All remaining activities leading up to the departure of SSTV-01 on mission #2 occurred when expected with no unplanned holds and we have now undocked from the Lunar Station. With no off-nominal activities occurring during our pre-launch preparations, the maturity of the processes and procedures at the Lunar Station for processing SSTV sized vessels is boding well for future SSTV activities. As a side note, SSTV-02 is nearly 80% complete as we depart for SSTV-01 mission #2.

The next...

The remaining 2 XR5s that are not going with us to Titan have just departed after the last cargo modules have been attached to our cargo array. All fuel tanks are still in topping off mode and we are at 90% capacity on supplies generated by our hydroponics and life support modules. When we reach 100% capacity, we will begin shutting down the modules in preparation of our TEI burn.

Due to the length of our Earth sling-shot burn to get us to Europa in 25 days, and the busy schedule...

All fuel tanks have been filled successfully and are now topping off until launch. The last 6 XR5s bringing payload and passengers arrived on schedule and attaching the last payload modules to our cargo bay has been progressing nominally. The 2 XR5s we will be taking to Titan have been docked and our passengers have settled into their quarters. There are 2 remaining XR5s with cargo pallets to unload.

Our launch preparation schedule is different from Mission #1 due to lessons learned...

The countdown for SSTV-01 mission #2 has begun.

Our mission plan has changed somewhat from what was expected at the end of mission #1.

3 of the crew members from Mission #1 who are currently at Europa Station will be needed at Titan to help construct the Titan Station. To pick them up, we will be making a rapid 25 day transit from the Moon to Europa. After refueling at Europa, we will transit from Europa to Saturn. Since Saturn and Jupiter are on opposite sides of the...

SSTV-01 has docked with the Lunar Station and this marks the official end of Mission #1.

Current Plans are to spend the next 3 months at the Lunar Station bringing up the cargo for our next mission to Saturn's moon Titan. The mission will start with a 100 day transit directly from Lunar orbit with a slingshot around the Earth. The assembly crew will be given a 150 day window to bring the Titan Station up to initial occupancy capability, and then a 100 day transit back to the Lunar...
