Kerbal Glory

Bah. This setup can’t generate fuel and oxidizer without a tank feeding the converter. I’m going to have to launch a replacement converter unit with a tank on the next window. Having the spare parts came in handy, I forgot to mount power generation on the utility rovers, but could bolt an RTG on there.


Final Drop. Managed to pull it off without the extra fuel shipment that’s half-way out from Kerbin.  All landings and navigation done manually. Now we’ll see if this thing can generate some fuel.  (I had 77 fuel left).


This is when I realized the base mover rover that was supposed to be under the utility pallet got left behind. Oh well, the skycrane can land so it’s not a big deal. View Larger

I forgot, I’m also using KAS for fun. Actually, that’s the whole reason this base makes sense. At least, I hope it makes sense. I didn’t actually test it on Kerbin. Anyway, nice shot of the skycrane flying past the site on the way to rendezvous with the rest of the stuff.


First Drop. Could have probably brought all 4 modules in one go, but it seemed unwieldy, unphotogenic, and wrong.


Rendezvoused the drill and reactor with the out-of-fuel skycrane, and left the transtage behind. Skycrane is back in business with all the base components.


Landed at the planned mining site to provide an easy target for the bast components.

Answer to question: It’s a 2 kerbal capsule from Near Future Propulsion. I’m using that, and the Habitats, and Kethane. I also have MechJeb but I’ve only used it for plane changes and half the dockings.


Managed to rendezvous the lander and return vehicle with the Discovery which had been mapping Bop for 6 months or so.
