Just as a budget adjustment we had 201,581 and we got 1,000,000 for first satellite in stable orbit around a planet other than Kerbin and 180,000 for first non-Kerbin satellite (not space junk) so we now have $1,381,581.

Design Goals: This rocket is designed to fly to Duna, send the lander down to the surface then have it return to the ship in orbit which will take everyone home

Launch Goal: We are trying to be the first people to land on another planet

Pilot Plan: The main lifting stage will get the ship into orbit around Kerban and will have enough fuel to send on a course that will intersect Duna. Then the upper stage will be used to keep us in orbit around Duna while the lander will detach head down to the surface to collect samples. Then the lander will return to orbit and dock with the upper stage and will head back to Kerban.

Safety Rep: Brendan will be approving this plan

Have you guys attempted docking yet? also parachutes are useful for landing on duna using as little fuel as possible. Pics?

Launch Time: 9:10am May 31st

Team Members Present: All three members were there for launch but only 2 were there for the return landing

Play-by-Play: Use initial rockets to break the atmosphere of Kerban, and decoupled with starter rocket, orbiting Kerban. Used secondary rockets to break orbit with Kerban and enter orbit with Duna, then broke lander off of remaining rocket. Left remaining rocket in orbit with Duna, and then landed on Duna with lander and 2 Kerbals. Had Kerbals jump around for a little bit, then reboarded the lander and took off until back in orbit with Duna. Used retrograde to push rocket and lander close together and then docked, moving Kerbals from lander to rocket. Disconnected lander, and then broke orbit with Duna, gained orbit with Kerbal, entered the atmosphere, and then landed in the ocean for a successful trip!

Time-of-Flight: 1yr 71d 21 h 50m 48s 

Summary: We were the First team to land on another planet and return safely.

Opportunities / Learnings: We learned how to dock

Strategies / Project Timeline: Next we’re going to Jool and it’s moons

Milestone Awards Presented: First team to land on Duna and have a safe return.

Available Funds:  1,381,581-155,730+1,500,000= $2,725,851
