Orbiter screenshots - Grand Flagplanting Tour Chapter 2
A vessel made of several other vessels was bobbling around an oven-like rock.
It's course was being laid. Towards the twin blue and gray dot over the Oven's horizon.
| Their course set, the Stars are shot towards their next goal.|
| 92 days of plowing the emptyness are rewarded by a blue pearl hanging right ahead.|
| And they arrive at the Garden of Eden.|
| That one is tricky to get down to. It's full of air and it's full of water.|
Yet, after hitting a board from low orbit on the Oven, it's no big deal.
| And on sunrise, the being aboard the Ravenstar found out that every garden have it's mud pools.|
| Latter the same day, the flag erecting ritual commenced.|
The mud was bad enough to keep the flag barely standing.
| Rituals aside, it's time to have some FUN.|
There are years of waiting ahead anyway.
| Thru air into the mud...|
Time to blast off this place.
| Mud or not, the view from over the Garden is breathtaking.|
| As land stretches and moves below you...|
| ...And you feel like standing on the top of the world...|
| ...But for a space dweller, it's a common sight.|
No big delay incurred, the Dusty Moon is the next step.
| Taking long for reaction fuel was low, the passage to the sattelite approached it's end.|
| And the Ravenstar dived into the shadow of the Dusty Moon, slowing down on the way.|
| Some good looks and reckoning for a nice spot to get down to, ...|
| ...and getting down to it didn't take too much time.|
| Hoping to beat the dust, he took off running to set the flag a little bit away...|
| ...only to find out there is not so much dust as the name suggests.|
Now, it's time to wait, the Garden hanging high above, untill the way to the Red Devil will be open.
What's with space flight and waiting?
