Satellite 1

The aptly named Satellite 1 was the first unmanned satellite launched by the Kerbal Space Program. The Satellite 1 is an unmanned version of the successful Orbiter 1 (coming soon, maybe). The Satellite 1 is ideal for orbiting Kerbin and beyond!

The Satellite 1 won several awards, including most imaginative name for a spacecraft.

The Satellite 1 consists of a Stayputnik, a reachgeable battery, 2 solar panels, fuel tank and engine.

Ideal for beginners, it was the third craft I ever made, and the first to venture outside of Kerbin’s orbit

How to use

How to guide, how to orbit Kerbin 1. engage SAS 2. throttle to maximum 3. launch! 4. maintain speed at close to 150 m/s possible 5. at 10,000m rotate craft to 45° and throttle to maximum 6. continue a maximum throttle until the predicted Apoapsis reaches 100,000 m, press x to turn of engine 7. click on Apoapsis and plan manoeuvres which will put you into Kerbin's orbit. To travel outside of Kerbin's orbit the addition of 4 booster rockets is advised. I recommend looking at this guide, its not my own but it works, every time!
