Career out past the Mun
A beautiful sunrise launch for these space tourists. They only signed
on for a trip to orbit, but today is their lucky day.
Free upgrade to an orbit around the Mun:
That still didn't bring in as much science as I wanted. Though further
reading seems to indicate that I should be doing things besides just
EVA reports and goo reports. Also storing the goo on the outside so
it blows up on re-entry is probably not optimal.
I hear rumors there's lots of science to be had around the space center.
Maybe we can hop around on a lander? Nope, not going to work. Should
have checked the thrust/weight ratio first.
Hmmm I guess we should finally put the airplane hangar to work.
This did work surprisingly well, except for the fact I don't have any
easy way to go backwards so we kept getting stuck.
Let's try getting to Minmus. Just barely enough deltaV.
Again a tourist gets a nice free upgrade.
Heading back. Learned the hard way that the two week trip will exhaust
the batteries and then you can't line up for re-entry or deploy the
parachutes. Need to shut down a battery to save energy for the end
of the trip.
Finally we have enough science to unlock some of the 90-science techs.
Still not quite enough for a lander/return, although I guess I should
look into unmanned probes.
