On to "Insane Project number 3".

Thought I might share this one as the ship is ... 'impressive'

I currently have an unmanned probe circling Jool (that was fun ...) and discovered some interesting things ... sooo ... I thought I might send a manned flight.

Problem is, there's no way you can refuel or anything once you get there ... The Kerbals are on their own and, quite frankly, this is probibly a one-way mission. "FOR SCIENCE!" was what was written on the recruitment posters.

Had to create a ship. Need at least 5 landers (I made 6 for 'balance'), a base station for high orbit over Jool (needs to be high) and a star-drive to get me there. I figure 8 Jumbos and 8 'Mainsail' drives should do.

Getting the individual components into a 1,000 km orbit and then 'assembling' them has been an engineering nightmare.

Well, I'm about to 'set sail' so Good Luck, brave Kerbals and farewell.


Also, for using 'irony' when it's a 'simile' (curse you Alanis Morissette!)
