i wanted to continue, but for some reason time has gone back to 2h 57m, which is just after the Newton 6 failiure.
also the tech node survivability has not been unlocked, even though Newton 6 and later crafts used those parts. what should i do now?

Go to KSP/saves/(your save name)/backups, copy those backup save files and paste them in the folder up then try loading them in game and see if any of them don't have the problem?
(Also the text in your post isn't wrapping across lines for some reason, that's a bit weird...)

Galileo and Bobert enter the Iota Base.  Regrettably the planned JAMMED science experiment failed (not enough power), so they return to the Iota Space Station with samples
 

 

At completion of this phase:

  • the two crew of Ceti Lander collected samples from 3 adjacent biomes, ascended to the return craft and three crew safely landed on Gael.
  • the two crew of Iota Base Station collected sample science, and then ascended to the Iota Base station where they remain running science in the space station
  • the 6 crew of the Gael Space station collected science for a short period, then returned safely to Gael in two separate return capsules.

And were off to a late and Groggy start...  But here is the current operation/situation Jeb  was recently promoted in the R/D Department as he decided to retire from space flight for now. BOY, HOW  THIS WAS THE "WORST" best decision we made...... JEB in his haste for Other Kerbals to fly Forgot to unlock the Drones.

Recently unlocked the Planes after i unlocked the basic Sas. Next science Probe project is going to solar/ Then advanced sas  total of 180 science 6086c3478c905970a3091293ea9a6c71.png

Manned Science collectoer Mk1 The Juno engines in this configuration can break the speed of sound but just barely  and they are super effeicent  sipping on fuel.  im almost half way to the north pole From there ill collect a sample of dirt then return home followed by doing the same thing  untill i get enough science out of this planet

@jimmymcgoochie another quick question.  I am planning on a crewed landing on Icarus.  This will require a LOT of delta-V.  My plan is to make a single vessel from docking in Gael orbit a crewed vessel and an uncrewed vessel (nuclear tug).  The vessels never detach again, however the craft drops tanks as it progresses.  I am happy to initially count the vessel as if it is two vessels (one crewed, one uncrewed).  At what point could I consider it a single crewed vessel?  eg when all the fuel and tanks in the nuclear tug are dropped?

Also does the requirement for internal seats in a crewed vessel apply for craft returning to Gael.

Edit: 
I decided that Icarus was too hard, and went to Tellumo instead.
The return craft included the Lander (two internal seats) and the re-entry pod (4 internal seats).

@jimmymcgoochie as a check for the rules here is my strategy for Grannus.  

  • Crewed interplanetary ships must have at least six internal seats, have at least three crew and at least one free seat per two crew. 
  • Interstellar ships need 10 seats and at least six crew, with one free seat per two crew; landers must have at least two crew and three total seats.

    Can I have an interplanetary ship that has 12 seats and 6 crew, that after reaching Grannus SOI, splits into two active vessels each with 6 seats and 3 crew?
    Can I dock two active interstellar ships, dock them together, and then later split them apart into two active vessel again.

@jimmymcgoochie I have hit a fatal bug.  Whenever I time warp I get a message " A producer of ElectricCharge has incoherent behaviour.." and it wont allow me to warp faster than x1000.  I loaded Better Time Warp to see if this would fix it, it doesn't.  In fact Better Time Warp doesn't seem to work at all, nothing I press increases time warp.  Any ideas?  I obviously cant get to Grannus without enhanced time warp.

That’s a Kerbalism thing. It should work fine if you go to the tracking station; it always has for me at any rate.

200 years for a Grannus transit in the tracking station?   Is there a way to increase the maximum time warp speed?

Edit:  I just fiddled with Better Time Warp, and now getting good results in the tracking station.  So all good.

A little bit of rule clarification in response to a query from @jinnantonix:

ANY crewed ship that leaves Gael's SOI is an interplanetary ship, and ANY crewed ship that enters Grannus' SOI is an interstellar ship; they should have a minimum internal seat count of 6 and 10 respectively at all times, how you do that is up to you.
