Our function of the smaller milestone is to make smaller profits in preparation for orbiting another planet, which we hope to accomplish in the near future. As this will count as a grade as well, we hope to demonstrate our ability to produce efficient rockets on margin, and we need to achieve more milestones nonetheless.

Misson was successful. Achieved 10K. Screenshots will be available when I have access to the computer (Test runs to Jool are in progress)

 

 

Profits: 2500- 2279.20 = $220.80

 

 

Current Funds: 277441.10+ 220.80 = $277661.90

Team Name: Deveckler

Available Funds: $277661.90

Vehicle Name: Thiswillprobablyfail

Vehicle Parts List and Cost:

TR-18A Stock Decoupler 600

7x FL-T800 Fuel Tank 1600

Rochomax Jumbo-64 Fuel Tank 12500

Rochomax « mainsail » Liquid Engine 850

3x FTX-2 External Fuel Duct 250

6x EAS-4Strut Connectors 250

3x TT-70 radial Decoupler 600

3x delta-deluxe Winglet 600

Z-500 battery 80

Advanced S.A.S. Module 1100

Stayputnik 300

atomic rocket motar 1700

3x aerodynamic nose cone 680

3x Photovoltaic panels 100

4x Photovoltaic panels 300

Total cost = 37720 + tax = $41492

Design Goals: We have a simple design that has 3 stages

Launch Goal: Our vehicle is designed to launch a glorious kerbin into orbit around duna

 

Pilot Plan: Full throttle for as long as possible before overheating kicks in. Drop the four side fuel tanks once the fuel runs out. At 10 k angle the rocket to the side. Once the apoapsis reaches 80ish km, the pilot will kill the throttle until we reach the apoapsis. At the apoapsis, we will burn the reamining fuel in the Jumbo Tank to establish orbit around kerbin. We will burn throttle to break away from kerbal orbit into the sun’s orbit. From there, we will readjust to ‘collide’ with eve allowing us to set a new orbit around duna!

Major success!

 

 

Launch Time: 9:15 AM 6/06/2013

Team Members Present: Charlie, Luke and Devon

Play-by-Play: Upon launch, the ship achieved stable orbit around Kerbin using the mainsail engine. After detatching, we escaped Kerbin gravity through use of the nuclear thrust. With some adjusting and retrograde burn, the satellite achieved orbit around Duno

Time-of-Flight: 15:17

Summary: We succesfully put a kerbal into orbit around another planet, Duno.

Opportunities / Learnings: I learned that I should slow down and plan out future missions... again. By making an efficient space ship, double checking my past mistakes, and piloting with the help of an additional member avaliable, we were much more successful.

 

Milestone Awards Presented: Achieve orbit around another planet (2nd Place) : $500,000

 

.

Available Funds: $277661.90-$41492+500,000= $736,169.90
