Deep breath. Now... I have to do it all again. The second time is even worse because the stakes have just gotten that much higher. If I mess up now, it's three missions I have to fly over again. I'm incredibly stressed. Lazy Kerbals should do their own flying, see how they like it.
The second tank comes in a little crooked as well, but I back up, adjust and try again. Everything snaps together without incident, and just like that: Coconut Monkey Space Station is ready for business. CMSS will now help refuel flights on their way to the Mün and, possibly, even further.
Next week: the first manned flight to the Mün blasts off, and I try desperately to keep everyone alive.
