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.
