ELF110-Space  Wk7 Part C

About 1 hr

We are building a base on Minmus!!!  This lesson we will build a base that we will land on Minmus and use as a research facility and yet another fuel depot

From the KSP Main Menu click:

  1. Resume Saved
  2. Quicksave your game blah blah blah
  3. Enter VAB
  1. Your base should include
  1. A lab
  2. A scientist, pilot and engineer
  3. A large drill
  4. A ore/fuel converter
  5. Cooling systems
  6. A lot of electricity, preferably nuclear
  7. Tons of batteries
  8. Science experiments
  9. Communications equipment
  10. Docking ports for future additions
  11. Docking ports for a rover
  12. Storage for ore, RCS and liquid fuel
  13. Since we actually need to be able to get the fuel into space, you are going to need fuel storage/a space shuttle to get there.  You should be able to undock it from the rest of the station, fly it up, dock it to a large craft, return and re dock it to your base.  You probably want to include some rover wheels attached to the bottom to drive it into the station to re dock
  1. This is a reasonable base
  2. Build and test your bottom stages
  3. Once you are confident of your base, you are done for the week
