Muraleo Inc. Pre-Flight Briefing (Traveller)

Recommended Posts

Initial funds: $100,000

Vehicle name: The Traveller

Parts List: 1 Mk. 1 Command Pod $600, 1 FL-T200 Fuel tank $275, 4 FL-T800 Fuel tank $800, 6 TR-18A Stack Decoupler $400, 6 RV-105 RCS Thruster Block $620, 1 Mk.16 parachute $422, 7 RT-10 "Hammer" Booster $400, 6 EAS-4 Strut Connector $42, 1 LV-909 "Terrier" Liquid Fuel Engine $390, 3 LV-T45 "Swivel" Liquid Fuel Engine $1200, 1 LV-T30 Liquid Fuel Engine $1100, 6 Aerodynamic Nose Cones $240, 3 AV-R8 Winglet $640, 3 LT-05 Micro Landing Strut $200, 3 TT-18A Launch Stability Enhancer $200, 1 Advanced Inline Stabilizer $1200, 3 TT-38K Radial Decoupler $600

Design Goals: This design was made purely for getting into a stable orbit, and getting the manned command pod back to Kerbin safely. We used a 3 stage thrust system, with solid fuel boosters for the initial takeoff, then liquid fuel after that to allow us to control flight.'

Launch Goals: For this launch we hope to accomplish a stable manned orbit above 50km and EVA, completing all 6 Kerbin Milestones.

Pilot Plan: The plan is to get to a relatively vertical height of 50km, then angle at around 15 degrees above the horizon and thrust to gain some height while mainly building speed for orbit. This orbital maneuver will be done on the second stage of the rocket, with the 4 liquid fuel boosters.
