing comes apart

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-39-32.png

We have good deployment and it survived the heat 

screenshot-2021-02-27-12-40-22.png

Success. With all components tested we can move to the next phase of manned tests and final designs

screenshot-2021-02-27-13-00-23.png

Eva Larsen (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) go for a 4 day capsule test. Since the weight is less we can use a cheaper booster and more reliable.

screenshot-2021-02-27-13-14-03.png

On paper! First a booster fails just before MECO, but second stage should be able to cope. Then third stage refuses to light and service module engine does neither. Preparing for a hot re-entry

screenshot-2021-02-27-13-16-46-11.png

Internal images before they hit 13G and faint. They survive though!

screenshot-2021-02-27-16-55-41.png

The final Rigel is rolled out Liam O'Brian (P), Francesco Verne (E) will spend 4d running experiments but since the Vega program is running behind on both capsule and booster, the boys at the Rigel team are proposing a block B.

screenshot-2021-02-27-17-23-41.png

Testing more manouvering

screenshot-2021-02-27-18-47-37.png

The view is amazing

screenshot-2021-02-27-18-50-34.png

this time no fireworks, smooth reentry. Though I cant decide wether 60 or 70 km is better.

screenshot-2021-02-27-18-54-27.png

Rainforest? did you bring the mosquito repellent?

screenshot-2021-02-27-19-17-13.png

Right on schedule Capella 1 launches on a Taurus-0B. Clocking in at 12t

screenshot-2021-02-27-19-18-33.png

It is heading for a 300km orbit the 0B is overpowered but the 0A would be underpowered.

screenshot-2021-02-27-19-19-46.png

Turns out it is a good thing. One of the RL-10 engines explodes but we still make orbit with 1000m/s to spare

screenshot-2021-02-27-19-29-05.png

Deployed and aligned with the sun. It has 30 days of supplies. But with Vega delayed, no crew

screenshot-2021-02-28-00-22-03.png

A mission to Saturn with better RTG, Comms and TSI stage

screenshot-2021-02-28-00-23-46.png

Heavier too but the Taurus-0A can manage

screenshot-2021-02-28-00-31-55.png

I love that engine plume

screenshot-2021-02-28-00-35-31.png

Here we go. It will take some time to get there.

screenshot-2021-02-28-00-59-18.png

Ann Johansson (S), Elene Eikina (P) launch a Block B Rigel. Basically a scaled DOWN version. It has less fuel, only 4d of life support and is meant as an orbital taxi. It is also lighter, which means there is room for a mission payload.

screenshot-2021-02-28-01-20-35.png

Which is shown here. It is a docking adaptor for Rigel to Vega standard but it also contains additional supplies for 30 days.

screenshot-2021-02-28-01-26-24.png

We got this Rendez-vous thing down and will dock

screenshot-2021-02-28-01-30-11.png

Ironically you can reach the supplies from the station, but the astronauts have to EVA over since Rigel has no crew tube

screenshot-2021-02-28-01-31-30.png

We can make this work. As a bonus we can now shutdown the avionics on Rigel saving on power

screenshot-2021-02-28-01-34-55.png

Vessel Naming is a mess

screenshot-2021-02-28-14-50-31.png

Vega 3 is the first production configuration. It launches 2 weeks later

screenshot-2021-02-28-14-52-43.png

On board are Eva Larsen (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) and we are using a Vega Block A with a smaller service module.

screenshot-2021-02-28-14-53-21.png

It can launch on a Taurus-0A which is good

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-01-12.png

New engine design. The core can last for 4d, but it is now carrying an additional 26 days in the mission module on top.

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-06-33.png

It will be a short mission but we will make a house call. Parking orbit was 150km catch up with Capella after 2d. We lost an antenna on the cargo module.

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-09-51.png

Going for dock

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-11-50-1.png

Mission specialist Alexander Hoffmann goes on EVA

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-13-37.png

And installs a new instrument that will need some more CFG file hacking to actually work

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-18-00.png

They then leave the mission module attached and return to Earth

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-23-07.png

Re-entry at 70km

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-25-04-11.png

Look at that interior

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-26-23.png

Very smooth (but long) re-entry

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-32-36.png

Safely back. This could become our new LEO spacecraft

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-42-25.png

Having completed their 30d at the station the crew of Rigel 11 returns. Another Rigel Block B is already completed.

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-43-12.png

It will leave no debris. At 29000 funds it is not that expensive to get 2 astronauts to the station

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-44-48-1.png

screenshot-2021-02-28-15-48-46.png

And we are back

1966 Part 2

There was a lot of activity on the second half of the year. The number of launches in the second half almost doubled that of the first half! we get Kerbals back to the moon and we see two new lifters!

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-01-13-44-23.png

The second mission to Capella takes off with Liam O'Brian (P), Francesco Verne (E)

screenshot-2021-03-01-13-59-00.png

Docking with the mission module

screenshot-2021-03-01-14-48-15.png

screenshot-2021-03-01-14-55-58.png

Powering up the system and running some new experiments for 60 days!

screenshot-2021-03-02-12-40-50.png

screenshot-2021-03-02-12-46-18.png

We return home and take some instruments with us since they draw power

screenshot-2021-03-02-12-53-48.png

screenshot-2021-03-03-06-55-57.png

Luna 23 is a new rover design for Mars but we test it nearby

screenshot-2021-03-03-07-08-44.png

screenshot-2021-03-03-08-22-08.png

It has much better power management but is quite heavy

screenshot-2021-03-03-08-36-05.png

It consists of a landing platform that will turn into a relay post with a high gain antenna.

