    A previous mission ditched in the pacific ocean killing the entire crew. See pyros earlier blog entry on it.

    Dear Postmaster.
    The insects died because they got in the way of the XR2.

    Ouch! Did they manage to score a hit on the windscreen? Or were they sucked into the scram intake during ascent?

    Bee careful on the landing, who knows if one of survivors is waiting back at Wideawake for round two.

    How did the station manage to reach a -73.44km x 773.9 km Orbit from the initial 324km x 324km Orbit?

    @orbitingpluto Windscreen Scram killing bugs is not my style. 8)
    @woo482 I have no clue my crafts orbit go wacko when I save a scenario and load it again later. It gets on my nerves sometimes.
