One Orbit! – Hux I-c2

One Orbit! - Hux I-c2
A few modifications were made to the Hux I-c launch vehicle and a second attempt at making orbit has been conducted. It could be called a partial success, but I’ll get to that. The second stage TWR was improved by swapping out the gimballing LV-T45 for the slightly more powerful but lighter and non-gimballing LV-T30 ...

I figured if I could do this then I ...

Orbit Insertion? – Hux I-c1

Orbit Insertion? - Hux I-c1
Even before the Hux I-b probe had crashed into the ocean the scientists back at the VAB were modifying the I-b rocket for the first orbit insertion attempt. A Low Kerbin Orbit of 71km is planned. The Hux I-c is essentially the I-b model but with an RT-10 solid fuel engine attached as the first ...

Probe Separation – Hux I-b

Probe Separation - Hux I-b
The Hux I-b, a significantly larger design, was quickly put together after the successful Hux I launch. It consisted of a 320kg unmanned probe atop a two-stage rocket with an all-up mass of 10.46 tons and surface TWR of 1.95. Payload Aerodynamic Nose Cone with TR-2V stack decoupler Probodobodyne OKTO2 + 2 Z-100 Rechargable Battery ...
