Introducing:
Project Longline
This project will be the greatest achievement humanity has made YET, travelling 36ly away with, of course a latency of 36 years (unless if there are some kind of FTL comms, then we'll use that). This project requires sending a Satellite to VISS-982, presumably also landing to VISS-982a, a Super-TheoEarth planet, to collect samples. Generaly, this project is for research of space beyond the Sun's SOI or Hill Sphere.

Current Status: Launched!

Alright, The Rockets are functional, landing legs are securely locked, the fairings are also locked properly, fuel has reached its lowest possible temperature, the rocket is ready, just one more hour.

Asteroids in the asteroid field are very far apart, so they don't have to worry about crashing into one.
