    Design Goals: Our goal is to land a rover on Duna. To do this we need to be able to dramatically slow down in a considerably thinner atmosphere. 
     

    Launch Goal: We are hoping to learn how to effectively land and maneuver a rover on Duna’s surface.
     

    Milestone:
    Land a Rover on Duna - $2,000,000

     

    Pilot Plan: 
    Launch and begin angling rocket at 20km
    Adjust rocket to achieve circular orbit
    Reach escape velocity out of Kerbin orbit
    Plan/execute an encounter with Duna
    Land softly in the thin atmosphere


  2. Funding Edits:

    Due to funding oversights by myself there have been a few budget miscalculations along the way. 

    Edit 1: On our mission to Minmus we achieved the milestone of First Kerbal EVA when Fuelanov planted our country's glorious flag adding $30,000 to the budget.

    Edit 2: On our mission to the North Pole we recovered our jet giving us $7,075 back to the budget as those parts could be reused.

    All future posts will have these edits accounted for in the budget. For an up to date budget, follow the link here: https://westiron-my.sharepoint.com/:x:/g/personal/anwansha18_students_westiron_monroe_edu/EfWKC_ov9kVDo4giHAAUnHgBukrl6RQxDKN7JG0jJ4B_pQ?e=dp7pJn.

    Design Goals: Our goal is to reach the UFO lodged in the northern ice caps. We need a lot of fuel and need efficiently use it within the atmosphere to reach the North Pole. We also need to figure out the coordinates on the map of the UFO or at least the general area.

    Launch Goal: We are hoping to learn how to effectively fly a jet and locate the UFO crashed in the ice.

    Milestone:

    • Picture of UFO on northern ice cap of Kerbin - $100,00

    Pilot Plan:

    • Launch off the runway

    • Through trial and error reach the altitude which we most efficiently use our fuel

    • Reach marked point on map where we placed the UFO

    • Descend and land on the ice caps

    • Walk to the UFO and place a commemorative plaque on it

    Design Goals:

    Our goal is to put a rover on the mun. We need a lot of liquid fuel and need our design to effectively lay our payload down on the surface without damaging it. We also need a rover which can be controlled with wheels as well as with monopropellant if something bad happens.

    Launch Goal:

    We are hoping to learn how to effectively put a rover on the Mun.

    Milestone:

    • Working Mun Rover functioning on Mun - $500,000

    Pilot Plan:

    • Launch to 20 km above Kerbin and begin angling west

    • Burn until our apoapsis is 90 km above Kerbin and drift until this point

    • Make our orbit circular at this point

    • Plan/execute encounter with the Mun

    • Center the Mun at our periapsis and slow until 20 km above the moon

    • Stop horizontal motion, land, and slowly eject rover onto the surface

    • Our proud Rocketslovian rover shall do doughnuts around the craters on the Mun... FOR SCIENCE!!!!

         TOTAL COST:    Fund27,519

     

    Design Goals:

    Our goal is to either land on Minmus and come back. We need a lot of liquid fuel in order to make it back from Minmus. 

     

    Launch Goal: We are hoping to learn how land on a celestial body. The easy part is getting off Kerbin while the hard part is... landing on Minmus... escaping Minmus' gravitational influence... and landing back on Kerbin... in one piece. Well at least we know it is doable. 👍

     

    Milestone:

    • Landing on Minmus (+ safe return) - $300,000

     

    Pilot Plan:

    • Launch to 20 km above Kerbin and begin angling west

    • Burn until our apoapsis is 90 km above Kerbin and drift until this point

    • Make our orbit circular at this point

    • Plan/execute encounter with Minmus

    • Center Minmus at our periapsis and slow until 20 km above the moon

    • Stop horizontal motion, land, and extend ladder down to surface

    • Our proud Rocketslovian Kerbal Fuelanov will walk around and plant our glorious country's flag and a spontaneously created quote.

    • Fly up and escape gravity of minmus

    • Center Periapsis with Kerbin 40 km above so air resistance will slow us down

    • Fuelanov returns home a hero

    Design Goals: Our goal was to place a working satellite into geosynchronous orbit which is archived when the space craft is at an altitude of 2,863.33 km above Kerbin while the craft is flying at 1,009.81 m/s. Like the original space race, our country has a lot to loose but everything to gain, even if that means putting a small beeping bit of metal into space just to intimidate rival countries and agencies... I mean just look at what Sputnik did. To achieve this we needed a large amount of liquid thrust to reach the atmosphere, we wanted multiple stages to allow us to deploy the satellite, and the satellite needed the required equipment to charge and broadcast signals of the Glorious Rocketslovia to our side of the planet.

    Launch Goal: We are hoping to learn how much liquid fuel it requires to get into higher orbits, along with how easily space flight paths can be manipulated to get within the designated range we need to become geosynchronous.The milestones we wish to break are: 

    • Launch to 10 km - $10,000
    • Achieving stable orbit - $40,000
    • First working satellite placed in stable orbit - $80,000
    • First working satellite placed in geosynchronous orbit - $100,000 (THE BIG ONE)

    Pilot Plan: We plan to launch vertical until 20km where we will begin angling west at 5 degrees and adjust as necessary. We will then reach 100 km, where we shall coast to our first apoapsis. We will then adjust our orbit to reach out to our desired radius from the earth (2,863 km). We will have a burn and then drift to said apoapsis, where we will then make the required adjustments to our speed and flight path to expand it into a more controlled orbit with a constant radius and speed. At this point we can decouple the satellite and we will have mission success. This is the plan at least. The good news is it is looking like a great day for a launch here on the launchpad, with our launch planned for 10:46 AM.
