SRB mission to Eeloo and back


Recommended Posts

  

I made a return trip to Eeloo using only Solid Fuel boosters.

For me, it was a very challenging mission!

In order to get my 0.55t payload to its destination and back..I needed a 4,300t ship. It took me many iterations and rage quits before I came up with a working vessel.

Completing the mission was very rewarding though! :)

I used Windows Transfer planner to set up the departure date and used a simple custom kOS script to calculate the delta v budget per stage with 10 decimals to get more accuracy.

If anybody's interested here's a 4 minute clip of my mission. :)

i've seen someone on youtube already did the same thing. not that it detracts anything from your achievement

I bet.. :)after more than 9 years, most of the stuff has already been done by somebody else (and most probably better as well). I hope I didn't give you the feeling I was claiming to be the only one who has done an SRB challenge? For me, this was a ksp bucket list thing and I'm glad I succeeded.
