The Mission: Duna 1020

- To Build A Base Station On Duna With The Needed Resources Available -


Starting With These Parameters

A: Don't Use "Fuel Generators".

B: No Auto Pilot (Mod's Can Be Used For Calculations And For Execution).

 Rocket Propulsion Has No Viable Generator That Can Fuel The Launch In Todays Realm.

Only A Small Landing Craft Had 1 Assist Generator During The Landing.

There Were 3 Goals

1: Find The Best Landing Zone For The Base. This Would Require A Reconnaissance Craft To Scan The Planet Gathering The Needed Data.

2: Land A Craft With The Ability To House Many Kerbals And Provide Needed Communications. Also Provide Mobile Units That Can Scan And Mine For The Resources Nearby. 
3: Send A Follow Up Craft And Assemble A Permanent Base On Site From Within Cargo Containers.

 Let The Fun Begin!  

 1: ReconProbe  2:  TrailBlazer

 This Craft Needed To Be Capable Of Traversing The Galaxy To Reach Duna And Scan The Planet.

We Started With A Simple Control Module And Added The Thermal/Solar Panels And Then Attached The Science Scanner By Adding Fuel Tanks We Could Place A Small Engine As Well.
Note: It Was During This Phase We Discovered We Could Make The Craft Small Enough To Mount 2 Of Them On Its Launcher Craft. This Would Enable Us To Scan 2x As Fast. So We Did!

 A Created Welded Base Frame With Pylons And Utilized A New Engine Design Now Available. 

Then Added 2 Dual Cargo Bays Each That House, A 9 Kerbal Flight Craft That Can Scan, Land, Carry Fuel And Re-Dock Plus A Cargo Bay At The Bottom With 2 Mining Rovers This Would Give Us A Wider Resource Pool With Built In Ore To Fuel Converters While Also Provides Kerbal Transport. 

The TrailBlazer Build Took A While To Come To Its Finalized Look, You See Today.   Housing Over 300 Kerbal's We Only Sent 72, The Observation Deck Was Added Last, Now Featuring Twin Science Labs.

 Trying To Provide The Most Cargo In A Simple To Drive Around Vehicle, Is How The CargoBase Box Was Designed. It Provides A Large Amount Of Cargo With The Ability To Drive Around (Landing Not So Well). So Chutes Were Added To Assure The Supplies Arrived. Inside We Had 1 Base,1 Science,1 Nuke Gen, 1 Nuke Storage,1 Nuke Centrifuge, 4 Housing, 2 Green Houses With 2-4Way Connectors, Many Connection Accessories Were Added

 "Additional Mission's"

Having Such Great Success With The Delivery Of The Cargo. The Decision Was Made To Alter The Cargo And Send A Second CargoBase Delivery To Duna. Thus Expanding What Is There Now. This Was The 1st Assembled Base Station Ever Created On Duna. 6 Additional Missions Have Been Launched. Each Adding Kerbals Per Flight -Next Page-
