Before we start, I'd like to thank myself for making the mod I will be using, KerBinary. It's really excellent and I hope you check it out. Also I am playing on Rescale 2x. Enjoy!

CHAPTER 1: Intro and stuff

WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, everything has to start somewhere, and here, like most other KSP games, I started out with a simple sounding rocket, the Safe 'n Sound 1

Isn't she a Beauty?

Unfortunately, the parachute was deployed in flight. Still got 72 whole science points!!!

Since I am using BARIS, i want to do some Testing

Not THAT kind of testing, Jeb!

Sigh. . . .  Later.

CHAPTER 2: Space is the place

__________________________________________________________

We start off with a new rocket, the Safe 'n Sound 2. It's a big upgrade from the first rocket, and cound probably reach orbit with an upper stage.

Beautiful from up here, huh.

Back to Kerba Firma again, after nearly disintegrating. By the way, I had no control over the rocket at all the whole time

All in all, a successful mission. 82 science points, too!

CHAPTER 2 1/2

____________________

Say Hello to the SHTICK mk1, the KSP's first crewed vehicle

Uhg. Does it have to look like that?

-Engineer's Comment: No, but we wanted to upset Administration by making it look Horrible.

ABORT, ABORT!!!!

-Administrators Comment: Those Lazy engineers, always forgetting stuff. Seriously, no control scheme. We should fire them on the spot!!

 

Sigh . . . . broken rockets and infighting. Will we ever have success?

CHAPTER 3: Nothing's Working!

_______________________________________

We Start off with the first, and probably only flight of this chapter, Horizons 1.

It's the KSP's second attempt at crewed flight, and this time it looks sensible

-Engineers Comment: Well, we had to after Admin threatened our jobs

Ignition! Of the SRB lower stage

Burning hot

Gosh darn it! Stupid part limits

Jeb is sad

7Q6BZp0.png

The reentry has problems with oscillations. Luckily, nothing came of them

JqOPTIq.png

Safe in the water (even the capsule looks sad)

 

All in all, a sort of failure. Jeb went to space, but not to orbit.

-Administrations comment: Why didn't we build a bigger rocket? Where are the Moar Boosters!

-Rnd's Comment: Not our fault! It was engineering!

-Engineering's Comment: It was the financial dept.!

-Financial Dept.'s Comment: We dont have the money to upgrade our buildings! We spent it all on cheese!

-Everyone's Comment: Then who spent the money!

-Jeb's Comment: :blush: Ummmmmmmm . . . . .

 

 

 

 

Also, i'm sorry about the shorter chapters, especially compared to other mission reports. The length of the chapter just tends to coincide with the amount of KSP I play a day

CHAPTER 4: Building, Flying, Dreaming!

___________________________________________________

Boys, This is gonna be a big one

 

The Crewed Orbit program is going well, with the introduction of a new rocket, the New Horizons

You know how it goes

<Insert build fly dream music>

All in all, a fully successful mission

Jeb went to space

Science was gained

And I forgot to take screenshots of the time in space.

 

Now, we do some probe stuff.

nG3hcmU.png

Behold, the Horizons 3

I forgot to take screenshots of the launch, as I had no SAS and it was quite hard

MniUkYO.png\

Science was got, blah blah blah, cool satellite

 

I needed money, so decided to take a contract to test an engine. The deployment thing for space is the satellite but without much in it.

The LV is just New Horizons minus boosters

Now defunct, the empty cargo bay drifts through space

 

Oh, and I messed around with planes a bit

CHAPTER 5: I'M BACK, BABY!

_______________________________________

Just one mission today, but an important one. The space program has decided, after a long hiatus, to reach farther than LKO, to POL, Kerbins's only moon (yes i am using an indev version of KerBinary)

BEHOLD: The Pol 1

TRjFh3N.png

Got some nice shots

Waterfall is amazing

This is giving me Virgin Orbit vibes

CHAPTER 6: WE MEET AGAIN (AGAIN)

___________________________________________________

Hooh BOY, this is gonna be a big one.

 

First, we start off with a few changes to the space program. First of all, the Horizons program is being split into 2. The Horizons program is going to become exclusively crewed missions, and the new program, the Dawn program will have the unmanned ones. Also, i installed the state funding mod (using the USK).

 

This will be the first launch, an unmanned test flight of the new advanced Muun Capsule (the Muun is the mun in Kerbinary, but it's a planet)

Liftoff!

Next: we farmed some science

Now for the launch of Telecom 1 - Dawn 5. it will validate the usefulness of communication satellites in orbit. it will be the last of the Cargo Bay Satellites

Ignore the antennae

Mission accomplished!

 

Now for a Big Deal

TO TYLO

BRAiK9D.png

To get to Tylo, the New Horizons rocket will be in its most powerful configuration, with 3 stages and 4 boosters. Also, sorry for the lack of pictures. The mission was stressful.

At Tylo, flying by GIlly

Now the fuel is spent and the active part of the mission has ended, the passive part can now happen

All in all, a good day for the KSP
