Very cool!

Will the tug be reused in the future, or does it only have enough fuel to reach minmus?

Inferring by the name tug it will likely be refuelled but I can't see any docking ports or RCS so I have no clue if it can.

The tug was really used just to test out the engines (from Kerbal Atomics) so it was terminated in the tracking station. Didn't even have it's own probe core, lol

With some old parts in storage we finally made a landing probe to Laythe.

The Sunbather.

We found a Bottom half of an Apollo Lunar Module, an old engine from a Vanguard Rocket that never flew, slapped a battery, probe core, parachute, transmitter dish, science equipment and since the local city was replacing their sodium street lamps with LED we got the old lamps and bulbs for dirt cheap.

It's been 5 years from my last appearance in a KSP post (aside some brief appearance here and there)...

... BUT TODAY I decided that it was time for (re)install the game!!!

Mandatory, just to rust off, a Mun mission:

Nothing fancy, just a run in "sandbox mode", meanwhile I'm setting various mods (... here a test of the Mun lander by BlueDog), but it turns out a pretty location and an occasion to say "Hi everyone, again!" :cool:

I sent a probe to Sarnus which is a personal milestone since it's the first time I visited a planet from the Outer Planets Pack.

Spoiler

Sadly for the first picture the probe took, the only camera that got a view was the docking camera.

After we got into Sarnus' SOI and we got a stable orbit we were finally able to use the other cameras for pictures.

This one gives me Cassini vibes.

Now like Cassini in real life this probe was not made to orbit Sarnus forever so with the little Delta V we had we were able to send the probe to it's final plunge.

Surprisingly one of the Black and White Cameras was able to take and send a picture into the atmosphere before the probe was crushed.

That was fun and since now we know we got plenty of Delta V to orbit Sarnus and got to a Moon we are planning on landing a probe on the Moon Tekto.

After some tests and sending a orbiter to do some scans, we finally were able to send a landing probe to Sarnus' Moon Tekto. We got the backup Laythe Sunbather probe but altered it with side mounted antennas and the lamps now blink. Code named (I'm not good with naming things let alone acronyms) Tekto Information Learning Landing Yearner aka T.I.L.L.Y or Tilly named after a Lighthouse in Oregon.

Thanks to Tilly we learned that landing on Tekto is easy very similar to landing on Eve and taking off is alot easier than Eve, however it will still pose a challenge for possible manned missions.
