Design Goals: We are trying to get this rocket to orbit Kerbin. We are trying to create a rocket with a lot of stability to keep the Kerbals safe.

 

Launch Goal: We are hoping to launch a manned rocket all the way into orbit. We would be expecting to achieve launch to 10 km - $10,000, manned launch to 10 km - $20,000, manned launch to 50 km - $30,000, achieving stable orbit - $40,000, and achieving stable manned orbit - $50,000

 

Pilot Plan: Initially, we will be trying to gain altitude and velocity, and will eventually turn east. We hope to gain a parabolic arch path. At the top of the arch, we will accelerate to the horizon and this should put us into orbit.
