Description

A stock rocket called Mun lander 2. Built with 89 of the finest parts, its root part is science.module.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.

With this lander I did my first successful Mun landing.

I definitely wanted a Mk2 lander can to have a pilot and a scientist on the surface to be able to reset experiments.

The lander has enough delta-V to land and get back up with plenty of reserve for rendezvous maneuvers with the orbiter.

Back at Kerbin, there’s enough fuel left to first circularize a low orbit before deorbiting, so re-entry won’t be as severe as aerobraking directly from the return trajectory. Plus, you’ll be able to choose where you want to come down.

You can ditch the big tank and use the ablator for re-entry, but it’s possible to get the whole orbiter down to Kerbin and land on the lander gear :)
