Unfortunately, due to a software upgrade error, the upper stage failed to perform its orbital insertion burn, and the spacecraft fell into the ocean.
C-2 Block 1: Flight 2 - Year 1, Day 369
Unfortunately, the problem was misdiagnosed, and occurred in flight 2 as well.
C-2 Block 1: Flight 3 - Year 1, Day 392
The software glitch has been resolved and our first satellite is now in orbit around Kerbin!
All went well until the capsule failed to orient properly and the parachute subsequently failed to deploy. This is why test launches are performed before crewed missions.
C-1 Block 2: Flight 2 - Year 1, Day 300
The installation of a heat shield causes the capsule to orient itself correctly during re-entry. This rocket is now rated for crewed flight!
The booster succeeded in placing the upper stage on a suborbital trajectory. Unfortunately, the scientific data was not successfully received due to an unknown failure.
Unfortunately, the rocket had been tested in simulation mode with SAS, which the available probe core lacks. Due to this, the rocket failed to escape the atmosphere.
B-1 Block 2: Flight 2 - Year 1, Day 244
The launch was successful, but the lower payload compartment suffered a structural failure and experimental data was lost.
Unfortunately, the parachute deployment wasn't programmed correctly, and the payload was unable to be recovered.
A-1 Block 2: Flight 2 - Year 1, Day 116
On a second flight, the parachute was still not programmed correctly.
A-1 Block 2: Flight 3 - Year 1, Day 139
