There was still more work to be done and more money to be made. Next up were two contracts that were easy and lucrative enough, but required a scientist.
Our original scientist still being on strike, we'd have to hire a new one. I called up one of the applicants, one Mant Kerman. Upon arrival, I asked her to give an example of why she would make for a good scientist, to impress me with his intelligence. She started counting. Good enough for me! Though it did earn her the nickname "123".
As she returned to the compound, Ms. Health also returned from her fundraising campaign. With her comes a more prestigious contract: take two civilian tourists out into orbit. To go with that, I grab another contract to grab some Science! data from space around Kerbin. Might as well while we're up there anyway.