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-27-41.png

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-34-38.png

TWR is low but lots of delta-v

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-39-47.png

Testing the new airbag landing system.

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-40-45.png

The rover descends, very wobbly

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-41-07.png

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-46-33.png

Its also grabbing surface samples, though we not yet have a way to send them back

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-52-06.png

screenshot-2021-03-03-10-59-48.png

The rover visits 3 biomes due to a great landing spot, grabbing more science than both other rover landings combined. 

screenshot-2021-03-03-11-29-32.png

Canopius 10 heads for Ceres

screenshot-2021-03-03-11-33-44.png

It is too early and will wait for 58 days

screenshot-2021-03-03-15-36-28.png

Vega 4 is crewed by Cloe Frimaut (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) 

screenshot-2021-03-03-15-39-05-11.png

They do a shakedown of the Vega Block B that has more room

screenshot-2021-03-03-16-02-28.png

They will spent 10 days to test all the systems

screenshot-2021-03-03-16-29-22.png

It was launched on a Taurus-0A because it was only partly fueled.

screenshot-2021-03-03-17-08-49.png

The test went well. Block B is cleared for lunar missions

screenshot-2021-03-03-19-08-01.png

Mars window opened up, the rover is ready

screenshot-2021-03-03-21-58-28.png

Basically the same as Luna 23 but now with a orbital insertion module that can act as a relay.

screenshot-2021-03-03-22-09-18.png

Repurposing Legir 5. Planned for the moon, but should have enough juice for this.

screenshot-2021-03-03-22-10-07.png

The launcher is a Taurus-1B powered by 5 E1 engines on the first stage

screenshot-2021-03-03-22-12-35.png

and 8 RL10 engines on the second stage can push 20 tons to LEO

screenshot-2021-03-03-22-21-32.png

Docking with Mars 1

screenshot-2021-03-03-22-29-07.png

screenshot-2021-03-04-11-44-06.png

En-route

screenshot-2021-03-04-12-07-52.png

Vega 5 launches Leia Kuipers (S), Judith Pesquet (S), Liam C. Clarke (P) to Capella 1 making it the fourth visit to the station

screenshot-2021-03-04-12-20-47.png

screenshot-2021-03-04-12-29-02.png

Mission is at least 60 days but we are hoping to get more supplies

screenshot-2021-03-04-16-12-10.png

Jupiter... and many moons. For some reason our orbit jumped after we entered soi

screenshot-2021-03-04-16-20-27.png

So we miss europa now ;-( we go for a very eccentric orbit and hope for another encounter

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-17-31.png

Capella 2 is based on the Vega

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-21-54.png

But the crew section has been replaced with cargo containers

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-28-45.png

The service module is a copy of Vega and completely overpowered

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-29-01.png

It carries 6 months of supply

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-31-15.png

But now power is very close to becoming a problem

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-49-08.png

In the last days of December Vega 6 launches for a 400km 28deg orbit

screenshot-2021-03-04-19-51-20.png

After the dress rehearsal with Vega 4 Cloe Frimaut (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) are now launching on a Taurus-1A that can push the full 15 ton to LEO

screenshot-2021-03-04-20-06-22.png

Followed by Legir 6 again on a 1B

screenshot-2021-03-04-20-16-21.png

They meet up

screenshot-2021-03-04-20-24-58.png

And we have delta-v to spare

screenshot-2021-03-04-21-43-35.png

Look at that beautyshot

screenshot-2021-03-04-22-18-55.png

Vega 6 will need to do its own capture burn, again orbits change after entering SOI

screenshot-2021-03-04-22-28-47.png

screenshot-2021-03-04-22-45-42.png

2 days are spent in orbit to observe our celestial neighbour up close

screenshot-2021-03-04-22-46-08.png

Then we return to a 60km pe

screenshot-2021-03-04-23-13-24.png

Which is really hot for the service module

screenshot-2021-03-04-23-14-05.png

We burn through all of the ablator, again... but survive. I did not like that temperature build up. We will need better heat shields.

The whole docking process is very time consuming. We are looking at 2 launches to get the crew to the moon and 2 for the lander, perhaps 3. I think I will look for a new launcher that can sling 15 ton to the moon

Yes, we just unlocked it, stay tuned ;-)

1967 Part 1

The first half of the year saw fewer launches. The crew is training and the launchers are getting more expensive. We do see two new lifters in the Taurus family and two polished ones in the Aries.

