United Kerbal Space Agency Presents:

The Khonsu Program

Kerbalkind's First Journeys To The Mun 

Inspired By: The Apollo Program

 

Introduction:

Why? Basically because I want to add more lore to my crafts, and I think this is the best way to do it. 

I will mainly be posting crewed Mun missions, crewed LKO missions, and space station stuff.

Mission uploads will be sporadic (I'll try my best, I have lots of other stuff to do)

Craft Files:

Right Here (Might take a while for the craft files to be uploaded, I don't like making infographics :()

Thanks:

Thanks to @keanukeno21 for this piece of artwork, used in my UKSA flag.

Thanks to @Autochrome for their Hyperion Program, and @AmateurAstronaut1969 for their Space Station Freedom and Artemis Program for inspiring me to make this.

Thanks to N9 Gaming for inspiring lots of my crafts

And finally thanks to squad for this awesome game.

Mod List:

As of June 4 2022

  • Sphinx 2 - A flight of the Sphinx to resupply the Osiris Space Station.
  • Osiris EM-7 - The seventh crewed Osiris mission.
  • Necho - Osiris - The second Osiris expansion, to finally add a lab.
  • MEM-3 - The first Munar landing.

Seth 1 first stage static fire

UKSA will conducted a static fire test to verify all systems on Seth 1's first stage are ready for operation.

The Seth 1 first stage sits suspended above the horizontal test stand where many rockets have sat before, and more rocket will surely follow.

"Horizontal test stand clear"

With the static fire going perfectly, ground control tests the gimbals of the five engines.

The fuel exhausted, the engine shuts down and concludes its 124-second burn.

Khonsu Block 1 Pad Abort

Before the UKSA can fly crew, it must verify the abort capacity of the Khonsu capsule, this the first of two tests.

 

mmVlatd.jpg

The Khonsu capsule sits on the launch pad, supported by an improvised test stand.

EI4LqCV.jpg

The capsule fires it launch abort tower, pulling the spacecraft away.

 

Vm2EXTH.jpg

The launch abort tower flies away from the spacecraft, coming dangerously close to pulling the capsule into the ground

 

52muRqD.jpg

All the parachutes deploy, and the heat shield falls away to maximize drag and minimizes mass.

66azf2e.jpg

The capsule lands not a dozen meters away, with no significate damage to the spacecraft.

(I am done with finals, so hopefully I will have more time now)

In preparation for the first Khonsu crewed flight UKSA must test the inflight abort capability of the capsule.

With the first crewed flight looming UKSA must conduct one final test, a complete uncrewed mission.

The crew will spend two months on board, conducting research, improving the life support, and repair a sticky RCS port.

Next up: Sphinx 1

Osiris EM-6

(I'm Back)

A Khonsu Block 1 capsule will be launch atop a Seth 1 booster, lifting it into orbit. Once in orbit Osiris EM-5 will depart, and EM-6 will dock to Osiris.

Crew:

Zeluki Kerman - Pilot

Phoul Kerman - Engineer

Fergan Kerman - Engineer

After a first stage "anomaly", and the drogue chute failing, the Osiris EM-6 crew is still on edge. Rescue crews scramble to bring the crew back to the KSC. Wernher von Kerman sighs, knowing that he has lots of paperwork, and redesigning ahead of him.
