How much Delta V do you need to get to Jool and back?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to build a reusable ship to go to Jool and back, that has to have the ability to reenter LKO. My current design I'm working on has about 10,000 m/s and I'm wondering if that's enough for the mission it'll have to undertake.

The short version is that 10 km/s in LKO is enough to get to Jool and back to LKO, with even some dV to spare for maneuvers in the Joolian system. For more complete planning I'd suggest that you have a look at:

If you need help interpreting that then please let us know.

I'll also recommend to the moderators to shift this thread to the Gameplay Questions and Tutorials section of the Forums.