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-07-15-56-22.png

Canopius 5 makes a swing by Europa and grabs some science, it is also slowing down and adjusting its inclination. For 154 m/s we'll get level with io.

screenshot-2021-03-07-16-41-19.png

Meanwhile the crew of Vega 5 is putting a strain on the power systems, they are using the fuel cells to stretch their stay. Leia Kuipers (S), Judith Pesquet (S), Liam C. Clarke (P) have already spent more than 90 days in orbit and are getting quite stressed.

screenshot-2021-03-07-16-46-46.png

Rigel 13 launches with a solution for both problems

screenshot-2021-03-07-16-49-14.png

As always a very reliable trajectory

screenshot-2021-03-07-16-54-28.png

Ann Johansson (S), Elene Eikina (P)  bring a new power module

screenshot-2021-03-07-17-01-15.png

Almost forget to dock, after an accidental burn

screenshot-2021-03-07-17-11-04.png

The ballet begins. Capella 2 needs to go to the other dock and Vega 5 heads home

screenshot-2021-03-07-17-17-50.png

Checking panel alignment

screenshot-2021-03-07-18-14-33.png

Good dock. A small structural tube will allow crew to traverse in the future. For now the crew has to Eva over

screenshot-2021-03-08-13-48-09.png

About 2 months later the relieve crew launches on Vega 7

screenshot-2021-03-08-13-58-44.png

Freeing up the docking port

screenshot-2021-03-08-13-59-34.png

On approach. Cloe Frimaut (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) bring many new instruments and a planned stay of 80 days

screenshot-2021-03-08-14-13-49.png

screenshot-2021-03-08-14-15-41.png

Taking the trash home

screenshot-2021-03-08-14-23-02.png

A safe return for the last of the rigels (for now)

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-21-30.png

Launches on a new rocket. The Taurus-0C especially designed to prevent all the hassle with Legir

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-25-03.png

The first stage is powered by 8 E1 engines, the second runs on the newly unlocked J2 and 3 of them

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-28-36.png

The last bit is a single J2 that puts 15 tons in a 400km 28deg orbit with 4000 m/s to spare

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-28-49.png

It was perfectly timed for another burn

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-32-19.png

Lit up again it burns for the moon

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-41-43.png

And puts the craft in a 34km orbit before using the RCS to deorbit

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-45-29.png

Altair is a prototype lander powered by an AJ10 mid

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-49-29.png

Which explodes after 5 minutes, 2 minutes too soon

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-51-27.png

A drastic attempt is made with the upper stage, only to discover it has a TWR of 0.68

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-52-14.png

This is why we run tests (but a sim is cheaper)

screenshot-2021-03-08-18-52-48-1.png

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-00-31.png

Venus 1 is launched on a polished Aries-2D. It can probably lift 5t now

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-18-30.png

Using a cryo insertion stage

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-24-15.png

Let's hope this works

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-26-53.png

Another old launcher, on the 60t pad is Speculum 8 with 2 satellites in the fairing

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-37-44.png

This time we are confident that power will not be an issue

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-44-08.png

Mars 3 arrives and gets into orbit

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-46-08.png

The burn takes forever, then it drops the Pe

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-50-08.png

and disconnects the payload

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-50-23.png

Before getting back into an orbit 

screenshot-2021-03-08-22-51-38.png

Here it will serve as relay

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-01-03.png

Meanwhile the probe descends without much flaming

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-04-27.png

Ejecting the shell

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-04-40.png

Deploying parachutes

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-05-09.png

And landing system

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-06-15.png

Landing on airbags. The rover is a copy of Luna 23

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-14-59.png

However, since 1 wheel on Luna 23 broke, had engineers tied the craft down with struts, now blocking the wheels

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-19-57.png

So it cant move

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-20-51.png

The surface relay runs out of power so we must wait for the orbiter to come arround

screenshot-2021-03-08-23-21-00.png

Fortunately that one can relay our data, we just cant rove anywhere.

screenshot-2021-03-09-20-08-29.png

Capella 3 launches on a 1B, which needs an upgrade to the J2 engine I know. I like to use my lifters several times, but the Taurus family is destined to grow into a Saturn 5 type of lifter at some point

screenshot-2021-03-09-20-10-48.png

Good lift of the payload in a 450km 28d orbit

screenshot-2021-03-09-20-16-22.png

Old school TLI almost gets us to the moon

screenshot-2021-03-09-20-18-44.png

Just that last 100 m/s

screenshot-2021-03-09-20-31-42.png

Capture and circularisation at 40km

screenshot-2021-03-09-20-37-33.png

Capella 3 will be a small outpost for orbital observation and can dock with landers too. It is designed as a lifeboat if something goes wrong, we have 60 days to come up with a solution.

screenshot-2021-03-10-11-24-48.png

Vega 8 on another Taurus-0C this is quite early but we are confident. On board are Eva Larsen (P), Judith Pesquet (S), Liam C. Clarke (P) good for a total of 12 missions. They are very experienced (okay Eva did half of those missions, but still)

screenshot-2021-03-10-11-29-53.png

Second stage comfortably lifts the craft to orbit. I like the J2. 300m/s left

screenshot-2021-03-10-11-38-11.png

TLI 

screenshot-2021-03-10-11-44-36.png

The crew is excited

screenshot-2021-03-10-11-45-24.png

Capture using the OMS

screenshot-2021-03-10-11-55-09.png

A bit of rendez vous from 750 to 40 km

screenshot-2021-03-10-12-02-16.png

Dock! they will spend 12 days in orbit before returning

screenshot-2021-03-10-12-02-57.png

The station is providing ample power

screenshot-2021-03-10-17-27-33.png

Meanwhile the crew of Vega 7 returns. So that they can prepare for their moon trip. That is if we get the rocket built in time

screenshot-2021-03-10-18-12-11.png

Eva is enjoying herself.

