I'm playing KSP. I've successfully gotten a craft in circular orbit around Eve about 100,000 meters up for the first time (I'm a noob). I'd like to land on Eve, however when I try to adjust my orbit into the planet, I'm going way to fast. Over 3200 m/s.
My question is actually rather simple: Is it possible for me to slow down enough to land, and if so how can I slow down?
My resources are as follows:
- 1 atomic rocket motor
- 4 electric propulsion engines
- 2 Mk2 radial parchutes and 1 top parachute
- 2155 Xenon Gas
- 470 liquid fuel
- 1 poor Kerbal who might be stuck in orbit for the rest of her life
