We attached a lander to this ship… and met with a lot of failure during the launch! Apparently we got the separation sequence backwards during the first and second stages, and released the wrong stage… Mayhem ensued, but we were able to save the lander with an early abort and splashdown. We also got some temperature and pressure readings while aloft, so not all was a waste.
Back to the drawing board on those stages, I guess!