This is what the current family of lifters looks like, I am working on a low cost below the Taurus 1A. Cost means it takes a long time to build, so lower cost is good

Also dancing around the max capacity of the platforms

1967 second half

This year would see its fair share of failure and setbacks, however we are hopeful for the next year when the mature versions of the Vega class will dominate the launches. We are also starting to train crew for a new capsule, but it will take them 300 days in class...

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-11-13-27-24.png

After 12 days in orbit of the Moon, the crew of Vega 8 returns. Leaving the crew module at the station to gradually build out the living space. The craft was designed for 4 days of autonomous operation.

screenshot-2021-03-11-13-29-06.png

When plotting the return a "normal" return would take 5 days. Also Li reserves are low, we do have plenty of fuel though. We decide to burn 1300 of the 1500dv and get home in 3 days.

screenshot-2021-03-11-14-26-49.png

We do need to slow down though, food is already gone, O2 is very low, scrubbers have 30 minutes left

screenshot-2021-03-11-14-28-44.png

No more fuel means we use the last for spin stabilised reentry and hope for the best

screenshot-2021-03-11-14-40-06.png

One parachute burns off, but the other one is okay. Let's tweak the numbers on this craft before we launch it again.

screenshot-2021-03-12-12-44-42.png

Vega 9 is still using a block A configuration and heading to Capella. Making it the 7th mission to the station in two years

screenshot-2021-03-12-14-06-07.png

For some reason the pannels are now obscured by Vega, fortunately we have an engineer

screenshot-2021-03-12-17-16-39.png

Slight pannel rearrangement

screenshot-2021-03-12-17-17-29.png

For some reason the orbit changed, and we get to the craft as it entered the atmosphere. We are not sure why this happend but we blame SmartASS

screenshot-2021-03-12-17-18-13.png

Emergency reentry, in the distance we see the station blow up 

screenshot-2021-03-12-17-18-13-1.png

More fireworks, we did transfer the data. But the loss of the station is depressing, we had expansions planned for the 180 day record

screenshot-2021-03-12-20-44-11.png

A jupiter probe on a Taurus-1A

screenshot-2021-03-12-20-53-02.png

We've seen these many time. I should design a new set of TxI stages Something around payload mass/dv. This is underpowered but requires no tooling

screenshot-2021-03-12-20-54-58.png

Last 130 m/s we can spare. Orbit looks good, we should get in a level plane this time 

screenshot-2021-03-13-16-53-11.png

Venus 1 arrives, skims the atmo at 120km fine, but at 110 everything explodes, it did get in orbit and sent new images. Design on a new lander will start soon, hopefully before those contracts run out.

screenshot-2021-03-13-20-14-04.png

The backup for Canopius 11 was number 12. Designed for Jupiter but with a few tweaks in the antenna it can reach Uranus.

screenshot-2021-03-13-20-24-27.png

And we think that after a gravity assist from Uranus, we might get to Neptune. The antennas have not been designed for it though. We may need a deep space relay.

screenshot-2021-03-13-21-38-39.png

In december the new module for our orbital lab is complete, Capella 4 launches on an Taurus-1B and is put in a 400km orbit

screenshot-2021-03-13-21-46-16.png

It has advanced solar panes that can track the sun (oh joy!)

screenshot-2021-03-13-21-48-27.png

This will save us so much pain. It is a pity that Capella 1 is gone, it was supposed to dock to that to increase living space

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-05-44.png

We also have a supply ship in storage that we can now send up

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-12-31.png

It will provide 6 months of supply.

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-21-25.png

The crew of Vega 10 launch with block 1A of the Vega craft. Tuned down to 3 days of life support and some new tech it is made as cheap as possible

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-22-52.png

The launcher is a new Taurus-0L. Powered by 3 H1 engines in the first stage and 4 X405 in the second. This allows it to lift 5 tons to LEO and lower the cost of crewed launches to the station by 30%

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-29-26.png

We had a misfire but corrected it

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-31-55.png

Its also the first craft not to use fuel cells for manned craft

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-44-38.png

Rendezvous is getting easier

screenshot-2021-03-13-22-52-19.png

But docking is not! the craft has no attitude control thrusters, only roll. In a desperate attempt the ground crew reactivates the avionics on the station and uses that to dock with the spacecraft

screenshot-2021-03-13-23-03-15.png

Obviously there are fixes to be made, but for the next 180 days Capella 4 has a crew and they can do actually science in an actual lab. If our comm sat network was working better, they would also have a call home. Oh and disabling pressure control until we have a crew is a dumb idea, we lost all our nitrogen reserves trying to represurize and are using O2 now to presurize the lab

1968 First Quarter

I noticed there were already a lot of screen shots and since some of them were really exciting I decided to do an early report:

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-14-12-27-01.png

Early days of January Cloe Frimaut (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) start on their epic moon Journey. 

