Have 13,000m/s Delta-V once in Kerbin orbit. This probe/satellite is designed for planetary fly-by’s and is made to be active for a very long time, powered by 1 ion engine. It carries a thermometer, a barometer, and a gravity detector for fly-by science. 4 solar arrays and 1 nuclear generator keep the electricity up to keep the ion engine running as long as possible.

When flown properly, this rocket will achieve a Kerbin Orbit of 100km apoapsis and periapsis just after stage 2 runs out. Stage 3 is the ion engine. Costs 70k to launch. Designed in version 1.0.2.
