For the inaugural mission of the Natopian Spacefleet, a task force of three Virgos: the NSS Shepard, the NSS Chowdhury, and the NSS Azillin, and six N-1s will depart Micras tomorrow at 12:00pm, CST, at Cape Newport launch base. The task force will land at the location marked as "1st Landing" near the largest of the Equatorial Lakes. The crews of the Virgos will touch down and collect samples of the lake water, soil, and other material while the N-1's will orbit Tarsica to begin a future lunar mapping program with the intent of colonization.
After 24 hours, the Tarsican mission will touch down back at Cape Newport at 12pm, today. Transmissions from the crew report only minor malfunctions and a success of the material gathering and mapping missions.
Huzzah Natopia, we have been to the moon!