screenshot-2021-03-14-12-30-53.png

Their Vega has a better arrangement of consumables allowing for a longer time in space in the event of the separation of the mission module. The trusted 0C brings them on a TLI before crashing into the moon

screenshot-2021-03-14-13-19-36.png

And the service module does a nice capture at 75x35 km before rendez vous

screenshot-2021-03-14-13-32-23.png

I love mechjeb for plotting nodes, but docking I like to do myself, it just wastes so much fuel.

screenshot-2021-03-14-13-39-02.png

Cloe Frimaut (P), Valentina Yankovskaya (S), Alexander Hoffmann (E) start their 30 days in orbit of the moon mission and bring a lot of new equipment

screenshot-2021-03-14-18-36-16.png

Meanwhile Canopius 5B has a Ganymede flyby that will drop their ap even further and get us closer to io, first we load up a ton of science

screenshot-2021-03-14-21-55-22.png

Alexander goes EVA to transfer equipement

screenshot-2021-03-14-21-56-45.png

This stuff's gotta go

screenshot-2021-03-14-21-58-25.png

screenshot-2021-03-14-21-59-56.png

The additional space is very welcome, each can have private sleeping quarters not needing to hear the others snore. But after 30 days it is time to head home

screenshot-2021-03-16-12-34-05.png

Leaving another living space module. This time they have enough capacity to get home

screenshot-2021-03-16-13-03-31.png

And yes we have the io encounter, we ran out of fuel but io will bump our inclination hopefully enough so we can run the orbital perbutation experiment for the next 9 years. 

screenshot-2021-03-16-13-04-32.png

Unless an encouter will change our course

screenshot-2021-03-16-13-04-40.png

Wallpaper shot

screenshot-2021-03-16-13-07-20.png

Mid course change, we are coming in too hot

screenshot-2021-03-16-13-42-23.pngPulling too many G here! all crew passed out, but survived

screenshot-2021-03-16-17-33-37.png

Capella 6 was the backup for Capella 4, but since that was a success we can expand the station

screenshot-2021-03-16-17-42-16.png

Those RL10's should be capable enough

screenshot-2021-03-16-17-52-50.png

I see you! lets slow down. It is really hard to get a good alignment

screenshot-2021-03-16-17-53-59.png

Closing on RCS, we have enough

screenshot-2021-03-16-18-30-16.png

Another docking

screenshot-2021-03-16-18-31-03.png

Closing in

screenshot-2021-03-16-18-31-14.png

screenshot-2021-03-16-18-31-48.png

Fiddling with those Mole ports

screenshot-2021-03-16-18-37-02.png

Contact, that is one fine station

screenshot-2021-03-16-18-37-22.png

With plenty of room and power

screenshot-2021-03-16-19-05-59.png

Altair 2 is the second test of the lander

screenshot-2021-03-16-19-14-40.png

Good departure, but low on dv, we will need to capture on RCS too

screenshot-2021-03-16-19-40-15.png

We also have a mercury window and an oppertunity to test our moon rocket again

screenshot-2021-03-16-19-45-06.png

over 6000 dv to Mercury

screenshot-2021-03-16-19-49-53.png

Last 100 from the capture stage

screenshot-2021-03-16-20-00-10.png

Altair begins landing sequence from 400x40km it descends at pe angling 5deg above the horizon due to low TWR

screenshot-2021-03-16-20-06-01.png

One single burn, this is new

screenshot-2021-03-16-21-20-06.png

This engine can handle it and it can throttle

screenshot-2021-03-16-21-23-23.png

Getting close

screenshot-2021-03-16-21-30-05.png

Touchdown 7m/s left

screenshot-2021-03-16-21-31-35.png

After 1 day we depart

screenshot-2021-03-16-21-36-42.png

This was a struggle to get right

screenshot-2021-03-16-21-38-25.png

TWR is just too low we keep fighting gravity

screenshot-2021-03-16-22-13-10.png

Orbit 30x84km with 34 m/s left

screenshot-2021-03-16-22-14-25.png

After some tests the craft is crashed into the surface

screenshot-2021-03-17-11-18-19.png

Small correction burn. In 100 days we attempt a capture at Mercury

1968 second quarter

The time has come that we can try for that most important of mission, perhaps not with that hardware we wanted, but it can be done and we will do so.

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-18-13-07-21.png

The crew of Vega 10 have spent 180 days in space. It's time to go home. Accidentally this disables the pressure regulators on the station which will lead to problems and massive resource loss later on.

screenshot-2021-03-18-13-08-51.png

All systems work perfectly.

screenshot-2021-03-18-13-10-44.png

Starting descent

screenshot-2021-03-18-13-30-59.png

The backup from the Mercury mission is retasked to to Saturn.

screenshot-2021-03-18-13-33-58.png

Lose thrust on one J2 make orbit anyway. Perfect departure, it will arrive in 6 years.

screenshot-2021-03-18-14-36-46.png

The next one goes to Vesta

screenshot-2021-03-18-14-41-32.png

It will try to capture using the solid boosters.

screenshot-2021-03-18-15-00-18.png

Next crew for the station, another Taurus-0L launch

screenshot-2021-03-18-15-16-35.png

Good dock, Leia signed up for 1 year in space.

