Docking? Sure, why not!

Recommended Posts

Now, this took some research, some planning, and a number of tries, but matching up orbits for docking IS possible…

But certainly not easy.  Took a bit of practice (and perhaps a minor bounce off the station…)

But in the end, the Kerbals prevailed.

Once docked, a fuel transfer was initiated to verify the process.  After that, it was party time.  The Kerbal who’d been manning the space station decided he needed to get out after going a bit stir crazy.  Time to ride the rocket for a spell.

This, of course, left the space station unmanned, so one of our newly arrived Kerbonauts transferred himself over to the space station to take the helm.

So, it’s doable.  Who’s next?
