First Munar Rescue Mission

A new ship was designed with hopefully a bit more thrust so we wouldn't keep getting stranded.

It would help if it was staged properly, so the second space bar press would activate the central liquid booster and *not* release the already firing solid boosters.

Another attempt failed, but the kerbals survived somehow:

Finally a successful launch!

Although the attempt to land and rescue ended up leaving the rescuer stranded too. Again, not enough fuel. He didn't even get close enough to say hi to the other castaways.

Also, while it may look like he landed upright, the ship in fact landed on its side again. A little SAS with the landing gear up somehow managed to get it vertical.