screenshot-2021-03-18-17-31-14.png

Launched in 1965, but still very much alive. For 154 m/s we get another pass at Mercury

screenshot-2021-03-18-17-37-22.png

But Canopius 13 gets there first

screenshot-2021-03-18-17-37-47.png

Firing up those boosters

screenshot-2021-03-18-17-39-08.png

And the final stage

screenshot-2021-03-18-17-42-15.png

Capture! highly eliptical

screenshot-2021-03-18-17-42-57.png

It will take several sweeps to get all the data

screenshot-2021-03-18-19-57-15.png

Capella 7 brings new supplies on a Taurus-0L. Less supply but cheaper to launch and can launch on a Taurus-0L

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-02-04.png

Approach

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-05-33.png

And dock. See the size difference between the old and new.

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-16-41.png

End of July Altair leaves to for the Moon

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-25-09.png

After a 200km insert it leaves for the moon

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-36-30.png

It barely makes orbit at 30km due to RCS in the transfer stage. But it made orbit! batteries are locked and the system is put in sleep mode.

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-41-23.png

Eva Larsen (P), Elene Eikina (P), Ann Johansson (S) head out on Vega 13

screenshot-2021-03-18-20-46-11.png

The J2 lights again. 

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-09-47.png

After a good insert at 100km it quickly catches up with the lander

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-15-21.png

This is why we trained this at the station people

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-18-11.png

Dock! Eva and Ann transfer to the lander and since it is drawing resources we quickly disconnect

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-25-09.png

Light up the engine and keep it burning

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-28-41.png

We slam into the moon at 18 m/s and lose the engine with still 100 m/s left but we landed!

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-31-18.png

Eva and Ann are the first to walk on the moon

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-31-40.png

Eva plants a flag

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-32-38.png

Inspection of the lost engine

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-33-47.png

Ann heads out to the lockers

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-34-30.png

She places a monument for Stephan Adams on the moon

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-34-40.png

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-37-42.png

They will make 2 EVA's for a total of 2 hours collecting samples

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-41-39.png

Take off just before the orbiter will reach us, we are at inc. 0.45 deg relative inclination

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-42-56.png

Picking up speed

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-43-41.png

We get good traction

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-46-16.png

Rendez vous for 4 m/s

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-51-39.png

Hello there

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-52-32.png

Docking this thing is a dream

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-55-48.png

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-56-02.png

After transfer we undock the lander and leave it to crash

screenshot-2021-03-18-21-58-04.png

Then we burn for home. Plenty of resources left

screenshot-2021-03-18-22-00-04.png

screenshot-2021-03-18-22-02-04.png

Stretching the legs

screenshot-2021-03-18-22-11-13.png

Pe at 65km

screenshot-2021-03-18-22-12-51.png

screenshot-2021-03-18-22-13-20.png

One parachute burned off

screenshot-2021-03-18-22-16-08.png

Safely back. For some reason the samples are lost? we did transfer them to the capsule but its not there anymore. I guess that means we need to go back

1968 second half

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-19-21-00-45.png

Capella 8 is another resupply for the station. This will bring up the nitrogen for at least a year

screenshot-2021-03-19-21-11-50.png

This will relieve the strain on the O2 pressure

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-02-47.png

And another resupply mission this will bring the total supplies to a year

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-09-22.png

On approach

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-13-22.png

Capella 5 is empty can now burn up

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-23-51.png

We upgrade the comm network to level 7 Commsat 8 is being replaced by commsat 10

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-26-19.png

Relays are put in geostationary orbit

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-29-40.png

Final one

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-39-27.png

Next up a new spacecraft for deep space, two crews are already training for it

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-47-52.png

Orbital manœuvres testing. We should have 50 ignitions

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-54-24.png

And 2500 m/s will bring the craft quite the manauverabilty around the moon

screenshot-2021-03-21-11-59-33.png

Checking the docking procedure. It is a heavy craft to navigate

screenshot-2021-03-21-12-04-00.png\

Dock achieved.

screenshot-2021-03-21-15-21-10.png

Valerie has fallen ill and it is decided that she will come back with the Polaris

screenshot-2021-03-21-15-22-40.png

Re-entry at 65km the craft has reduced ablator

screenshot-2021-03-21-15-25-55.png

Valerie loves the new internal view. Life support systems are excellent. There is a little worry about the orientation to the sun

screenshot-2021-03-21-15-27-00.png

Disconnect the service module

screenshot-2021-03-21-15-41-42.png

Great reentry, gently on the G's

screenshot-2021-03-21-16-16-26.png

Meanwhile Canopius 10 swings by Ceres

screenshot-2021-03-21-16-17-21.png

Brings a trove of science after 2 years of travels

screenshot-2021-03-21-16-23-43.png

A capture is not possible but at 1500 m/s we'll swing by Vesta in 2 years! A capture would have taken 7k

screenshot-2021-03-21-17-47-40.png

A new rover for our sister planet. Let's hope this one survives..

screenshot-2021-03-21-17-49-05.png

The only 1A of the year

screenshot-2021-03-21-18-06-08.png

A small TVI stage, they will need to use a bit of the capture stage. But we get good departure.

