Mercury Redstone

A stock rocket called Mercury Redstone. Built with 53 of the finest parts, its root part is mk1pod.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.1.

The Mercury Capsule was the first manned spacecraft the USA where able to launch shortly after the soviet Vostok. The first flights were only ballistical, using a Redstone rocket.

This so called Mercury Redstone Craft was the basis for my replica.
It is like the original only capable of ballistic flights and cannot archieve a stable orbit.
Also it is equipped with a custom made Launch Escape System, activated by pressing 1 and then space bar to stage until the parachute deploys.

Over all a very simple craft, just like the original one and I think very close to it. Flying it is as easy as could be.
