#010: Kerbals. In. SPAAAAAAAAACE!

Once orbit was successfully achieved with an unkerbed craft and the payload was returned successfully, the push was on for getting a kerbal up into space next. Excitement and enthusiasm permeated the entire project and Kerbin V was designed and constructed in record time. Commander Jeb, the best of the best, was the unanimous selection by the KSA board for being the first to take the trip up into orbit. The KSA was poised to accomplish a major feat and all eyes were on the Agency from every corner of the world.

#007: Falling Forever – Moar Powa!

Although the loss of Kerbin I was a disappointment, it was also a lesson learned. Kerbin II was the next attempt to attain orbit, with a better ascent path and more battery power. Orbit was all but assured for this flight, the only challenge was to return the payload to Kerbin intact.

#003: Chimps Are For Wimps (Flight 1)

Wasting no time, the Kerbal Space Agency threw aside the notion of sending an animal for the first crewed rocket launch and instead picked the best of the best from its initial cadre of astronauts to “pilot” the first ever kerbed sub-orbital rocket flight. There was a good deal of argument by Commander Jeb and the other two astronauts over the fact that they were more passengers than controllers on these flights, ultimately the engineers caved and implemented some rudimentary controls with the promise of the next pod being more suited to pilots.

The Founding of the KSA (leading up to 2/18/14)

Although united under a world government for almost 60 years following the Great War and enjoying a time of peace and prosperity, many kerbals continued to remain focused on rebuilding a world that had nearly faced destruction. Scientists continued to cast their gazes upwards to the heavens, but found little support from the kerbs around them to break free of gravity and venture out into the unknowns of space. Then, just 5 years ago, a kerb named Drew Kerman decided that needed to change. It was a long, arduous process to fight government oversight and establish relationships with companies willing to part with money to fund the venture, but the Kerbal Space Agency was officially founded on September 29th of 2013. It would spend the next several months working on the technology required to begin even contemplating the idea of actually reaching space.

This summary leads up to and covers the events of and between Mission Dispatches #1 and #2.