1969 first half

The first half of 1969 is marked by new launcher development. This has slowed production considerably and we will need another few moon landings to have the funds to speed up again. Science is increasing due to some great missions this year.

Following the moon landing the head of the space agency announces an ambition to put boots on mars within the decade.

Spoiler

A second flyby of Mercury yields a bit more science but not much. We do learn more about gravity assists and deep space manoeuvring.

Mission has been more than successful.

Second test of Polaris. Liam O'Brian (P), Francesco Verne (E), Judith Pesquet (S) launch in lunar orbit and spend 10 days to test the systems and try the engines for a high speed rentry

First launch of a 1B this year. This launcher could do with an upgrade

Vega is fuel cell powered, but Polaris uses the sun

Space is an improvement for quality of life

Re-entry at 9km/s easy, hardly burn any ablator

New attempt at a mars rover on a 0C

screenshot-2021-03-23-17-10-56.png

Two were built, both depart succesfully

A similar rover arrives at Venus

screenshot-2021-03-23-17-46-55.png

One part is the relay station that will be put in low Venus orbit

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-05-58.png

After the rentry burn, the orbiter flips and raises orbit

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-18-51.png

The rover will use RCS to tweak the descent

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-24-11.png

Pe dropped from 125 to 120 after 4 passes.  using the RCS, this is it!

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-27-33.png

Descent takes very long, we lost 1 solar panel due to heating

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-36-39.png

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-48-35.png

One chute explodes, the second one is okay

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-51-55.png

The RTG overheats on the landing station, the rover quickly leaves the platform, after that the platform explodes

screenshot-2021-03-23-20-58-09.png

The rover gets hot, but not too hot

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-04-26.png

Grabbing samples, but relay is not possible due to alignment and landing site. The craft connects to the orbiter but only when it is in the radio shadow. In 90 days we hope to regain contact and finally get the science.

Capella 10 is the first launch of a Taurus-0D. 

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-22-44.png

This power house has 5 F1 engines on the first stage.

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-23-35.png

And 5 J2 engines on the second, this can push 120t to LEO

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-33-20.png

Final stage is the same as the 0C, carrying a J2. It can push 45t to TLI. The current payload is a Capella block B space-station. The electronics have been upgraded so it will also do the capture burn at the moon since the station weights only 16t

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-38-35.png

Approaching Capella 3

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-43-22.png

Dock is complete. The stack is designed to facilitate in orbit research and supply. It also has a male docking port for a future reusable lander.

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-43-26.png

Capella 3 is almost the same size as Capella 4 now but supply runs low

screenshot-2021-03-23-21-54-03.png

We have 89 days of N2, we will need a resupply soon

RP1 patch of the day

I love RP1 but the second half of the tech tree is really empty. There is some mod support but not easy to find. I find myself creating RO and RP1 configs for various mods that may help other players, thus I'll post some of these patches here in the hope that they may help someone.

RP1 patch of the day

I love RP1 but the second half of the tech tree is really empty. There is some mod support but not easy to find. I find myself creating RO and RP1 configs for various mods that may help other players, thus I'll post some of these patches here in the hope that they may help someone.

Technically it is not a patch but a pull request that lives in github: https://github.com/Tubbz-alt/KerbalRenamer/pull/1/files 

Here is what happend to GameData/KerbalRenamer/KerbalRenamer.cfg

Patch of the day

AlternateApollo is a great mod, but not all is supported in RP1. Here is a better Skylab if you are running Kerbalism it will give you some comfort which seems fair since it is a lot bigger than a hitchhiker, surely there is a tredmill.

Spoiler

//Skylab
@PART[ApolloLab_core|ApolloLab_hab]:NEEDS[ProfileRealismOverhaul]:AFTER[RealismOverhaul]
{
  %capsuleScrubbers = true
  %scrubberCapacity = 1.67

  MODULE
  {
    name = ProcessController
    resource = _PressureControl
    title = N2 Pressure Controller
    desc = Use <b>Nitrogen</b> to maintain the internal atmosphere at a comfortable pressure.
    capacity = 1.67
    toggle = true
    running = true
  }

  @MODULE[ProcessController],*
  {
    @capacity *= #$/CrewCapacity$
  }

  MODULE
  {
    name = Comfort
    bonus = exercise
    desc = A treadmill designed to permit exercise in zero-g is included. The crew will love it.
  }

  MODULE:NEEDS[FeatureReliability]
  {
    name = Reliability
    type = Comfort
    title = Treadmill
    repair = Engineer
    mtbf = 36288000
    extra_cost = 0.25
    extra_mass = 0.05
  }

  @tags ^= :$: comfort:

  // remove the -200W generator
  !MODULE[ModuleGenerator] {}
}

@PART[ApolloLab_core|ApolloLab_science]:NEEDS[ProfileRealismOverhaul]:AFTER[RealismOverhaul]
  {
  MODULE
  {
      name = Laboratory
      ec_rate = 0.1
      analysis_rate = 0.000005
      @ec_rate *= #$/CrewCapacity$
      @analysis_rate *= #$/CrewCapacity$
      researcher = Scientist
  }
}
 

