Sister ships KSS Copernicus and KSS Kepler depart Kerbin for the Reddish Planet.
This video showcases several mods that I use. The standout in this video is the ALCOR capsule (used here as a flight deck), which has RasterPropMonitor as a dependency. The combination of the two gives you the ability to command your vessel from IVA, if you would like. VesselViewer, ScanSat, and MechJeb also plug into RasterPropMonitor with nice results.
