Age of Expansion Campaigns The Spacers


With a manned landing having been done on Duna, the Kerbols now aim with a hefty goal, to create rovers for each moon in the Joolian system.

  8. Basic Docking (optional)
  9. Completed (Minimal)

Duna or Bust

Probes and Rovers

  • For Version: Every Version


Joolino III

  • Launch a Satellite to Orbit around Jool
  1. Satellite must have at least 2 solar panels
  2. Satellite must have a dish antennea
  3. Satellite must have at least 4 scientific instruments
  4. Satellite must have a 1,000,000 meter orbit around the body

Joolino IV

  1. Same Requirements as Joolino III and must contain a drop of scientific instruments
  2. Drop must make it to Laythe's surface unharmed
  3. Drop must contain a control unit
  4. Drop must contain at least 3 scientific instruments

Joolino V, VI, VII and VIII

  • Launch Satalites around the remaining moons of Jool
  1. Same requirements as Joolino III EXCEPT
  2. Drops must be sent to the surface of Vall, and Tylo which contain at least 4 scientific instruments

Joolinia X

  • Launch a Rover for landing on Laythe
  1. Must have enough electric storage to run overnight
  2. Must have lights
  3. Must contain at least 4 Scientific Instruments
  4. Must have a dish antenna
  5. Must land on an island

Joolinia XI, XVI, XX, XXI

  • Launch Rovers for the rest of Jool's moons
  1. Same requirements as Joolinia X EXCEPT
  2. Vall lander must land on one of the poles
  3. Tylo lander must land in one of the major craters
  4. Try not to get mad at me for these repetitive challenges


What the Kerbals found in the Joolian system was so intriguing to them, they decided to enhance their efforts to explore the area, which led to many more rovers, probes, and satellites. Eventually, the Astronomers decided that it wasn’t worth the effort anymore to keep transporting fuel and other necessities to the area. They decided to reach out to closer planets instead...
