In Mission 1, named Satellite Launch, you launch your first item into orbit, a satellite. Your tasks are to launch it into orbit, face it towards HOM and release the payload.

The mission can be best achieved by using a Mercury 1st Stage, Connector Small to Small, Tug Module, Communications Satellite, and Fairing Standard, launch it, and then use thrusters on the tug module to turn so you are facing the planet, and tap the release button, you should then be rewarded with a gold award, if not try again, do it faster, and don't use checkpoints.

Mission briefing[]

This is your first real mission!

The agency has been contracted to launch a new Communications Satellite into space.

You will find the satellite in the Payloads section. Place it on top of a rocket, and cover it with a fairing.


Launch the rocket into space, just as you did in Tutorial 1.

Once in orbit, separate the fairing.

Orient the satellite's dish antenna downward, toward the planet's surface, and then release the satellite.

Good luck - we're counting on you!

Tip. Play Tutorial 1 to learn how to build and launch a rocket.


  • This mission will unlock the Communications Satellite for use in the Sandbox.
  • The mission name is often believed to be spelled incorrectly, that it should be spelled as "Satellite Launch"; but "Satelite" is an accepted spelling of the word in many areas of Europe.
