// 51228b Mun base Alpha hab dry run
Deployed the Mun base Alpha lander and hab assembly kit on Kerbin near KSC to verify proper function of KIS assembly and practice base assembly. Forgot screwdriver. Delivered screwdriver by UAV. Some glitches in assembly, but all mistakes were correctable. Crew quarters and hydroponics deployed.
