Docking Test Probe (Archive) 

^^ Craft Information - Launch Ascent Failure ^^

The R&D labs have completed the design for our docking ports, which will allow two spacecraft to mate in orbit for exchange of resources and/or personnel. For the initial test of these docking ports, due mainly to the current small size of our astronaut corps, only one of the craft will be under kerbed control, with the other being flown into position remotely. This is the remote craft that will go into orbit first and wait for the kerbed mission to come up for docking trials. This is the second attempt at placing the docking probe into orbit after the first one failed to ascend due to a m-km conversion error in the guidance code back in December of 2014.

Once again, the craft has failed to achieve orbit, this time although it made it into space it was almost 100m/s short of the δv required to complete its insertion into orbit. It returned to Kerbin and splashed down off the coast. An investigation is underway to determine why there was a shortfall in available δv

Regarding lack of launch data: telemetry was collected and saved, and will be provided retroactively in the future when we complete our new flight tracker feature that allows for real-time streaming of launch data
