After a long break from this community, I'm back to participate in this event, with my rockets that are burning.

Here I present my first rocket, no bp edit, no clip, 0% cheats.
First stage with 3 engines and 2 side boosters.
Second stage with the necessary fuel to reach orbit.
Third stage with 3 valiant engines and plenty of fuel to do the necessary maneuvers.
As a last stage, there are some fuel tanks whit kolibri engines on the sides of the capsules, with metered fuel for a hard but smooth landing.
884.3 t of weight

Achieving this great journey and taking the passengers to their destination was not easy, many simulations were required (no one died, don't worry).
Many impacts and terrain simulation failures happened, here I share my sad moments :p

After many tests, a successful landing was achieved in the simulations, so it had to be put into practice as quickly as possible.

The third stage begins to burn and we use the gravitational assistance of Venus to approach Mercury.

Leaving venus we begin to burn towards mercury and entering its sphere of influence

Very nice. :)
Do you have any pics of being captured into Mercury SOI? It must have been a quite fast encounter since you caught it near at aphelion, not perihelion

I forgot to take a screenshot of that but I can make a recreation of how it was

In the sphere of influence, starting to slow down in this position