And while we are at it, this adds the missing part to flesh out the tech tree after your moon landing

    @description ^=:$: <color=green>From AlternateApollo mod.</color>
    @cost *= 1.2
    %entryCost *= 3
    %RP0conf = True
}
 

Finally, I  want to mix and match my early apollo with my late apollo. So here is a patch to allow docking them

Spoiler

@PART[ROC-ApolloForwardHS|ROC-ApolloDrogueDockPort|ROC-ApolloDockingProbe]:NEEDS[ROCapsules]
{
    @MODULE[ModuleDockingNode]
    {
        @nodeType = Apollo, size1

1969 Second Half

new infrastructure and a cool new landing

Spoiler

screenshot-2021-03-25-16-57-32.png

Vega 14 heads to the moon ahead of the new moon landing to prep the station

screenshot-2021-03-25-17-11-53.png

Still a slow capture burn

screenshot-2021-03-25-17-14-34.png

En route to the new lab with more instruments

screenshot-2021-03-25-17-15-40.png

Inspection of the station prior to docking

screenshot-2021-03-25-17-17-44.png

This looks awesome! The organically grown Capella 3 has become a really sizable station

screenshot-2021-03-25-18-21-01.png

Installation of the new O2 pressure regulator

screenshot-2021-03-25-18-24-37.png

Beauty shot

screenshot-2021-03-25-18-37-49.png

The first lunar resupply is sent out with a lot of N2

screenshot-2021-03-25-18-43-34.png

Almost the same design as for LEO

screenshot-2021-03-25-18-58-30.png

Good insert

screenshot-2021-03-25-19-05-58.png

Precision docking through the solar array

screenshot-2021-03-25-21-36-25.png

Next up is Polaris 3 to the moon!

screenshot-2021-03-25-21-38-53.png

Good launch. The Taurus 0D has had a couple of launches now and is basically a beefed up 0C that has flown 14 times now

screenshot-2021-03-25-21-48-56.png

But we carry our own TLI stage

screenshot-2021-03-25-21-54-05.png

And we use solar now. No more power problems

screenshot-2021-03-25-22-02-09.png

The new lander is smaller and lighter

screenshot-2021-03-25-22-14-41.png

Using the service engine to capture

screenshot-2021-03-26-00-44-12.png

Descent stage is the same

screenshot-2021-03-26-00-59-28.png

Burning the whole way down. We need to hit the right biome this time

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-04-11.png

Touchdown, lost the engine again!

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-14-56.png

Lots of samples to be collected

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-15-31.png

And a flag of course

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-16-39.png

They set up some reflectors and will spend a day

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-23-44.png

Observations from Capella 3 that is in their path

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-32-17.png

Back home a crew is tired and will be rotated out

screenshot-2021-03-26-01-35-37.png

Good return

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-04-07.png

One day later it is time to go

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-04-36.png

Good seperation though the gimbal fights

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-04-38.png

Locking gimbal, using RCS for control we get a nice orbit, and close to the station

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-21-19.png

Rendez vous and sample delivery

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-34-57.png

Alexander joins them

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-35-58.png

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-42-22.png

The lander can be discarded

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-50-09.png

The crew returns on the vega but Chris stays behind to work with the other team to analyse the samples, most of the crew got hit pretty hard by a solar storm

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-50-21.png

Breaking orbit

screenshot-2021-03-27-09-56-50.png

screenshot-2021-03-27-15-18-58.png

30 days later the others must leave too. There is still a lot of science to be done.

screenshot-2021-03-28-03-18-08.png

We'll be back

screenshot-2021-03-28-03-46-58.png

Safe returns after a skip

screenshot-2021-03-28-14-42-55.png

Finally we arrive at Vesta and enter orbit. We need the TWR of the solids to slow down fast

screenshot-2021-03-28-14-43-41.png

And another long burn

screenshot-2021-03-28-14-46-30.png

Orbit achieved

screenshot-2021-03-28-16-21-08.png

Capella 12 is designed to prevent the radiation problem

screenshot-2021-03-28-16-29-17.png

It is a mostly empty supply craft that has been outfitted with a shield

screenshot-2021-03-28-16-30-18.png

TLI

screenshot-2021-03-28-16-35-23.png

And deployement. This should work in theory

screenshot-2021-03-28-16-44-22.png

Capture. We bring some more N2 as well

screenshot-2021-03-28-16-51-45.png

screenshot-2021-03-28-17-04-40.png

Fiddly dock, but we can now turn our tail to the sun

screenshot-2021-03-28-18-55-46.png

Vega 15 ferries Valerie up for a 3 year mission in preparation for mars. Wil it drive her crazy?

screenshot-2021-03-28-19-08-12.png

Dock achieved. Plenty of supply left

screenshot-2021-03-28-20-59-49.png

But you can always do with more

screenshot-2021-03-29-15-00-34.png

Next up is a lander and orbiter for Jupiters moon(s) We hope europa

screenshot-2021-03-29-15-07-23.png

Familiar launcher

screenshot-2021-03-29-15-07-38.png

New design with a lot of power

screenshot-2021-03-29-15-36-09.png

Another crew rotate, we need the team back.
