KERBAL SPACE PROGRAM LIVE CHALLENGE! – Part 4: We’re now in an stable and eccentric orbit around Sarnus, with a periapsis positioned close to where we’ll want our Satellites circularized around the planet.
This challenge, keep in mind, also involves RemoteTech, so we’ll need to account for signal delay for all of our maneuvers as well.
No refueling was permitted during the flight, however, the plane does not need to be recoverable. Would have been really nice to have done that though, and that was the original plan. However, the aerobrake around Sarnus was too much for our wings, which broke off the plane a mere 15,000m into Sarnus’ dense atmosphere. The plane will not be recoverable now. It’ll almost certainly end up as space junk, or perhaps we can get it lowered into Sarnus’ atmosphere once more.
