Mini Sample Return Capsule (MSRC)

Two size zero (0.625m) parts that make up an autonomous return capsule to stuff your experiments in for Kerbal Space Program.

Adopted by zer0Kerbal, originally by CobaltWolf and AlbertKermin

adopted with express permission and brought to you by KerbSimpleCo

Features

This mod adds two parts

  • Part: command with integrated parachute
  • Part: cargo-bay with integrated heat-shield

Preamble by CobaltWolf

Hello all! I have another new mod for you. A couple weeks ago, the incredibly handsome AlbertKermin asked me if I was interested in making a mini-mod. Inspired by the OSIRIS-Rex mission, he wanted a small sample return capsule that could be loaded with experiments and safely return.
