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.

Color Code:

Red - Not planned (Craft file(s) not built), not complete.

Yellow - Planned (Craft file(s) built), not complete.

Green - Planned (Craft file(s) built), complete.

Phase 1 - Testing Of Systems:

  • Seth 1 first stage static fire - Static fire of a Seth 1 first stage.
  • Khonsu pad abort test A Khonsu block 1 capsule will perform an abort off the launch pad, landing nearby.
  • Seth 1X - A Seth 1 first stage with a dummy seconded stage, a dummy Khonsu service module, and an uncrewed Khonsu capsule. The Launch will be performed as a regular Khonsu - Seth 1 launch would be up until first stage separation where the Khonsu capsule aborts, reenters, and lands.
  • Seth 1Y - A uncrewed test flight of the Seth 1 rocket and the Khonsu block 1 spacecraft.
  • Osiris EM-5 - First crewed Khonsu mission, fifth crewed Osiris mission.
  • Sphinx 1 - The first flight of the Sphinx resupply vehicle and the Seth 1B, to resupply The Osiris space station. 

Phase 2 - LKO Operations & First Mun Missions:

  • Osiris EM-6 - The sixth crewed Osiris mission, preparing for Osiris expansion.
  • MEM-1 - A lunar flyby using the Khonsu capsule.
  • Osiris expansion - A new space station module is docked with Osiris.
  • MEM 2 - A descent to about 1000m above the Munar surface, then a return to kerbin.
  • Osiris EM-7 - The seventh crewed Osiris mission.

Note 1: Feedback is welcome as long as it is helpful

Note 2: Italics means a kerbal is talking

Edit 1: Green completed missions now link under missions

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.

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

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

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)

Seth 1X

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

Seth 1Y

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

(I'm going to start hiding longer missions, as they take up a lot of space)

"It's cramped, but better than the capsule"

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

Next up: Sphinx 1
