The given reason is: There is already a tutorial on how to get to Minmus that is a lot more detailed. This one doesn't bring anything more, and may only confuse new users.

Travelling to Minmus

This tutorial will be teaching you how to get to Minmus, the outermost moon of Kerbin. It doesn't seem like it, but it is easier than the Mun due to lower gravity. You might be saying that it is further, so it is harder, however, the distance is negated by the Oberth Effect


The Minmus spacecraft is similar to the Mun and consists of 3 stages.

Upper Stage

The upper stage should consist of a pod (I prefer the Command Pod Mk1 due to the low mass and it being compact), 1 FL-T400 Fuel Tank, an engine and some LT-1 Landing Struts. If you're coming back to Kerbin, I don't need to say that you need parachutes (Mk16 Parachute recommended) and a heat shield.

Middle Stage

This should have a middle-sized engine and a tank. If you are a beginner, you could put on an FL-T800 Fuel Tank and an LV-N Atomic Rocket Motor. Though a Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tank and a Rockomax "Poodle" Liquid Engine is enough.

Lower Stage

The lower stage consists of some powerful engines and SRBs that get you into Low Kerbin Orbit. You all did it. You know what to do...
