To the Mun! Apollo style. Redone in KSP 0.25 150 parts. Low part count for smooth FPS.¨¨ Abort (backspace) - will decouple command pod, and activate launch tower. Custom 1- will deploy parachutes and shed launch tower. Custom 0- will toggle gimbaling on outside Skipper engines. (1st stage) ¨by Mrchumley

A stock rocket called Uhhpollo 11. Built with 150 of the finest parts, its root part is Mark1-2Pod.

*Built in the VAB in KSP version 0.25.0.*

To use: Launch to low Kerbin orbit. Burn prograde at munrise. The third stage should get you an intercept with the Mun. On the way to the mun you must reconfigure by decoupling the lander and the command module, and redock the command module to the top of the lander (don’t forget to transfer crew into lander), and use the command module’s engines to circularize around the mun (25-30K is ideal). Once there undock the lander, and land on the Mun. If you want to keep the science from the lander you must store it in the lander can as the landing stage is meant to remain on the surface of the mun. Ascend from the mun and rendezvous with the command module, transfer your crew (and science) to the command module, undock the lander (you can deorbit it into the mun if you wish), and make the return burn with the command module alone.

This craft has the appropriate number of engines on each stage, and approximately the same equivalent delta-V, and thrust/weight ratio as the real deal.
