A Trip to Laythe

Description

A stock aircraft called SSTO VI. Built with 99 of the finest parts, its root part is mk3Cockpit.Shuttle.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.0.

The cargo bay contains a miner and converter for re-fueling and an array of science instruments.

Notes

She can be a little unstable with low fuel so it would be best to transfer fuel to the front fuel tank to improve center of gravity on re-entry.

To get to orbit I usually use somewhere around a 30 degree climb out of the low atmosphere (before the jet engines flame out). It will take a while to reach orbit from Kerbin since the nuclear engines are required for the final circularization.

I can usually make low Kerbin orbit with ~2100m/s ∆v left over. Minmus makes a convenient place to mine and re-fuel before longer journeys.
