3 on life support, 3 on Ion thrusters and 2 on landing
$6 seems like a fair share of two Soyuz (and coincidentally it’s what I need to add to my $4 to achieve something else this year).
I’m ok, but will pass on both offers. Continue with whatever you’re doing.
Will can you give me a card update?
2 cards on landing, 2 on juno
OK, I’ll waste the $4; nothing more from me till end of year life support testing. I’m hoping for one success and one failure…
Bleak. I hope you name the life support system after the person who dies testing it.
Edit: I’m a fool. You’ve got two life support systems and time enough to swap between them. Unlike when landing or re-entering.
With astronaut in capsule A, test life support. If successful, eat supplies and test capsule B’s support without anyone on board. If not, move astronaut to capsule B and test life support. If successful, eat supplies. If not, bring the assemblage home on remote and have a hero’s funeral.
How can you test life support with no life aboard? Space is weird.
Capsule A was a Failure, however Capsule B was a Success. I’ve paid the $15 and those results have been removed, leaving just one more on Life support
So I have $5 left?
$10 by my count, but let’s pretend I waited for those capsule results until the end of the year
Really? Let’s invest in Saturn Rockets!
Done, Saturn opened
OKB-1 plan for the year
Assuming no money bonuses…
- Buy a Soyuz $8M
- Put a Supply on it and fire to Earth Orbit in a single stage
- Dock the Supply to the pair of Vostoks
- Buy Atlas Rockets advancement $10M
- Waste $2M on vodka and Black Sea caviar. Or lend it to CNES.
- End of year, remove last Life Support card max $5M
Let’s build a Saturn, load 4 Juno’s and a probe on it and fling it into Earths orbit?
(Have I got max payload correct?)
Yes, you can SSTO 5 payload on a Saturn.
That said, I’ll be happy to load a Supply aboard your untested rocket if you have the space…
